You’ve updated the décor in your indoor and outdoor space, but have you thought about what’s on trend for table settings? We’ve found some of the best holiday table settings for this year that are sure to stun your guests and create a memorable Christmas season.

Vintage Whimsical

This year we are seeing a ton of vintage trends from the Victorian era, so it comes to no surprise that it has made its way in the Christmas season. Pale greens and teals are all the rage this season, lending a hand to the vintage era when paired with fancy silverware.  This looks elegant when paired with lush greenery as a centerpiece. These Old Dutch International Antique Charger Plates would be stunning paired with pale green table linens.

Shades of Green

Though green is always a popular color during the Christmas season, it is particularly popular this year. Different hues of green paired together are particularly popular. This pairing creates a very retro feel to your table. Up the ante by adding some retro-inspired glassware and a patterned runner. This will help create a very monochromatic look. These Retro Stripe Wine Glasses are a perfect example of a retro accent to add to your table, while also infusing the green pallet.

Lots of Candlelight

Nothing helps set the mood for any special occasion like candlelight. The more candlelight the better! Luxurious candelabras and clustered candle vases help create a very warm, elegant table setting for your guests. If you decide to try this table setting, be sure to use more understated tableware, making your candlelight setting the focal point of your table.

Gold-Toned Cutlery 

Gold-toned cutlery has been at the top of the design trends for the past couple of years and it doesn’t seem like it’s budging anytime soon. Adding gold cutlery can help create a very glamorous mood to your dining table, especially paired with simple dinner wear, greenery and patterned table linens.

The Trendy, Mismatched Table

Is it just me, or did you read that and have a flashback to college days?  Back then, we dreamed about having a grown-up table setting where everything matched. This holiday season, however, mismatched chairs and table settings are on trend. A mismatched place setting that includes two different metalics such as gold and bronze would look stunning when paired with simple place settings. Lime Grey Striped Linen Cloth Napkins are a great way to mismatch your table setting without it looking too crazy. Try pairing these with mismatched chairs and simple dinnerware to make your table setting complete.

Now that you’re all grown up, if you’re worried about selling this particular trend to friends and family, start with just your chairs and keep your dinnerware simple.

So this Christmas go a little out of the box with mis-matched dinnerware and vintage inspiration. You’ll be sure to wow your guests this season, in a good way of course!
