Holiday dinner table

We take Christmas Eve very seriously over here. Growing up for me, Christmas Eve was just spent watching movies and going to church at night. But in Michaels family, Christmas Eve was when they celebrated. It worked out great because we spend eve with his family and day with mine. Since we moved into our apartment three years ago, we’ve been playing hosts. We spend the day preparing a big Italian meal, desserts and cleaning up. I’m always so stressed and trying to make the table look nice, too! (Something I really enjoy!) This year I decided to set it early so we could enjoy it longer and give us one less thing to worry about day of.

For the centerpiece, I bought these reindeer candle stick holders from Macy’s. How cute are they?! I also reused this old mason jar filled with vintage ornaments from the past few years. We picked some fresh holly from Michaels dads house and added some twinkle lights as well.

Each setting has gold charger plates and napkins from Target as well as china from Michaels childhood. Poppers are a big tradition for them too so I added one to each setting. I made the napkin rings with some wired leaves from the craft store.

We we had so many burlap table runners from our wedding that I pull out a fresh new one each year. I hot glued some ribbon from the craft store to edges.

Do you host for the holidays? Do you enjoy setting a dinner table?
