The Holiday Table

People are always rushing around during the holidays, but it is important to take the time to reflect with your family too. These types of moments are what add depth and pleasure in a time when we are never together and on our phones 24 hours a day. I found the old ways of doing this are the best ways; celebrate the holidays by coming together at a formally dressed table, which my family leaves out from Thanksgiving through Christmas. We sit at this table on several occasions throughout the holidays, and our friends and family are always impressed by our efforts.








Decorating the holiday table should feel like any other type of holiday decorating. It is a chance to bring out beloved objects that remind you of past celebrations and truly evoke the spirit of the holidays. Whether it is a family heirloom or a treasured antique piece, these objects are what really make the difference.
