How to get your dining space ready for entertaining this holiday




This festive season is the perfect time to gather with loved ones around the dinner table. We know hosting for the holidays can be stressful, whether this is your first time hosting or this is your millionth time hosting, these tips will help you become a seasoned pro.


Sensory triggers: touch, smell, and sight


As you begin to get your dining room ready for guests you will want to consider the look and feel of the space.


Touch: Incorporate dining chairs in different materials and textures, like the Solana Dining Chair in Latte, Venice Suede in Antique Brushed Brass to add a sense of warmth and depth to your dining space.


Smell: Synonymous with the holidays, the inviting aromas of fresh pine, cinnamon, and baked goods can evoke a feeling of familiarity and warmth. Set the tone by placing some candles or scent diffusers around your entertaining spaces.

Sight: One of the first things you notice when walking into a space is the overall look of the room. Create visual interest in your dining room by adding candles in different heights, fruit, or fresh greenery to an expansive dining table, like the Eleanor Dining Table or a modern sideboard, like the Augustus Sideboard for an atmosphere of refined elegance.
