To be honest, this Valentine’s Day tablescape is all about yesterday’s cloche centerpiece. It’s literally my favorite one that Sarah has ever done and really captures everything that I want our Valentine’s Day tablescape for two to reflect. While traveling through Amsterdam a few years ago, I became obsessed with this painting and have always wanted to translate it somehow into a blog post. Sarah indulged me in my unexpected color palette, so I pulled dinnerware and glassware to complement it, rather than detract. This simple tablescape is really all about the centerpiece.
After styling an over-the-top, more-is-more tablescape for Thanksgiving, I felt drawn to a more pared down vibe for my Christmas setting. More than anything, I wanted my holiday tablescape to feel casual. To achieve this, I simplified the settings and layered together pieces to create a warm and inviting table with some major hygge, Scandinavian vibes.
It’s time for the main event: our Thanksgiving tablescape! Ever since chatting with Sarah about the centerpiece and how it was inspired by our cheese board, all I could think about was incorporating shades of mauve, blush, and rose into the table settings for my Thanksgiving spread. More than anything, I wanted to surprise my guests with a totally unexpected, whimsical table this year!

I think we’ve all been there: you don’t want to eat lunch on Thanksgiving day because you’ve gotta save room in your tummy for the main event… but you’re hungry! As a hostess, this is always a challenge for me, one that I solve by laying out a lighter cheese board for my guests to snack on until dinner is served. To make this appetizer truly light, I like to use delicious 34 Degrees crackers. If you’re not familiar with this brand, they are awesome. Basically, 34 Degrees crackers are a lighter, crispier, all-natural version of a cracker and serve as an excellent platform for some of my faaavorite cheeses.
Ever since launching our small space entertaining series, I’ve been patiently waiting to style a Halloween tablescape and it is finally time! I knew for this one I wanted the vibe to be all-black with a range of really luxurious, rich textures. After Sarah created this sophisticated centerpiece (without a single pumpkin), I knew I wanted to keep things pretty simple for the tabletop.
Living in the Pacific Northwest is definitely my favorite. Every time I venture into our gorgeous forests, I can’t help but be inspired. This month’s tablescape is inspired by the forest floor of the PNW — full of foraged foliage (did you see yesterday’s centerpiece tutorial??), ferns, and many, many shades of earthy green. With a setting of rumpled, layered linen, the vibe is casual, pretty, and unexpectedly romantic.
