A Guide To Hosting The Holidays

A Guide To Hosting The Holidays

It's that time of year again... the weather is (a little bit) cooler, pants are a little bit a lot tighter, and the holiday spirit is in the air.  Our house is divided when it comes to the holidays- my husband loves Thanksgiving (a holiday about food and football? YES) and I prefer Christmas & New Years (champagne AND singing Last Christmas I Gave You My Heart on repeat? Count me in), so we do a lot of celebrating and hosting this time of year. 

Social media (read Pinterest) can make any host feel a little overwhelmed about their holiday set-up, but here are a few of my favorites to make your dinner table for the holidays budget friendly and Instagram worthy.

Let's set the table!

Do you already have white plates?  Perfect!  Let's jazz it up a bit with these super cute and affordable salad bowls, serving dishes, and mugs for coffee or cider.

Every holiday dinner needs a little something special. These chargers are a great blend of classic and trendy.  These are my favorite and come in square or round depending on your plate style.

Now, let's add some fancy flatware.  Gold is a sure way to turn your table into a upscale feast.  Try using these from Target to add some flair to your holiday (and everyday) meals.

And now for the most important part of dinner... the glassware.  Mix and match these wine (or water) glasses and champagne flutes for the final touch to your holiday table that is sure to make all of your guests swoon.

Happy holidays & happy decor shopping!
