A Perfect Holiday Tablescape with Pier 1 Imports
November 12, 2014
Holiday Entertaining
With the holidays fast approaching and an event calendar filling up at rapid speed, we thought it would be fun to dive into entertaining in a beautiful way with some of our favorite items from Pier 1 Imports. We're starting this series off with the main show-stopper – the almighty tablescape. This holiday version is all at once organic and festive and built around pieces that add a seasonal warmth to the dinner table.
To get the look for this beauty, we layered earthy tones with deep blue, dashes of sparkle and lots of candlelight. The result is moody ambiance that's also incredibly cozy. Now add to that a few easy crafts sprinkled on top and you will be well on your way to a holiday table that wows.
For starters, tie your napkins with pretty ribbon or twine and fan out on each place setting. Next, create "chargers" with greenery. We used olive branches but it could easily be done with foraged greens. Just go outside and snip! And no table is complete without menu cards + place cards for your guests. We incorporated an elegant, no-fuss calligraphy version that blended beautifully with the tablescape.
And there you have it. With gorgeous, timeless pieces from Pier 1 Imports, the addition of a little greenery and some delicious food and drink, you will be well on your way to the perfect holiday tablescape. Here's a round-up of our must-haves from Pier 1 Imports that will have you entertaining in style.
