The Holiday Dining Room

The Dining Room Table of Pat Hasbrook, Interior Designer

A memorable holiday get-together is comprised of delightful moments with meaningful people in an inviting atmosphere. With the focus of the winter holidays centered primarily around festive food and shared meals, the dining room table becomes a gathering place in the home.  At Camelot Homes great care and attention to detail goes into the planning of every home we build and the dining room is no exception. With proximity to the kitchen and family living space in mind, we create the space for dining, and you get to decide how it will manifest in your home. Will it be a casual area for everyday use or an elegant space to be savored on special occasions? Whichever direction you choose to go, your dining room can be enhanced by how you set the table.

How better to celebrate the season with friends and family than by sitting around an elegantly appointed table? Whether you host an intimate event or are bursting at the seams with guests, you can elevate your tablescape with chic, eclectic accents and uncommon but luxurious decor.

Nothing says holiday for some like a traditional table setting of matched china, shiny silver and glass goblets. A well-set table invites you to sit down, share stories and stay awhile. Yet some of the most gorgeous tables you will ever experience are also the most unexpectedly decorated.

Tree branches, votives and exotic flowers set the mood for this magical holiday table

For the season’s festivities, consider creative details when it comes to your holiday table. Setting the mood can be as simple as stringing fairy lights around a door frame or hanging votive candles from tabletop arrangements. Flickering light makes everything feel warmer and more romantic.

Add a Creative Centerpiece

Place loose branches or fruit bunches down the center of the table for a beautiful, nontraditional centerpiece that looks relaxed and chic. Take a walk outside and see what’s available. Look for branches, covered in flame-colored autumn leaves or bare as a bone, with an interesting shape or texture, such as covered in lichen or with peeling Eucalyptus bark.

Small fruits such as pomegranate and persimmons are especially nice this time of year and are also gorgeous when grouped together with the stems and leaves on. They suggest that a bountiful feast is going to be had…
