Dressing the table for a holiday dinner, be it with friends or family, is a great opportunity to get creative and have a little fun. I love setting the table with a few unexpected elements or creating a theme to play off of. Here is a little inspiration to get you started.

1. Glittery ornaments make for festive holiday placeholders.

2. A monochrome palette with a touch of gold in the form of a pumpkin makes for a glam tablescape.

3. Unbleached linen and mini rosemary wreaths for an organic place setting.

4. Cinnamon sticks and tree trimmings bound together with twine make good use of items you likely have on hand.

5. A polka dot motif and pinecone placeholder are a cheery combination.
