Holiday inspired tablescape with The•Company•Store

The things you are passionate about are not random, they are your calling. -Fabienne Fredrickson

The holiday season…is there anything more magical and festive? From Bing Crosby’s holiday music, to warm hot chocolate, wood fires, the smell of sugar cookies, hot soup, warm blankets, and a decorated tree…it truly brings so much joy and comfort to me every year when the holiday season comes around. I wanted to share with you all how easy and fun it can be to prepare a beautiful tablescape for your friends and family this year. Whether your hosting a small and intimate get-together or having a few girlfriends over, The Company Store has everything you need and more!

One thing I’ve really been exploring this year are my passions; things that inspire me, challenge me, and things I feel called to that bring great purpose and connection to my personal life as well as my families lives. Hospitality has always been a part of who I am, engrained and stamped upon my heart with great intention and purpose.

For me hospitality is the art of deep connection, laughter, and acceptance. When I host, I am not inviting them over as a guest but rather a friend, someone that will feel a part of my family; accepted and heard. My goal is to create a space that is welcoming and fully inspired by all of my favorite things. My goal is not to make the tastiest most delicious meal (although that’s a bonus;)) but rather to connect, accept, and be intentional about forming relationships that are purposeful around my table.

I was really inspired to keep this tablescape warm, neutral, earthy, and simple. I love the pops of greens, the touches of gold and silver metal, and the intricate details of the leaf napkin rings. The first thing I focused on to achieve this look was color choice! Here I have white, green, pops of red, gold and silver. The second thing I did was create the centerpiece of the table by taking simple holiday greens and clipping them into the appropriate length to be placed in various sized glass vases. I added gold berries my grandmother found to bring out the greens even more. When you decide on your colors and themes, you’ve already done the hardest part! From there you get to be creative and put together something that represents your style and aesthetic. Creating this space that just calls for glasses of deep red wine, crusty bread, and delicious homemade soup. Your friends will be cozy, and surrounded by the view and ambience you’ve created.
