Join us during the first week of December as we share ways to simplify your holidays in style with Waco Home Organizers.
...this post brought to you by Baylor interior design student and Waco Home Organizers team member, Jessica Tomchesson... enjoy these fabulous tips for creating a simple, yet magical holiday tablescape!
Your grandmother’s polished silver or her prized china set can bring a heartwarming feeling to your table guests, even if you're leaning towards a more contemporary theme. Mix the china with a pop of color or pair the silverware with a bold patterned napkin.
Don’t stop your holiday joy at the place setting, finish with the food
Your guests will already be impressed with your hosting skills after they see your heavenly tablescape; but why stop there? Please guest’s eyes as much as their tummies with a fun decorative holiday dish or drink!
Love holiday decorating but dread storing it later? Make your centerpieces items your guests can eat or take home.
Every holiday shopper loves raiding the aisles of Target for holiday décor, but where does all of it go after New Years Day? The attic! This year make your centerpieces a take home gift for your friends and family, whether it is Christmas candy or a holiday candle wrapped inside. Another idea is to make your centerpiece full of edible treats that will be gone by the end of dinner!
Decorative place cards are a simple way to make your guests feel special right off the bat!
Place cards can be as complex and beautiful as you would like them to be! However, this is a simple way to organize people around the table, and enjoy mixing it up with new arrangements each year to connect well with one another.
Invest in neutral place settings you can use year round!
White, gray, and black table top items can easily be accented with a Christmas tree or a pumpkin to show holiday spirit, without having to buy and store a different set for every holiday gathering.

Make table setting a family tradition!
Let your nieces, nephews, grandkids, and cousins help you decorate your holiday table. It takes more work off your shoulders and might even bring a little laughter and joy to table!
Don’t forget the holiday mug! Christmas can’t go on without coffee, hot cocoa, and eggnog!
This is a perfect way to wind down a fun night with friends and family! After savory and sweet, you can provide your guests with a warm and comforting sip of a Christmas blend.
For many of you this excites and inspires you! For some of you, you love the magic of a tablescape, yet time escapes you to create all the details as you wish.
