5 Tips to a Stress-free Holiday Table Setting

Holiday get togethers should be fun and stress free. So I have put together my top 5 ways to a stress free table setting 

1. Mix and matched patterns and colors 

Don't worry if you don’t have a set of 12 matching place settings. You can see here that I mix and matched patterns and colors of dishware that I already had. You can use 2 sets of dishes, just alternate colors for a cohesive design.

2. Use your own sense of style

My second tip which relates to mixing and matching is to use your own sense of style. You don't have to use traditional color schemes. It's your home, family and friends.  They already know your style – decorate with colors you like. 

3. Use natural elements in your table setting

 My third tip is to use natural elements in your table setting. Don't be afraid to go in your backyard and find items like these pinecones.

These are such easy DIYs. Start off by cleaning your pine cones. I did this by soaking them in warm water and vinegar. After you let them dry, you can then add a name tag or a tea light candle.

4. Create mood lighting 

Create mood lighting by using warm colored light bulbs in your chandelier. You can also use candles. Just remember to use unscented candles so that they don’t fight with the smells of your dinner
