Inspiration for Styling a Holiday Dinner Table


Don’t let the early darkness get you down! It’s time to light up the season. Whether you are hosting a small gathering with friends or preparing a meal for your family, the tablescape makes the holiday meal complete and memorable. The lights and decorations make this time of year cheerful and bright and we want to share some inspiration on how to transform your dinner table.

One of the most anticipated elements of the holiday season is sitting around the table, and sharing a special meal. Some say it’s Mom’s secret recipe stuffing, or pulling out Grandma’s silverware, but this experience is more than just the food, it’s the heartwarming tablescape that brings it all together.

It begins with the decorative tablecloth to set the stage for this holiday presentation. Upon this table, you will share unforgettable holiday moments. Start with the elements that make a meal happen, the dinner plates, side plates, silverware, and glassware. It’s pretty and practical, but it needs the decorative napkins, placemats, garland with lights, and various ornaments that look almost good enough to eat. It’s like a scene out of a holiday movie.

As much as this vision is magical and fresh, acquiring this perfect setting will take some effort. Instead of driving all over the city in the dreaded holiday traffic, make it simple with one stop at St. Vital Centre. With a variety of retailers, you can choose your tablescape items to fit within your budget. Your only effort should be setting it up, so let St. Vital Centre help you bring it all together.
