42 Original Winter Table Décor Ideas
I think the most beautiful season is winter because everything is covered with snow and looks a charming snowy fairy-tale. Every snowflake has its own pattern; the snow hills sparkle in the sun. It’s time of some of our favorite kinds of sport skiing or snowboarding.
Winter will come soon, maybe the next month to some of places, so the question of winter table décor is urgent. Winter table is a romantic and charming thing and white and silver are, of course, the hottest colors for the table setting. Create a winter centerpiece of white flowers, candles and add some decorative snowflakes.
Use pinecones and Christmas motives for décor; put some fir tree decorations on the table, make a silver bow on the napkin. Tree branches and pine cones covered with white spray paint will be ideal – they would look frost dew.
The main decoration of the table will be white food – delicious snowy cupcakes and cakes and the food covered with coconut – amazing snowy fairy-tale of taste!
Colors And Prints
Choose a color scheme for your winter table, there are tons of ideas to try: white and silver, burgundy, red and white, gold and white, white and copper, and even monochromatic black and white with touches of greenery.
Bring prints to make the tablescape cooler – stripes and plaids are the best ideas for winter. Add metallic touches to make your tablescape sparkle: metallic ornaments, glasses, chargers, bells and elegant metal cutlery.

The Best Entryway Ideas of 2020 – Beautiful Foyer Designs and Furniture
You probably shouldn't judge a book by its cover—but we think it's fair to judge a home by its foyer.
Whether it's a grand house or a tiny nook by the door, your home's entry is the first thing visitors see when they step inside your house and the sight that welcomes you home every day.
So make it a good one! From high-drama to super-cozy, here are some of our favorite entryways from the pages of House Beautiful.
1 of 42
Add Animal Print
Designers love animal prints for stair runners—they're great at camouflaging muddy footprints, spills and other wear and tear from daily life. Garrow Kedigian used Stark's classic Antilocarpa for the stairs of his Montreal townhouse in homage to the region's fur-trading history.
2 of 42
Pretty Smart Storage
The coral skirted table isn't just striking—it also hides the family's clutter. “It has a lot of stuff stored under it on a shelf—baseball mitts and Wellington boots,” says designer Tom Scheerer, who worked with Quadrille to create the lattice wallcovering.
3 of 42
No one does blue and white quite Mark D. Sikes. He piled on the patterns in this Beverly Hills foyer, mixing China Seas wallpaper and textiles with Fermoie chandelier shades and an Elizabeth Eakins striped rug.
4 of 42
Architect James Carter and designer Jane Hawkins opted for a low-ceilinged entry with an up-and-down stair landing in this newly-built (but old-looking) country house. “When you enter, it feels a tiny cottage. We wanted to delay the drama,” says Carter.
5 of 42
A classic banana-leaf motif by Hinson announces you're in warm-weather territory as soon as you set foot in Lindsey Lane's Palm Beach bungalow.
6 of 42
A sisal rug as wallcovering? Why not, says Colleen Bashaw. “I didn’t want to cover up that great cement-tile floor, so that sparked the idea of putting sisal on the wall,” she explains. “[The contractor] mixed up a custom paste, applied it to the back of the rug, and hung it wallpaper
7 of 42
“We found this incredible carpet from 1stdibs and the blue-glass console from Avenue Road and just followed that thread,” says Philip Mitchell of the blue-and-white—but by no means nautical—palette.
8 of 42
Architect Ray Booth of McAlpine used a louvered screen in the entry of a 1961 Houston house to replace an old '60s room divider, which keeps the space separate from the dining room while still feeling airy.
9 of 42
A sweeping staircase makes a major statement in the entry of a Fifth Avenue duplex. Garrow Kedigian, a Paris flea market regular, found these neoclassical-style antique gilt stools during one of his shopping trips.
10 of 42
South African designer Mally Skok mixed pieces from her travels in the foyer of her Massachusetts home.
11 of 42
Keep it Elegant
Black-and-white marble entryway floors never go style—see this Georgian-style Atlanta home designed by Melanie Turner for proof.
