Holiday memories often originate around a beautifully set table, filled with warm and delicious food. Whether you’re hosting an intimate holiday dinner with a special someone, or a feast for several friends and family, the holiday table setting is the centerpiece of the festivities. Setting the table for the perfect holiday meal is an important job, and we’ve compiled some simple tips and ideas to help you set a beautiful holiday table this year.

Before you set the table, first ensure that you have the right table to suit your lifestyle and space. Xtraroom designs stylish, space-saving furniture that transforms with your needs. The Delphinus Table with Buffet expands to seat from two to 12 people, with four leaves for expansion options. The table is available in warm walnut, contemporary anthracite, or cool white. Best of all, the entire table fits seamlessly into the matching buffet, included with the table. The chic Delphinus Chrome Chairs are sold separately and also fit inside the buffet for easy storage.


Once you have the ideal table, it’s time to focus on accessorizing the table for your holiday entertaining needs. This time of year, I love incorporating fresh greenery into my holiday table setting. Mix scraps of pine, fir and spruce with large pine cones and silver ornaments in an oversized bowl, like this one from Crate & Barrel. To collect scraps of greenery, I recommend visiting your local Christmas tree farm. Recently, my local Christmas tree farm gave me a bag of mixed greens for $10. If you’d like to take your centerpiece to the next level, weave buffalo check ribbon throughout your centerpiece, and accent around the centerpiece with mercury glass votive candles.


While this centerpiece is perfect to leave on your table or buffet throughout the holiday season, it can also be expanded to accommodate a large seated holiday feast. Simply tuck a fresh sprig of greenery into buffalo check napkins at each place setting and personalize your seating arrangement with these reusable chalkboard place cards.  You can thank us later when your guests shower you with compliments!

When it comes to decorating your holiday table, a little creativity goes a long way. We can’t wait to see how you set your Delphinus Table with Buffet from Xtraroom this holiday season. Please share your creativity with us on Instagram.

Happy Holidays from your friends at Xtraroom!
