Transitioning your home décor for each season doesn’t have to be complicated. With a few simple changes and some intentional item placement, you can convey the joy and beauty of each season. The transition from summer to fall to winter may seem like a challenging one, as bright, light and airy décor gives way to warm, cozy and even festive looks. It’s important to remember that you don’t have to completely overhaul your décor in one swoop. Gradual additions of seasonal tones and textures can help you ease from season to the next, bidding farewell to the season that is ebbing away while welcoming the change that is to come.
And while many focus on the décor in their homes – dressing beds in dreamy linens and topping furniture with seasonal items – don’t forget to include your table when thinking about holiday décor. The fall and winter holidays are a time for celebratory meals, and offer the perfect excuse to add a little something extra to the everyday routine. A little extra flair in your dining space can echo both your personal style and the season at hand.
Linens: A simple way to reflect the season at hand, table linens such as napkins, table runners, placemats and even cushions and throws can evoke feelings of warmth, celebration and majesty and evoke the festive feeling of autumn or winter holidays at any table. Beautifully layered linens in rich colors make mealtime something to be savored and treasured.
Tableware: Tableware offers you the opportunity to reflect autumns warm tones or the reds, greens, blues and silvers of winter in flatware, place settings, stem wear and serving pieces. Carefully-selected items can be blended to reflect the colors of the season, highlighting holiday charm with the utmost class and sophistication.
Natural elements: Don’t forget about the power of natural elements when dressing your table for different fall and winter holidays. An armful of branches, a scattering of leaves or a bower of pine boughs can quickly and efficiently provide the backdrop for a beautiful and unforgettable tablescape.
Décor: After you’ve arranged basic elements such as linens, tableware and a centerpiece, don’t forget a few finishing touches. Sparkling candles, distinctive place card holders, beautiful napkin rings and other memorable accessories will set your table apart and make your holiday meal one to remember.
