The entertaining season is in full swing and we entertain in our home quite often around the holidays. There is nothing I love more than sitting around a beautifully decorated table with family and friends and enjoying a meal together. I really believe a beautifully set table will set the tone for your meal and it also makes your guests feel extra special! I knew this season I wanted to use some of the beautiful tabletop items from Serena and Lily on my holiday table.
When I was selecting tabletop items from Serena and Lily I wanted to choose items that would be neutral enough for any time of the year. I chose neutral placemats and linen napkins for this reason. I knew that I could use these items any time of the year and would select a fun tablecloth from my linen closet for a pop of color. We set the table every evening for dinner, sometimes the island too! So I selected the round Catalonia Placemats in natural from Serena and Lily to layer over the tablecloth. I layered my dishes on top of the placemats to create some dimension on the the table surface. I love to layer and I also love clippings from the yard so I snipped some holly berry leaves to place on top of the Salento Napkins (in flax) for a little pop of festive color! I added in brass flatware and of course champagne!
There are so many other beautiful tabletop items from Serena and Lily, that I love to use when entertaining. The Cayman Seagrass Wrapped Pitcher is perfect for lemonade, iced tea, or water. I use this pitcher quite often as a vase for flowers! I also love using the Poetta Vase as a larger vase for big bouquet of hydrangeas or greenery. A marble lazy susan like the Millerton Lazy Susan is the perfect foundation for the center of your table, especially if it is round. I love having a lazy susan on our table, especially one this beautiful!
If you choose not to use a tablecloth the table runners are a gorgeous option and a good way to add some texture to your tabletop. I also love adding in candlelight and the carmel rattan taper holder would make a beautiful addition to any table, especially with colored taper Candles. I love the avocado color for Christmas! If you are looking to add a little fun to your tabletop I would recommend the Holiday Crackers! Our kids love these at any celebration or party!
I love working with Serena and Lily because the quality of their products is second to none. And, as a decorator, I’ve found that it’s so important to purchase quality pieces that will stand the test of time … I want my company to enjoy themselves and feel casually comfortable around my dining table and Serena and Lily’s style evokes just that: casual elegance.
I am looking forward to entertaining our family and friends this holiday season and I am so thankful to have been able to work with Serena and Lily to help me select the perfect tabletop pieces to help with this! When you have the right pieces setting the table is a piece of cake! Happy Entertaining!
