While I know most of us won’t be celebrating Easter in the traditional way this year, there’s no reason we can’t make the day feel special! I think it’s even more important during these unprecedented times to keep our traditions going. They ground us, make us feel more normal, and increase our connectedness.
Even as the world has changed dramatically in just a few weeks, some things remain the same. Our need to connect. To break bread together. So though we may not be able to have the dinner parties or have friends over the way we usually would, we can (and should) still celebrate together!
Every year I like to create a romantic (but easy!) Valentine’s Day table setting. You see, my husband and I never go out on Valentine’s Day. In fact, I would guess that we haven’t actually gone out on that date in about 15 years!
We found that it was always crowded and the service was incredibly slow. So our solution has been to spend a romantic evening at home enjoying a delicious meal and a nice bottle of wine! (Presents aren’t frowned upon either 😉 )
I’m so excited to be joining some blogging friends for one of my favorite posts of the year! Today’s Styled + Set Holiday Tour is hosted by my friend Lory from Designthusiasm, and has 12 bloggers sharing their holiday tables and entertaining ideas!
I love doing holiday tables, and today I’m excited to be sharing another one with you! Last week I did my first one of the season in gold and green, and I was so happy with the way it turned out. But of course, since I don’t want to bore all of you I wanted this one to feel very different. And it definitely does!
This is truly the season where I’m in my element. I love hosting dinners, parties and get togethers, especially at this time of year. Everything feels extra festive and it’s such a special time to create memories with those we love.
So today I’m sharing my first holiday table setting of the season! I always host Christmas, so for me, there is a practical reason to be planning and styling in preparation for the holidays. But, whether you host a dinner party, a casual holiday event like a tree-trimming party, Hanukkah, Christmas Eve dinner, or something else, this table setting is perfect and easily adaptable!
