Holiday Tablescape Idea Board

Thursday, December 14th, 2017

Kick your holiday or Christmas tablescape up a notch with these ideas (and home accents) for creating the perfect tablescape. As you can see below, a well decorated table should be complementary, if not matching. Incorporating evergreen trees – flocked, wood, ceramic, etc. – brings the whole look together, and makes it easy to transition from holiday to winter (or vice versa). Glass jars filled with white lights or decorated in ribbon are also easy to put together and can be used for anything after the season is over. We like the look of this rustic bowl, and while it could hold candy, desserts (on a liner) or other food items, placing glass ornaments inside creates a sparkling focal point on your table. Collectibles and decorative salt & pepper shakers are perfect for filling spaces or creating a small holiday scene for your dinner and party guests to admire.

*You may notice we left candles off this idea board – that’s because they are a given!

Weekly Spotlight: Autumn Tabletop Accents

Wednesday, September 27th, 2017

As we move from September to October we’re bringing out more pumpkins, leaves and harvest decor to fully celebrate the season. One of the best ways to add fall charm to your home is with festive place settings and tabletop accents. Take a look below at some of our assortment, and view more (for all seasons) here.

Placemat and Table Runner Pairs

Along with many other new decor in our Holiday 2017 catalog are placemat and table runner pairs that make decorating a complementary table easy. You’ve seen our linen-like polyester placemats and runners before, and this season we’re introducing the Autumn Harvest and Autumn Maple & Butterfly designs. The Paprika Autumn Lace is also crafted from easy-care polyester (making holiday cleanup oh-so-simple), and both pieces feature a vibrant paprika color that is made elegant with oak leaves and acorns. When you shop our Holiday catalog, you can get free shipping on all three of these collections!

The Magic of Melamine

Harvest Melamine Dinnerware

Our Harvest Melamine Dinnerware made its first appearance in our Fall 2017 catalog for good reason. Melamine’s durability and functionality make these bowls and plates perfect for entertaining a large group of family and friends, a rambunctious group of kids, as well as your immediate family during normal mealtime. They are dishwasher safe and shatterproof, and have we mentioned the warm orange finish that is ideal for autumn?

Crow & Pumpkin Braided Jute Trivet

We would not be true to ourselves if we did not mention a braided jute tabletop accent, and this particular trivet combines country crows with plump pumpkins for a welcoming harvest accent. Use it to protect tabletop and countertop surfaces from hot dishes and plates, or simply lay out to accent autumn collectibles and decor.

Minimal Coffee Table Styling

Thursday, September 29th, 2016

Lavishly decorated coffee tables are beautiful for holidays and special occasions, or in a room you don’t use that often. But for the everyday, minimal-fuss decor on your coffee table can offer plenty of style with the practicality you need. Here are the basic ways to style your coffee table – and remember, less decor is more!

Glass jars and bowls are decorative in almost any arrangement, and you can add personal flair by filling them with ornaments, lights, potpourri and many other items. The single apothecary jar shown above can be placed next to magazines and books for decorative appeal, without getting in the way of your daily activities.

Trays and trugs are also versatile when it comes to decorating your coffee table, as they are available in a wide variety of sizes and can hold seasonal decoratives, fruit or electronics. If you’re in an apartment or have little counter and table space, a trug or ceramic dish on a coffee table can also serve as a place to keep your keys, money and other miscellaneous items.

Candles always look great on a coffee table, and you can employ pillar candles, tapers with decorative taper holders or tealights to create a romantic or rustic look that is not too over the top. A symmetrical look always works, or you can embellish the space around the candle with a wreath, family photos, collectibles and other small home accents. Flameless candles are ideal for a busy household or if you want a worry-free option, whereas burning candles have the aromatic element for extra appeal.

You can find these coffee tables on our website as well as home accents for more styling inspiration this season and throughout the year.
