It’s your turn to host a holiday dinner party.  You’ve invited your closest friends, planned an exquisite dinner menu, and stocked up your bar with everyone’s favorite drinks – your holiday party is nearly ready! There’s just one thing missing – the perfect tablescape.

With holiday dinner parties already underway, we’ve teamed up with Acqualina’s Catering and Events Manager, Christine Perez, to share her expert opinion on how to make your table sparkle with holiday cheer.

I always love taking out the beautiful china during this time of year. Clean crisp whites paired with gold metallic accents go a long way in making your table feel glamorous.

Create an interesting and festive tablescape by layering different wintery textures on top of one another. Pair a burlap runner with a fur seat cushion and mix it up with casual checkered napkins for contrast. Using oversized goblets for the glassware as well as unusual flatware makes the final statement for each place setting.

The centerpieces are the focal points of the table, so I like to be adventurous. Lately, I’ve been into this new trend of using antlers, pine cones and wood accents in the décor to give the entire table a whimsical woodlands feel. Adding numerous candles on different leveled pedestals will make everything on the table twinkle and shine putting all your guests in the holiday spirit.
