Creating the perfect tablescape is an art form. Learn the ropes with interior designer Diana Farberov's tips, and browse through her favorite Etsy finds to help you master your holiday tablescape this year.
November naturally lends itself well to hosting, and Etsy is a perfect one-stop shop for a great host! You can find a wide range of tableware, accessories, and even specialty food items on the platform to turn even the most casual of get-togethers into a memorable evening. My secret to tablescaping is to 1) mix vintage pieces with handmade items for a truly unique setting and 2) collect pieces you will love for many years to come. I hope the items below inspire you to gather a group of your nearest and dearest, set a beautiful table, and celebrate life (even beyond the holiday season). Happy hosting!
You could have nothing else on your table, and this tablecloth will automatically impress your guests. It speaks for itself with a playful design but is still subtle and over-laying pieces will only enhance its charm.
Everyone should own a set of special but functional glassware. For a night to remember, add these Mid-Century Coupes to your festivities! Great for those cocktail recipes you’ve wanted to try or just a bottle of bubbly.
A good collection of vases can go a long way in your home. Place a piece like this in the center of your table, and it’ll set the scene even if left empty. Add a few eucalyptus branches, and you have a gorgeous centerpiece ready for guests to admire.
A perfect complement to the floral-painted taper candles I have later in this round-up, these block-printed napkins feature a fine floral design while still being a functional addition to your tablescape. Even the simplest Ikea plates will feel sophisticated with nice napkins placed alongside them.
An easy entertaining tip is to start your gathering with a charcuterie board. They can be prepared ahead of time and give your guests something to enjoy while everyone gathers and dinner is ready. This red marble option is an excellent quality and natural material that will look lovely at the center of your table or kitchen counter.
If you want napkins that feel minimal but still bring a touch of color and decor to your table, these colorful wavy border options are a great choice. I recommend getting a mix of colors so each guest can feel like they have a special piece for their seat.
Candle holders are one of the easiest ways to add vintage decor to your space. They are available in hundreds of different styles and bring a layer of history and romance to the environment. This specific piece works beautifully in a modern home, adding a touch of decorative flair but also can enhance a more traditional home with its shape and swirl motifs.
Dress up any dish with a few edible flowers! They can be used to decorate a cheese board, add the final touch to a cocktail, or garnish a cake. An easy way to add an elevated touch to the food on your table.
Candles instantly set a mood, so why not dress up your table with these beautiful hand-painted tapers? The detailed flowers are a lovely way to bring subtle touches of colors and also make great gifts for guests to remember the evening!
These black and white striped vases are available in several sizes so you can stock up or grow your collection over time and spread them across your table for a complete and curated look. The striped pattern gives them a graphic feel while still remaining neutral enough to match the other pieces in your space.
