With the holidays right around the corner, you’ve probably already started prepping your home for all the entertaining you are bound to do! After all, we sure have a lot of making up to do following last year’s quiet quarantine. But in between all the scouring and shopping, did you remember to plan for one essential part of family gatherings? It’s often where the most love, laughter and memories live - the dining room table. We have a few #CBHtips to help you personalize your table for the season, and ensure it can be the most memorable one yet.
1. Spray Paint Pumpkins
Bring some pumpkin spice into your home… and we’re not talking about a latte! You can still go full on fall mode, without the vibrant orange color that may clash with your aesthetic. The solution? Spray paint pumpkins to CUSTOM match your holiday decor. Easily bring out the dreamy hues in our Tribal Turkish Blanket with various shades of blue, perfectly complimenting the white and neutral gourds as well. Not only will this elevate the look of the table, it can also be a fun craft to share with the family.
2. Add a Message to Beaded Garland
Let’s get even more personal! What better way to make your home even more jam-packed with holiday spirit than by adding meaningful messages or phrases to a gorgeous garland your guests can be inspired by? Just imagine the wonderful smiles these hopeful tags will evoke, leading to an even more special experience for your guests. Check out our gorgeous Natural Wood Bead Garland and start planning which sweet phrases you’ll be carving.
3. Pumpkin Vase Centerpiece
Pumpkin spice and everything nice, and put it together to make your home a holiday paradise! A big celebration and gathering deserves a big centerpiece, but you don’t have to break the bank to grab everyone’s attention. All you need is a giant faux pumpkin, florals of your choice, and the spark of inspiration from CBH. Carefully cut off the top/stem just as you would when carving a real pumpkin. No gooey guts and seeds to take out of this one though! Fill with florals and pampas to your liking. Adding in accents of gold or silver can make an even more unique piece.
4. Add Sprigs of Matching Florals to your Napkins
Napkins are nothing out of the ordinary for a holiday tablescape, but add leftover sprigs of matching florals from crafting your pumpkin vase centerpiece, and voila! You’ll have a unique and unforgettable personalization to your table that your loved ones will find absolutely stunning! To prevent the florals from falling out of place we suggest these Coco Blanco Ceramic Napkin Rings!
5. A matching throw blanket to get cozy!
After dinner, you might want to cozy up on the couch, but want a blanket that’s within reach and in an inconspicuous place! We’ve got the perfect throw for you - no matter your holiday aesthetic! Our Ewa Throw is available in three colors and can be placed in plain sight, but will never look like it’s out of place. Leave it on a loveseat, couch, or even a futon - and it’ll make your home even lovelier.
Time is running out. Start planning your holiday dinners, parties, gatherings, movie nights and more… but don’t forget - tablescapes matter! As long as you keep it personal, and add a touch of love, your home will look magnificent and your guests will never forget it!
