Who here loves to host a party? We knew you were out there, okay then just between us party hosts we can be totally honest… and honestly, we know the best part of hosting a fancy dinner party is laying out THE PERFECT dinner table just before everyone arrives!
We love all our friends and family, but ooooh, the perfect table just gives us satisfaction shivers. Standing back and enjoying the picturesque setting you have created for your loved ones to eat laugh and share stories in, around and over is what the Holidays are all about. Gurl, we get you, which is why we put together these ten tables that are perfectly set for the Holidays. So get ready to gather some fab new ideas for your next party!
Starting right off with a bit of an interesting choice… paper plates??! “Wedding Chicks! We thought you understood, what happened to all the pretty things you just said about hosting the perfect party?!”
Now before you tell us to hit the bricks, hear us out. Party hosting is the best, conversely, party clean up is THE WORST. You love having tons of people over but the piles of dirty plates and cups are cringe-inducing. So what about a super cute set of paper place settings! This Harlow and Grey geometric set are the perfect incognito paper plates that you can happily just toss after the big meal! Have we won you back?
2. Plethora Of Fruit
the classic Holiday centers around rich foods and tons of sweets, but we are so in love with this cozy, yet fresh Holiday table packed with an eye-popping amount of fresh fruits. This sweet table decor is breaking all the rules, in fact, it might be starting a fun new tradition! Instead of some late night dinner party, what about a fun Holiday brunch featuring a mimosa bar! We are totally stealing this idea, if not this year it is on the list for next!
Side note, if you need some help designing a mimosa bar we’ve got you covered, check out this Bubbly Bar we put together!
3. Twinkle Little Star

As we approach the winter solstice we have a whole lot more time to observe the night skies. The mystery and spirituality of this time of year is wonderful, which is why we love, love, LOVE these starry night West Elm plate sets. Paring them with a fun pop of gold and a darkly toned centerpiece has us wondering… are they too pretty to eat off of?
4. Dark Winter Wonderland
To all those dark souls out there, we would like to say “We see you, and this is as much for you as it is for us.” This amazing black, white and deep purple winter table setting has us nearly swooning. Not only is it fabulously unique as well and beautifully minimal, we love any color palette that embraces the rich dark color of a Cab Sauv or Pinot Noir. Ooooh, shivers with how good this table looks!
5. Easy Breezy Gold And Pine
Speaking of a minimal table, this sweet and simple white and gold pine garland table is as fresh as a cool winter breeze. So lovely and easy to replicate with a few candlesticks and a fresh bough of pine. We LOVE it!
6. Flannel Forever
Get cozy with an extra dose of black and white buffalo flannel. This table is black, gold and white and rustic all over, from the juniper and pinecone centerpiece sprinkled with porcelain deer and aspen bark pillar candles, to the beautifully tied flannel napkins set next to a delicious bowl of soup. This beautiful table will keep everyone jolly throughout the whole holiday!

7. Silver And Gold Never Gets Old
The holidays are all about things that shine and sparkle, so why not let your table be one of those things! A snowflake runner and frosted tree place card holders hint at the winter wonderland outside your dining room window while the warm golden glow of the chargers and flatware will have you and your guests feeling toasty all night long!
8. Gettin' Farmhouse Cozy
Is there really such a thing as too many Christmas trees? We don’t think so, and this next farmhouse-inspired table setting is here to prove that! The star of the show is that sweet little miniature pine at the center of the table surrounded by the hardworking place settings all dressed up and ready for a great time. This cute little table is whimsical as well as breathtaking!

Shower your table with fairy lights! You can find these at Front Gate but really just about anything that floats above you and your guests while you nosh together is going to be freakin’ fabulous!
10. Scandi Fab Greenhouse
Last but anything but least is a little green and grey Scandinavian themed table we love so much! The minimal decor allows those gorgeous green plates and bowls to really catch and keep your eye. and the cute little cutting board chargers hint at some tasty dishes in the meal to come!