12 of 42
Upgrade Your Drop Zone
Who says a kid-friendly foyer can't be ultra-luxe, too? This circular settee upholstered in fuschia velvet has become a New York family's landing pad for backpacks and sweaters. “The kids come through this hallway and toss everything on that ottoman. It really functions,” says designer Fawn Galli.
13 of 42
Small But Mighty
Even a corner can become a proper entry with the right accessories, says Sarah Bartholomew. For a Georgetown house where the front door opens right onto the living room, she explains, “I wanted to create a moment by the front door where you could pause and hang your coat, but it had to feel cohesive with the room. That’s why there’s a bird print over the entry console instead of a mirror.”
14 of 42
John Fondas' trick for a low-ceilinged space: top-to-bottom pattern—and an oversized round mirror. “Un horizontal mirrors, round ones don’t lower the ceiling,” he explains.
15 of 42
Embrace Wood Tones
Gideon Mendelson updated a new home's Neo-Elizabethan woodwork with a modern chandelier by Apparatus. Brass spindles on the staircase add a metallic touch.
16 of 42
Traditional woodwork in Juan Carretero's Catskills house is anything but staid thanks to lush green paint (Sherwin Williams' Country Squire) and black-and-white cement tile.
17 of 42
New England Redux
In a Maine summer house, classic New England style gets a bold update with millwork in Farrow & Ball's Red Earth. “We wanted to keep the feeling of an authentic old farmhouse while using rich and unexpected colors,” says designer Kari McCabe.
18 of 42
Create a Gallery
Janie Molster used a collection of black-and-white art to add a contemporary touch to the muted pinks and grays of her Richmond entryway.
19 of 42
For an example of shiplap done right, see how architect Ruard Veltman used horizontal paneling to create a shaker-inspired entryway that's rustic but not theme-y.
20 of 42
The checkered floors in Tom Scheerer's Maine house are actually made of linoleum—they're durable and lend a lived-in look, he says.
21 of 42
Barrie Benson used colorful upholstery to bring new life to a vintage settee.
22 of 42
A Dutch door lends plenty of old-school appeal to the entry of Wendy Wurtzburger and Chris Bentley’s Philadelphia home.
23 of 42
Palm Beach Prep
For a client's Palm Beach house, Caroline Rafferty painted on a faux stair runner in pale pink and green—no worries about sandy footprints on carpet.
24 of 42
King of color Miles Redd went all-out in this Manhattan foyer, mixing bold tones and a black-and-white floor. “The wife is super-stylish, and she wanted it to feel an opium den where Yves Saint Laurent had just left the room,” he says.
25 of 42
Never one to shy away from color, Nick Olsen drenched a Manhattan entry (which also triples as a dining area and library) in glossy lipstick red.
26 of 42
A dramatic staircase, zebra-print rug and checkered marble floor make this black-and-white foyer designed by Mary McGee feel it's been plucked right an old Hollywood mansion.
27 of 42
Foyers don't always have to be practical, says Nick Olsen, who combined graphic black-and-white wallcovering, pediment-topped mirrored niches and a striking lime green ceiling in one New York apartment. “Those are first-impression spaces—more decorative than functional—so why not play that up?” he asks.
28 of 42
Tactile elements—a teak mirror, sheepskin rugs—make the foyer of a Colorado log home decorated by Thom Filicia feel extra-cozy.
29 of 42
Show Off Your Art
“An entry should set the tone for a house. I wanted mine to say, 'This house is about color, art, and collecting,'” explains Los Angeles-based Molly Luetkemeyer of her gallery- foyer.
30 of 42
From the trellis-covered walls to the palm frond chandelier, this foyer in the Bahamas “definitely has a fantasy element, a sense of theater, a stage set,” says Amanda Lindroth. “You know you’ve been transported to the tropical splendor of a resort!”
Fall Dining Table Decor Ideas
This post for fall dining table decor ideas contains affiliate links. I make a small portion when these links are used, at no additional cost to you.
My fall dining table is a bit on the au naturel side this year. The majority of the items used were from the produce department at the store…and my backyard. Hoping you enjoy these simple fall dining table decor ideas.
