Merry Monday: Holiday Tables

I wanted to start this week with a bang by showcasing some of the amazing creativity that's been happening around the blogosphere! And most importantly, I want to make sure you all don't miss any of it! I wish there was time to spotlight each one of these on their own, because there is so much goodness to learn from each one, but there just isn't time. I picked each of these for specific reasons... SO, grab your coffee (or whatever your drink of choice is!), sit back and scroll through some great inspiration for your holiday tables. If you aren't familiar with any of these party stylists, I encourage you to spend some time on their blogs for great ideas, motivation or just plain eye candy!

Inspired by The Nutcracker, this dreamy fantasy-scape was created by Kate Landers Events for a young girl's party. This one photo doesn't serve the party justice. The table is dressed with a three-tiered, ruffled table covering and there is a complementing table for the lucky party girls. Click here to see the meticulous details.

A bold, red background certainly sets the stage for this festive dessert table done by Anders Ruff. When using a strong background, keep your table accents simple or plain, as done here with the solid colored platform boxes and confections. All the printables are designed by Anders Ruff and can be purchased in their etsy shop accessible from their blog here.

This "Cocktails and Cheers" table is a great example of how just a few accessories can really dress up your table. Decor such as the colorful, felt garland, the trim around the candle holders, and ornaments adorning the spoons are inexpensive and easy to execute. Designed by Celebrations at Home, their blog offers great inspiration with designs you can use for your own "real life" parties. Jump to their blog here.

I love the elegance of this simple Parisian-styled table that was done for an open house by Icing Designs. I love the use of ribbon as a backdrop. Use ornaments as done here, faux crystals or pinecones for your table. Take advantage of all the glittery and pretty ornaments and decorations that are available in stores now for the holidays. The banner was also done by Icing Designs. They have fabulous handcrafted paper goods. Visit Icing Designs here.
This is a great example of how you can use candy to build your color palette. And I love the fullness and texture of the paper snowflakes above. Done by The Party Dress (aka The Well Heeled Hostess), it's a perfect table appealing to both kids and adults. All labels were done by The Well Heeled Hostess too, and can be purchased via their site. Visit The Party Dress here.

Finally, I happened to find this one as I was dabbling online. It's kid-friendly, yet still sophisticated. Photo source here.

Whew! If that doesn't get you in the holiday spirit, I don't know what will!! Until tomorrow-cheers!
