'Tis the season for family meals, merriment, and holiday cheer! For tips on entertaining basics, I turned to the team behind Franki Elizabeth, a Brooklyn-based event planning and floral design studio, to create a holiday tablescape using everyday items sourced from your own home!
Gather Your Ingredients
Get to know what you’re working with. Before you begin decorating, take stock of all of your “ingredients.” The colors and textures you have on hand should inspire and inform your design!
Nuts, citrus fruits, cranberries, and even garlic make for an unfussy, festive table runner.
There’s no need to buy new place settings or linens for your holiday table. Bring out your family heirlooms (or your second hand store finds) to add a bit of history and charm to your look.
