The holidays have finally arrived, so now is the time to start preparing your festive tablescape design and meal. You’ll soon find yourself busy with putting together a dinner menu and confirming who’s all coming over – even if it’s just the people you live with. 😉
I know how stressful the holiday season can get, especially for those planning it. So, if you just realized you don’t have a clue on how to decorate your holiday table this year, you’re in the right place. I’ve turned to Taylor of Olive and Pop to see how she is approaching the holidays and how she can help inspire you for your holiday tablescape decor project!

Festive Holiday Tablescape Styling Tips to Try this Season
Add Some Metallic Touches
Using pieces with unique textural finishes adds visual interest and charm.
Align Your Design With Your Space
For holiday decor, it is still so important to match the aesthetic of the home to create a cohesive design. Yes, you may be adding a Santa sculpture to your space, but those sculptures should look like they could fit the home all year long. – Taylor

Dare to Be Bold
Do not be afraid to opt for unforgettable statement-pieces for a truly unique holiday tabletop styling, from oversized sculptures to layers of scattered floral arrangements.
Be Playful With Your Decor
Have fun with your holiday tablescapes and give your guests something to talk about with quirky elements that will make your take on holiday styling unique to you. Check out the full Silver & Sage Tablescape by Olive and Pop: HERE.

Bring in Natural Elements
Adding small amounts of natural elements adds warmth without appearing too earthy.
A simple set of wooden chargers, mini wooden vases with fresh cranberries or candied nuts, and a few oversized pine cones are the perfect addition to any tablescape. Check out the full Classic Christmas Tablescape by Olive and Pop: HERE.
Less is More Modern
There’s no need to go overboard with your holiday decor. Most designers will agree that the more minimal, the more modern your tablescape will feel. One of the best holiday tabletop styling tips is that sometimes all it takes is a few simple candlesticks and a layered floral or greenery arrangement.
Repurpose What You Have
As Taylor from Olive And Pop says, “Start with what you already own! There’s no need to reinvent the wheel for every holiday. You probably already own a set of beautiful flatware or classic glassware, use that as your starting point and work from there.”
