Design Inspiration – Holiday Table Settings

The close of the year welcomes endless opportunities to entertain family and friends–from a casual brunch to that big holiday feast we look forward to all year. It's the perfect chance to get creative with your decor choices and impress your guests with your unique style.

With the help of our extensive table linens collection, we’ve curated some of our favorite holiday themes and table decorations to help you embrace the beauty of the season and curate a beautiful tablescape that is sure to impress.

Start with the Foundation

When planning your tablescape and decor, start from the bottom up. Consider your tablecloths, placemats and plates the foundational elements of your tablescape that can set the tone for everything else. Begin by selecting table linens that fit with your desired mood and then bring in dishes, glassware, florals and serving pieces that build onto the look.

Designing with Home Treasures Linens

When you start with our timeless linens, it’s easy to beautifully dress your table for the holidays. Our collections of bespoke table linens are incredibly easy to care for and are designed with versatility in mind so that you can enjoy them everyday with family or impress your guests in a formal setting.

Opt for a clean and minimalist look with a crisp linen set from our Provenza collection, add a pop of color with an inset detail from our Fino collection, or dial up the luxury with a lace detail from our Valencia collection. From the color of the linen and borders, to inset lace styles and even embroidered monograms, each collection offers a variety of customization options and finishes that allow you to mix and match table cloths, napkins, table runners and placemats for a fully custom look!

Keep it Classic

For a traditional celebration, never underestimate the powerful presence of small details. Create a festive yet timeless look with clean white table linens embellished with a beautiful lace inset from the Riley collection. Let white dishes, velvet ribbon accents, thoughtful place cards, and gilded flatware offer an artisanal touch. Traditional pewter serving platters, ruby red goblets and a table runner lined with candles will put the whole table in the holiday spirit.

Make it Shine

Add holiday glamour with golds, silvers and sparkling glassware. While Luciana Scroll’s linens are minimal in finishing options–an exquisite scroll-filled diamond pattern graces this Italian jacquard to create an elegant backdrop for an alluring tablescape. Layer ornamental chargers in gold or silver, matching trim dishes, and crystal glassware to set the stage for a gilded affair. Complete the look with the addition of shining serveware and decor pieces like mirrored trays, sparkling napkin rings, and stately candelabras. For added drama, don’t be afraid to dim the lights, light the candles and enjoy the flickering, gleaming reflections that dance throughout your tablescape.

Style with Seasonal Elements

Bring the outdoors in by incorporating natural elements and greenery in your arrangements and place settings. Start with table linens in earthtones like Zebra in Irish Winter Green, Ivory, or Cool Gray. For a rustic and natural theme, consider using natural wood serving dishes and stoneware dishes with a slight texture. Wow your guests with an added sensory experience by incorporating centerpieces that offer fresh scents such as fresh cut sprigs of spruce, a cedar garland, dried citrus fruits, and cinnamon sticks. Acorns, dried branches and pinecones are often easy to find in your own backyard and are inexpensive accents that you can arrange once but will last all season long.

Embrace Color

You can’t go wrong with the traditional red and green combination for your tabletop decor but don’t be afraid to go bold. Adding unexpected color accents like citrus orange, blush pink, and rich, warm ambers can add dimension to your theme’s palette. Ready to branch out from the red and green theme? Try a blue and white with silver accents using Arlo’s white linen body with an Azure embroidered edge.
