Hautest Hosts, serving up some great hosting tips!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! We are so thankful for so many things this year and we can’t believe the time has come for one of our most favorite holidays!  Not only for the feast we are about to enjoy later this afternoon but for the purpose behind this holiday.  We are grateful and thankful every single day that we are healthy, happy and most of all surrounded by family and friends.  With that being said, we can’t not share some Hautest Hosts photo inspirations for your table design today!

This past year we had the opportunity to partner with Crate & Barrel, one of our favorite stores and Loverly! It was not only an awesome event to be part of, but we were able to meet some amazing vendors like Kara, who captured the event so beautifully, and Elysia, she and her team not only make the most beautiful desserts but they taste out of this world!

So for a successful party we recommend some great beverages, you don’t have to have a bar full of options, try to keep it to a few choices as to not overwhelm yourself. Some copper mugs go beautifully this time of year.

For the decor, floral can be placed down the center of the table like our farm table design photographed.  We kept the floral in the orange family to play off all the pretty rose gold flatware and serving pieces.   We made the floral come down the sides, this is a great accent if you don’t have seating on the ends of the table.  If you are making a larger more focal piece, work around the area you will be placing the piece.  In our bakery section, photographed above, we used drooping flowers, like these large tulips, to create a little bit of drama.  Always work with your color palette, dining room, serving pieces and seasonal decor. it makes for another great design layer.

Of course, delicious food, dessert and background music are a must!  Most of all, don’t forget to enjoy yourself, the friends and family that you are hosting, as a hautest hosts, and the time you get to spend with them.

Wishing you all a wonderful holiday and happy hosting!
