Let it Sparkle!

This holiday tablescape is all about embracing of elevated elegance. And for that, the key is shimmer and shine! Enter our Dazzle Placemats in gold and silver. These luxury holiday placemats strike just the right balance of glitter and subtlety.

Want your very own Winter Wonderland? Use a crisp, white tablecloth to keep the look clean but sparkly! Scatter gold and silver metallic snowflakes and pinecones across the table. Style with our Star Napkin Rings or Brilliant Napkin Rings.

Wishing for winter whimsy? Channel the mystery of a midnight sleighride with our Constellation Napkin Rings; then add gold and silver stars around each place setting. However you choose to style them, these handbeaded placemats create a magical, memorable moment around a holiday table. Talk about making the season bright!

All About the Ornaments!

Why should the tree have all the fun? Your tablescape should be decorated too! This festive tablescape leans into the decorative accents that make your season sparkle. Go for blush poinsettias, dark pink cranberries, and holly. Nuts for the Nutcracker? Try miniature dolls in white and gold. Stage a mini-crêche in tiny topiary figures. If it speaks to you, it will make your holiday table sing!

A great way to bring it all together and make sure that your table decorations form a centerpiece is to use decorative mats as a base. Line up our Celebration Decorative Mats or Speckle Decorative Mats across the table to form a table runner. The metallic  shimmer of these decorative mats allows them to seamlessly blend with your other table decor pieces, while providing gorgeous glow to your festive tablescape. 

You can also use these 12″ mats as chargers for a table teeming with guests. These are truly the gifts that keep on giving!

It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas! What do you see when Bing belts out that old song we oddly know all the words to? Why not embrace a piece of that vintage vibe, but give it a right-now remake?

Our third holiday tablescape is an invitation to Candy Land! Dress you table with our lacquer red and white Circus Placemats. Their peppermint perfection turns your table into a winter playground. Pair with our Horn Napkin Rings in red to double down on the fun.

Prefer your sugar a bit more refined? Look no further than our Lacquer Stripe Placemats in red and white. Style with our coordinating Lacquer Stripe Napkin Rings and Coasters. Want one more tasty touch? Sprinkle miniature candy canes and peppermints around your centerpiece. Or use them as place card holders. Such a sweet way to celebrate!

Home (Away from Home?) For The Holidays

With everyone so spread out nowadays, we often have to meet somewhere in the middle. This may make it hard for the festivities to feel like home. This holiday look is about choosing pieces that evoke tradition, even in new places.

Enter the Return to Red. Embrace the traditional hue that rules the Yule with our Sparkle Placemats in red and coordinating Napkin Rings. With sumptuous glass beads and contrasting golden bands, these festive placemats bring you back to the celebrations you used to love. Whether you’re on the slopes or on the beach, you’ll have a classic base.

Now add your own unique touches! Lean into laidback with decorated gingerbread people. Pair local greenery with white tea lights for a more classic take. And remember, wherever you are, home is where the love is.

We’ve loved gracing your homes this year. So Happy Holidays from our Von Gern Home to yours!
