The holidays are just around the corner and after a whirlwind of a year, creating a comfortable and safe space for family to gather has never been more important. Our approach? Small gatherings, big moods.
Recipe for entertaining success: a fuss-free and fun table and a clear path to the wine fridge. We'll let you handle the wine and we will serve up some inspiration for the table.
Our creative director, Liz, set the table in her Savannah home with linens and accessories from Freshly Set. If you have a hard time committing to a style, Freshly Set should be your new go-to. The brand makes it easy to rent designer goods for your special occasion and easily ship them back when the night is over. If you're loving Liz's fun table as much as we are, we've included a similar look below with all of the sourcing for your shopping pleasure!
Now that we've wet your appetite for pretty tables, here are our ideas for your next dinner or holiday party. :)
Our first look is inspired by Liz's table created with Freshly Set. This bright and poppy scheme is sure to liven up any dinner. In the winter, pair it with darker greenery and bright red berries and carry it into summer with tulips as seen in Liz's home.
