Festive holiday table setting ideas, and a fun kid table idea, too!

It’s that time of year when everyone does a lot more entertaining. If you’re hosting one of the big holiday’s this season you’re probably thinking of doing a nice spread using the good china and crystal. There’s nothing more elegant that a simple table with a few pops of color or shine. Food as the centerpiece is always a great way to go – maybe throw in a few candles and you’re all set!

Or, you could change things up a bit this year and choose a theme for your table. The trend this year has been a rustic theme, one we have incorporated into many of our home designs. A rustic theme is an easy way to bring the beauty of the season indoors by using nature’s decorations like bark, dried flowers, antlers, twigs and greenery.
