Yes I know that Thanksgiving already came and went! We ate the turkey and we shopped a little bit too much! But setting your Thanksgiving table can also be a test run for setting your Christmas table!
Last month we were delighted to parter with Lyndsey Zorich of L. Avenue for some holiday table styling! Below you will find a couple floral styling tips to make table styling a breeze for you this season.
Holiday Table Styling Tip No. 1 - Do not feel like you are 'stuck' using the typical holiday colors! Thanksgiving decor typically comes in shades of orange, maroon, brown. Christmas decor typically comes in either red, green or white. But you are not forced to use these colors! Especially when it comes to floral! Think outside the box. For this arrangement we did utilize fall foliage but we also added dusty rose blooms to break up the color.
Holiday Table Styling Tip No. 2 - Decide early on what your focal point will be. In this case, the florals were the focal point and the remaining items accented the arrangement instead of distracting or blocking the view. Lyndsey's use of clear candle sticks is the perfect example! You do not want competing visuals when the focus should be on those around the table, the conversation, and the food!
Holiday Table Styling Tip No. 3 - Consider the views from each seat! Again, Lyndesy's use of the clear candle sticks allowed for her end-table guests to still view the floral arrangement and the guest at the other end of the table! We do not style our tables to seclude guests from each other! The holidays are about coming together and enjoying company and your table styling should reflect just that!
