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!

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!

Get cozy with an extra dose of black and white buffalo flannel.

This beautiful table will keep everyone jolly throughout the whole holiday!
