As the holidays quickly approach, getting your dinner table set (and styled) will certainly be on your to-do list. If you’re looking for a fresh twist on a time-old tradition, look no further. Sarah Ashley Schiear, of Salt House, shares her simple tips on decorating your tabletop from fork to plate — and more. And best of all? It’s affordable…sleek…and can be used any time and any season. (So no need to buy all new things you’ll only use once or twice a year).

If Sarah and her table look familiar, it’s because we toured her beautiful home → Sarah’s Small & Stylish Brooklyn Apartment.

Her modern, but sophisticated, take on a holiday table setting incorporates black dinnerware with copper touches. She also adds greenery throughout the table, and even includes it on the place settings themselves. To complete the look, candles light the table, making the dining experience merry and bright.

The best part? This sophisticated, modern tabletop will work any time of year!