This week, I've partnered with loads of my favorite home decor bloggers in a lovely fall blog hop. I signed up for the fall dining table decor ideas portion of the hop…I'm delighted to share my dining room (in all her autumnal glory) with you today. Several others are also sharing their beautiful fall tablescapes, too. Check it all out below.
I have all of my friends' links to their fall ideas at the end of this post…there are truly some fantastic ideas you can grab for your own home this season in this week's blog hop.
I host Thanksgiving every year for my side of the family. It's the time of year that I try to make our home as welcoming as possible. I love the art of hospitality and creating a memorable Thanksgiving, year after year. This year will be a tough one. As many of you know, we unexpectedly lost my mother in June…
she was gone within minutes of having a massive stroke. It was a rough summer. We're still all trying to find that new normal, and honestly, we're dreading the holidays without her. My dad and I have been working on Thanksgiving plans, already, though…we're early-bird planners.
We want to use all of her favorite things around the table this year: her glasses, her china, her flatware…everything.
These fall dining table decor ideas have a lot of her items incorporated. The wheat dishes belonged to her late brother. The crystal was her absolute favorite…
it is a Waterford pattern that has been in our family for years. She loved it and used it at every special occasion she could (if these glasses could talk, y'all).
The flatware I used today is my own, but my dad plans to bring over my mom's set before Thanksgiving.
I wanted to put together a simple tablescape playing off of the china I used…so we went with a *mostly* natural theme. It was great for the budget, too.
Besides the natural elements, I used wrapping paper as a base for the entire tablescape. I grabbed these polka dotted rolls at my Tuesday Morning.
After the meal, I just toss it and my table is pretty much clean from any spills. I laid my reversible table runner that I made last year in this post on top of the wrapping paper for extra texture.
The fall side of the runner reads Gather Together.
To continue the polka dot theme, I grabbed some vases from Dollar Tree and jazzed them up with vinyl dots I cut out on my Silhouette Cameo.
Check out how this tablescape came together in the video I created below:
Besides the wrapping paper, my reversible table runner, and the polka dot vases (which I'm using here as hurricanes with candles), I also grabbed the smaller gold patterned votives at the Dollar Tree, too. The wrapping paper kind of set the tone for a gold-toned table. I love how this made everything glow a bit. The rims of the wheat china pieces also have gold, so it all ties together well.
The greenery is straight my backyard. In the late summer/early fall, the massive vine that smothers our chain link fence has the most beautiful red berries that bud.
To be clear, I'm 99% sure they're poisonous, but we no longer have little kids around our Thanksgiving table, so I'm not worried about anyone devouring the poisonous centerpiece anytime soon. But, if you do have littles, use caution with random backyard berries. I just went out and cut various lengths of the vine.
I've had this tablescape in place for over a week and the berries still look wonderful, so this can definitely be put together a day or two before you need your centerpiece.
After I placed the greenery around the candles, I used both Fuji and Granny Smith Apples all over the place. I used real apples…sticking to the natural theme.
I added in the little beaded corn cobs for some extra gold/yellow…to coordinate with the china. While they're not real, I do the texture the beads add…
they were also from Dollar Tree (this table definitely stayed in budget!).
I just love a glowing centerpiece…
especially this time of the year.
One investment I made eons ago (seriously, I was 22 when I bought these) was in these wooden chargers you can see under my plates. I grabbed them at Pier One. I was just college, not married, but I loved having people over to my condo for dinner all the time.
I bought between 2-4 chargers a month on my tight budget…eventually amassing over a dozen of them. I still have them and use them constantly. They clean up nicely with furniture polish.
I found some super similar ones on Amazon here, if you're in the market for a nice set of chargers.
It's hard to believe there isn't a single pumpkin on the table this year.
Even with the candles all aglow, the colors of the table and room look so different in here at different times of the day.
I also added some new, heavier drapes in here for fall and winter (my previous drapes were super summery and thin). I grabbed these velvet panels on Amazon here (I bought Aqua Mist).
I mentioned this vintage set of china on my Instagram over the weekend. It belonged to my late uncle (my mother's brother). It's so fallish that we only use it a few times of the year. But whenever anyone sits down at the table, they exclaim, “wheat!”.
