Your Holiday Side Table, 3 Ways

Lately, I've shared a few holiday table setting ideas that I put together a few weekends ago. In case you're just joining in, see my silver and cream setting, and my candy cane inspired setting from earlier this week.

These settings were staged for the Sheknows.com article, Setting an unforgettable holiday table -- and one tip I shared in the article was to go beyond just the table with your decor.  Sometimes we place so much focus on the table itself that we forget to highlight other features within the room. 

In my oppinion, it's an opportunity lost if you serve the meal, but forget the dessert ... and the same holds true when it comes to holiday entertaining.  Why set an amazingly festive table, just to ignore the dining room itself?

But, updating your dining room for seasonal entertaining doesn't need to be excessive.  A few accents here-and-there really go a long way -- and a perfect place to start is with a side table!  Here are the side table settings I put together to enhance the table settings for the article:

Setting 1:  Nature Inspired

Setting 2:  Home Sweet Home

Setting 3:  Pops of Red

So, what do you think?  Anyone else feeling pumped up about holiday decorating?  As excited as I am about it, I've still yet to finish decorating my own house...ugh.  All in due time!
