Dwellings: Holiday Table Settings

I cannot even believe that the Holidays are practically here. Isn’t so crazy how they come so fast and then like that, they’re gone? I’m stating to get excited and was inspired by some images, and wanted to share!

I am not a holiday decor person. I like using seasonal colors as a pallet for making things festive, but I am not a hang witches at Halloween or cornucopias at Thanksgiving, and I actually dread going in Christmas themed stores. The holiday settings below are beautifully seasonal and right up my alley. If only I had a dining room table… How do you decorate for the holidays?

If you are looking for some new pieces to spruce up your dinner table or home try West Elm, Pier One, Pottery Barn, World Market, or etsy.

We all need a brush up on our table setting etiquette. The holidays are a great excuse to bust out your fine china. Get creative and mix and match with new and vintage pieces.
