2. Coppers & Golds

Be still my heart! As a metallic lover, this tablescape speaks to me! Whites, creams, copper and gold all come together perfectly in this sparkly table design. It’s actually surprisingly easy to come across the metallic accessories at places like Home Goods (I know this because that’s exactly where I got my metallic decor for the holidays), and get that million dollar look for less than. Get creative by spray painting existing decorations into fresh gold and using frosted greenery to live up the table. Gorgeous!

Embrace the lime greens, reds polka dots and stripes of the season, and go all out on fun printables and candy. Your kiddos will love feeling like they’re in the center of Whoville.

4. Buffalo Plaid

Bufflalo plaid is in style and in a big way. This oversized pattern may remind you of a lumberjack, but it has all the makings of a perfect rustic-themed tablescape too. The buffalo runner is topped with wood slice chargers, crisp white dishes and stylishly detailed napkins. Add more natural details like pinecones and greenery and you’ve easily brought the outside in for this beautiful table design.

6. Farmhouse Tablescape

One of the best parts about the farmhouse style is how it’s so simple. No need to cover up your worn in, wooden dining table. Display its rustic glory by accenting with simple farmhouse accessories. Use lots of whites, wood slices, and other natural elements like garland and fresh sprigs of herbs. Not only is this a simple design, it’s stunning too.

If you’re all about the glitz, you’ll love this colorful and shiny tablescape. Ultra modern and chic, this design uses non-traditional colors that still completely pull of the festive look.
