Holiday Tablescapes

One of the most exciting feelings I get when selling a house is knowing the new homeowners get to decorate and make their new house a home.  Laura Ingalls Wilder wrote, “Home is the nicest word there is”.  And, what a joy to be able to share it with others.

One can easily feel the increase of holiday hustle and bustle as we near times of celebration with family and friends.  More than ever, I find tablescaping has become just as important as Christmas tree and mantle decorations.  Family and friends gather together around the table to give thanks, dine and share their love for one another.  Now-a-days, creating uninterrupted time around the dinner table doesn’t happen as often as it use to, as we all know, and is often reserved for just the holidays, so enhancing a table setting with holiday trim adds to the excitement and makes the holidays an extra special occasion.

Are you tablescaping this holiday season?  If you’re looking for ideas, Pinterest and Instagram are good places to start.  Here are some of my favorite finds.
