Holiday table setting from Bunny Williams and Eddie Ross

When it’s time for holiday hosting, it’s all about the mix! Combining different patterns is what makes a table fun, festive, and interesting for your guests. We know that as you collect different entertaining pieces, you’ll be using those in different ways each time you set the table, and that’s what we love! No one does the mix better than Modern Mix author Eddie Ross and our own favorite Bunny Williams, which is why we’re so thrilled to share this gorgeous table with you today. On Christmas Eve!

Below Eddie Ross walks you through his tips for setting a stylish Holiday table.

The holidays are nearly here, and we’re helping you get ready for a busy season of entertaining! We love the ceremonial feel of taking out your favorite china pieces at the start of this festive season — whether that’s your holiday pattern, your grandmother’s china, your wedding pieces, or your favorite everyday collection. Traditions are an important part of what makes this time of year special, but we also love the idea of picking a few new pieces to complement your tried and true entertaining favorites.

We couldn’t wait to see how she created an inviting home that reflects her Southern roots.

We’re Into: Personalized Barware

By |Decorating, Entertaining, Tabletop, Tips & Ideas|0 Comments

Personalized glassware

Monogramming, once a tradition associated with the preppy set, has gone mainstream. And we couldn’t be happier about it. A monogram — the personalization of an item with initials — has a way of adding a personal touch and makes you feel like an item was custom-made just for you. In short, if there’s an option to add a monogram, we always do — from totes to towels.

Why this Traditional Home editor has always wanted mix-and-match dinnerware

You may have seen the faces of the Traditional Homes editors smiling at you from the pages of our January catalog. They shared the items they’ve been dreaming of adding to their home, so we sat down with them to talk about their choices.

Jenny Bradley, Senior Design and Lifestyle Editor, loves to entertain! Because of that, she loves to have lots of dinnerware she can mix and match together to create new, unique looks. We asked her to share how she started her collection and what her entertaining philosophy is!
