Hosts November Design Edition | Festive Tablescaping: Crafting Collective Style for Memorable Holiday Events

As the leaves transform into fiery works of art that begins to fall, and the air wraps you in a cozy hug leaving puffs of breath to linger, the saying, “Tis’ the season” comes to mind. You know the one, the holiday event season. Tables adorned with pumpkins and cornucopias and rich dark autumn hues for Thanksgiving, Friendsgiving, and get togethers in November. Tables embellished with blue and silver accents, shimmering like the starry night sky with gleaming menorahs and joyous traditions for Hanukkah in early December.  Trees and tablescapes trimmed with twinkling lights and colorful ornaments, wreaths, candles, classic reds and greens with touches of gold and silver for Christmas, and everything and every color in-between. In this whimsical wonderland where tinsel is the currency and sleigh bells double as background music, ’tis the season to bring the sparkle to your events. Welcome to the jolly journey of ‘Festive Tablescaping: Making Holiday Magic for Your Events with Collective Style.’ It’s the time of year when we deck the halls, and your tables – for a festive facelift. Let the merry madness begin!


Hold on to your gravy boats! Creating an enchanting tablescape is like being the head chef of your own feast, only with fewer potatoes to peel. From centerpieces that steal the show to themed decor that says, “Yes, I’m festive, and I’m proud of it,” your table is about to become the star of your event.

Picture this: an autumn event table so beautifully curated, it’s like a harvest cornucopia for the eyes. Festive tablescaping isn’t just about arranging napkins; it’s about crafting a tapestry that tells the story of gratitude, warmth, and a sprinkle of cheekiness. It’s the stuffing in your event turkey, if you will. Now, let’s talk about collective style—the extra dollop of cranberry sauce on your Thanksgiving plate. It’s the magic that happens when everyone contributes a piece of their personality to the table. Think of it as a potluck of aesthetics, where mismatched becomes the new harmonious, and no one has to pretend they like the same shade of pumpkin orange.
