Simple Elegance This Holiday Season
While the holiday season may feel somewhat different this year, it is more important than ever to focus on family and those we hold dear as we gather together. Simple, yet elegant hosting with enough space for laughter and memories. Here are some of our favorite designs for hosting more intimate holiday celebrations this year.
Dining and Gathering
Smaller gathering tables are perfect for conversation and reminiscing. Passing the mashed potatoes and pouring the wine are easily achieved across any of these beautiful spaces.
Round or rectangle, these tables and chairs hold your guests and your style in high regard.
Don’t discount the kitchen table for hosting if it’s just the family these holidays. Easier for serving and cleanup while allowing you to stay a part of the conversation during prep. This set is the perfect backdrop for your celebration. White is also a wonderful starting point for pops of red or green all throughout the season.
Cocktails & Wine Toasts
No holiday celebration is complete without proper libations. Set up one of our unique bar cabinets or carts for guests. We love a mirrored back cabinet or mirror topped cart that showcases your finest crystal and allows light to bounce around the room. Select a metallic tone, pop some candles around, whip up your favorite cocktail and the mood is instantly set.
Layer on the Sophistication
Creating layers on your table provides holiday opulence. Fine table linens will make your guests feel special. A beautiful cloth, metallic placemats, fine china and then a layer of a cloth napkin achieves a sophisticated feel to your table.
Center It All Together
Centerpieces add the piece de resistance to your holiday table. Whether a bouquet of flowers, or a DIY hand-strewn centerpiece of acorns, leaves and fall squash let the center of your table welcome guests with color, fragrance and uniqueness. We love the idea of using an autumn pumpkin as your flower vase!
Beverage Tables Galore
Once dinner is complete and bellies are full, it’s time to gather around with your wine or apple cider and chat the night away. Set your drink on one of these fabulous tables or scatter a few around your room so all of the guests can pop down their beverage. We adore these sweet little tables that allow you to disperse around the room and coordinate with just about any style.
After-Dinner Mood Lighting
Mood is always set with proper lighting. Create a warm and cozy glow in your space with incandescent lighting. Adding a metallic lamp, or fun shape with shine amps up the holiday luminescence. After cleanup, put your feet up and enjoy a good book by these gorgeous lamps as a reward for a holiday well-done.
This year we can celebrate more with less and enjoy creating new memories together for years to come. Let one of our fabulous designers help you create a space worthy of hosting your most treasured family and friends. From us at Cabot House we are wishing you and yours a healthy, happy and safe holiday season!
