Snazzy Sundays ~ Set the Holiday Table

The holidays are definitely here whether you're thinking about the major ones you participate in OR you think of all the ways that you think of having people over as we build up to the big days! Your dining room table becomes even more appropriate and should be dressed accordingly! We were inspired by Interior Design Expert and Founder of Dinette.com, Michael Craig (stay tuned to what you can do with your space by following @DinetteGuy who is familiar with maximizing spaces and seeking the luxe in glam in a number of ways! It's always about the details and ensuring that your personality comes through as well so that your eating space reflects your overall living space! Dinette.com is a great source to get a fabulous table within a number of styles that speak to you - just like the table above.

Just as Michael believes that you can jazz up your fave couch with fun pops of color with pillows, your table can get the same treatment with napkins - I'm loving the boho chic vibe of these napkins by Williams Sonoma! They are a great and easy way to make your table phenomenal and get napkin rings (loving the ones available at Barney's New York which plays to my keeping it natural but glammy sensibilities) that are interesting - you won't have to worry about how to fold your napkins and it's a great conversation piece. Michael believes that you can quickly luxe your table by, "adding a shiny bowl to your tabletop - nuts look great in a glitzy silver bowl". His belief here can also be said for choice in flatware and other serving platters and bowls. Whether you opt for silver, gold or bronze - it looks amazing! Horchow is our constant friend on Kitten Lounge and we love that they offer a number of options from one of our favorite designers, Michael Aram when it comes to serving your guests items. In addition, how can you not love the flatware that calls to the Bronze Age and is available at Anthropologie.

With all the meals that you will be hosting and the fact that some guests may definitely come more than once, make sure to add in candles - a fab suggestion by Michael as it sets the mood whether you're going for something romantic or simply want to awaken the senses to appropriately set the mood. Bring in your aesthetic but we don't need to say everything about ourselves at once - I love looking at pictures but even Michael says, "edit your framed pictures - too much is too much". Finally, lighting is everything and he suggests, "dimmers are key - mood lighting always helps control the ambiance".
