“I’d rather have flowers on my table than diamonds on my neck”

-Emma Goldman

If you think about it, a table sets the mood for many important occasions from holidays and festive family dinners, to more intimate moments with friends or loved ones. With this in mind, setting the mood is ultra-important and really makes a difference for a tablescape to go from boring to brilliant. A must for any awe-inspiring tablescape is a focal centerpiece. This can be done using fresh flowers (my personal favorite) or a holiday centerpiece, such as a bowl filled with balsam scented pine cones. It’s really just about keeping things visually appealing, because who in the world just LOVES eating at a bare table with a plain white plate of food…(I’ll wait). I think that switching the table for seasonal occasions is really the most fun thing to do that will make all the difference in your home. So spark some creativity and use these amazingly decorated tables as a source of inspiration for your own dining room, you’ll be amazed at what you can accomplish!

    Very nice set up. Those lovely flowers! Everything looks perfect. “I’d rather have beautiful flowers on my table than diamonds on my neck.” Very well said.

    Love the salad bar, and party ideas. Just wrote my own article on tablescapes (www.hometips4women.com/holiday-decorating-and-tablescapes) suggesting people add just 1 or 2 tablescapes to each room for holiday decorating rather than bits everywhere.
