Winter is one of our favorite seasons for entertaining! From holiday bashes to intimate dinner parties, nothing beats this magical time of year. Here are a few of our favorite tips to make your winter gatherings fun, festive, and stress free.
During the winter, we love the cozy feel of a communal wooden table. For the center, we suggest keeping things on the simpler side and sticking with mainly greenery in the form of a thick, lush runner. Eucalyptus, olive branches and foliage in a sage palette works beautifully. To bring in some more texture, we love incorporating, hellebores, thistle, berries or even fruit.
For the tabletop we like to stick with a simple white plate with small details such as gold lining or a textured pattern. For the accent pieces we like to get a little more crafty. We have been loving wood details for place settings like these beautiful wooden coaster place cards and placemats. We also love a little sprig of spruce or a flower placed across the plate or wrapped into the napkin. Add a cinnamon stick for an extra wintry feel.
The table numbers and the favors are a great opportunity to showcase your unique style. We love these white gilded figurines for table number holders or food signage. For favors, we always suggest something that feels cohesive with the vibe of the evening. We love these organic looking jars of specialty salt infused with sprigs of herbs.
