And tips for holiday home prepping
This year I’m so inspired by all the blue and white tablescapes I’ve seen that I’ve pulled together a mixture of blue and white holiday table settings and traditional holiday table settings for you. Due to expected shipping delays with COVID-19, it’s best to start right now ordering the decor you need for the holidays.

Let’s start with Thanksgiving. At the beginning of October, I posted lots of pretty blue and white pumpkins that you could start using to decorate for fall! This decor leads right into Thanksgiving and will work really well if you’re planning on using your blue and white china this year! The photo above is the perfect example of how to style a blue and white Thanksgiving table. I’ve also created a couple of style boards with shoppable links below that you can use to create your own display!
I love the idea of a boxwood wreath on the back of a chair or barstool, tied with. an adorable blue gingham bow!
If you’ve been collecting traditional Thanksgiving china, never fear! I have created a couple of style boards just for you! And the best part is… these are all Amazon finds!
Traditional thanksgiving china can look really pretty with warm fall colors and elegant golds used in your decor. Be sure to add in some greenery to keep it looking fresh and inviting! And how adorable are the pilgrim salt and pepper shakers? You can shop the pic using the links below the pic.
I love using magnolia leaves and wreaths for a warmer, traditional fall look.
Okay, now let’s get ready for Christmas! It’s never too early to start planning ahead and ordering, because so many of these items will sell out! With Christmas, you may have some special china that has been passed down in your family, or you may be building a collection of your own. Here are a few pieces you can add to it to get ready for the holidays, as well as some new items like these adorable ceramic Christmas trees! Be sure to have some pine garland that’s loose and thin for an easy table scape in the center of your table. You can weave this around the Christmas trees for an easy and elegant look! You might want to also add some gold candlesticks to bring it up a notch further!
I love these bow napkin rings, they bring in sweet personality to the holiday decor! I equally like the reindeer rings, and how cute are Mr. and Mrs. Claus?
Now that you have your table ready, let’s move on to the porch and the fireplace!
Porch and Deck
You can put topiaries on your front porch and string Christmas lights on them and add a red bow for a super cute look! You can also put some pine arrangements, holly, or poinsettas in your smaller planters. These chippendale planters are only $17! I have them and love them.
I really like using blue and white planters for any season, they become like a neutral. These stone and grecian urn planters are great to use also for a traditional look, and you can also buy the faux stone to get the look for less!
You can dress up your fireplace so quickly with these gorgeous gold fireplace screens. Here’s a couple looks at a designer room so you can get an idea of how these would look!
I love this peacock fireplace screen, it has a 1920s art deco vibe to it, or maybe Hollywood regency. If it were me, I’d probably choose a geometric gold screen for my hearth.
Be sure to get your mantel decor here! These Christmas trees sell out quick and they are so, so, so cute! I have them myself and can tell you–they’re adorable!