And as I mentioned, my mother's Waterford is kind of the star of the table, at least in my eyes. Knowing how much she loved these pieces makes them even more special to use. Cheers!

42 Stunning Banquet Tables for Your Reception
Get All of the Best Wedding Reception Ideas
Banquets have a long and rich history of serving as celebratory gatherings, and the intimate, festive vibe they embrace has been carried on through weddings.
Banquet-style seating can feel regal or rustic, and the long, sprawling tables make great foundations for seamless décor.
Though round tables have their benefits—they're a reception classic and make grouping guests easy—rectangular arrangements invite a more familial feel, while looking exceptionally romantic.
Smaller weddings can embrace the style to keep everyone together, while larger weddings can optimize space with rows set up throughout the venue. And even if you're not fully committed to banquet-style seating, a long head table is a big-day favorite at wedding receptions. For long-table inspiration, look no further than these arrangements from real weddings.

Decorate with Pumpkins: Select light and bright table decor such as white pumpkins to create a beautiful Thanksgiving arrangement that your guests will love.
Metallic Table Runner: Infuse your table with holiday glitter by adding a touch of class with gold. Start with adding some natural texture with a stunning burlap table runner. Decorate with pumpkins, branches and pinecones (all spray painted gold), creating a modern and fresh aesthetic with rustic nuances.
Decorative Thanksgiving Table: Add natural touches to your holiday table decor with bittersweet, leaves and gourds.
Begin with a wooden plank in the center of your table, add pillar candles in fall-inspired hues or scented candles of pumpkin spice, apple pie, cinnamon, vanilla, etc. Encircle the centerpiece with gourds, dried berries and vines.
Add place settings in fall colors, topped with linen napkins wrapped with ribbon and dried leaves.
Twig Table Runner: Add organic materials to your table with a stunning table runner comprised of twigs. Gather twigs from your yard or purchase them from a craft store. This runner is easy to assemble, get the step-by-step instructions here.
Leafy Centerpiece: Fill a glass jar with fall turned leaves to create an inexpensive centerpiece for your table.
String leaves together and hang them from your chandelier above your dining table for an interesting visual effect.
Fill a tray with fall items such as pinecones, potpourri with a harvest scent, pillar candles and a vase filled with flowers or dried leaves. This can easily be moved the way if additional space is needed and can be easily changed if you have a new idea!
Fill a glass vase with dried peas, red kidney beans and corn kernels for a fresh and innovative display. Top with a candle in a harvest color and tie a fresh piece of twine into a ribbon for a finished effect that is very natural.
Decorate an Outdoor Table: If you live in a warmer climate, decorate an outdoor table for Thanksgiving. Use natural items such as wood, burlap, twigs, berries, pinecones and of course pumpkins!
Candle Centerpiece: Candles are a classic way to set the mood at your dinner table, adding a lot of holiday cheer. Try grouping 15 or more pillar candles at varying heights on a plate or tray (or a piece of wood as it shows in the image above) in the center of the table.
The wood in the image above adds some rusticity to the center arrangement. Use unscented candles at your table when food is being served, but place scented candles throughout your home to create a nice ambiance and set a holiday mood.
Try scents of cinnamon, apple spice, pumpkin and even sandalwood.
Fill a pumpkin with fresh fall-inspired flowers such as mums and berries.
Creative Idea for Cutlery: A clear glass mason jar filled with candy corn can make a nice holiday display to place your cutlery on the table for guests.

This table reflects a casual and warm feel with a modern twist. A mix of colors in chocolates, soft taupes and birch contrast nicely with a white tablecloth.
Innovative Candle Display: Set tapered candles into a unique candleholder of small white pumpkins. If you want permanent candleholders, DIY some faux pumpkins by hot glueing silk flowers to the tops.
Non-Traditional Centerpiece: Create a non-traditional holiday display with some festive bright pops of color in pink. Paint pumpkins in various shades of pink and a metallic gold for some contrast. Hollow out the insides to add fresh flowers and paint the stems of the pink pumpkins in glitter gold. Display your pumpkins on candle holders of various heights.
