Object Round-Up: Table Setting

Felt Place Mats via Canvas

There’s nothing I love more about the holiday season than to gather with friends and family around a well-set table to enjoy a home cooked meal.

I plan my setting and pieces out way in advance to make sure I have everything just right.  To me, the planning of the decor, menu and night is just as fun as the actual meal itself.  I know…design dork, right?

Anyway – I haven’t done enough of this entertaining this year – but now that the holidays are upon us, I’m getting my plans together for a couple of get-togethers. I can’t wait to mix and match my favorite serving pieces, and mix in some new loves as well.

Table linens are a great way to dress up your table in a flash…small touches that really pull the whole look together.  I’m not personally a fan of over-the-top holiday decor and tend to favor neutral colors in rich textures, that I can use again and again – no matter the occasion.  And this year there is no shortage of amazing pieces to update my look!

For a bit of fun, I love this placemat to color from Modern Twist…the perfect distraction for the kids or kid-like during dinner.

I also love the idea of personalizing some of these neutral pieces with a stencil…this cork would be perfect with a stenciled metallic letter, shape or number.  See inspiration and instructions here if you’re feeling crafty!

And although I usually stick to neutrals, this bold stripe is pretty fab.  I can see it with dark grey dishes and metallic accents…which for me means more shopping:)

Chilewich Placemats via Sur la Table

Chilewich has loads of amazing placemats and runners that I think would be fun to mix-and-match to create your own signature table style.  The weave and croco are two of my favorites!

Porter Silver Tablecloth via All Modern

A subtle silver stripe would play off metallic table accents perfectly…

Feather Placemat via Jayson Home and Garden

I’m totally loving the feathers this season…though, not quite sure how I feel about it being so close to my food.  Maybe I’ll stick to underneath the centerpiece for my touch of feather!

Wood Placemats via Plush Pod

And last but not least, a couple of wood styles that would add the perfect rustic touch to any modern table.

Do you have a signature table setting style or one your itching to test out this year?
