Throwing a holiday dinner party is so much fun, but if you are short on time it can get stressful. You have to take care about the decoration, the food, the drinks and all other details to make your guests feel good. Also it can get pretty overwhelming to choose a theme for your party and to collect all the accessories. Here is where Esselle comes in - Esselle is an online shop for all things entertaining and dinner hosting. I teamed up with the lovely co-founder Sherry to create a holiday table with their Hostess Box Bella. The idea behind the Hostess Boxes is pretty smart. Choose a box that fits your aesthetics and you will get a set of chic pieces you need to set up a classy table. Each box includes decoration like center pieces, candle holders, napkins or table runners. With a little bit imagination you can come up each time with something different, because you can re-use everything from the Hostess Box. I used 4 navy napkins, hand-made place card holders, cinnamon sticks, birch votive candle holders, hand-made center piece containers in gold and some navy/gold confetti to achieve an rustic, classic table setting by just adding my fine china and some flowers. I loved how easy it was, no day-long research sessions. You should definitely check out Esselle also for some other pretty table decor items. This gold glazed pebble dish I used too and the cute cake stands are on sale now. I hope you like my arrangement and now go browse Esselle for more table decor inspiration.
Tying the flatware with a jute string gives adds a rustic touch to every table.
I love the earthy touch the birch candle holders give to the table setting.
