How to Host a Wonderfully Nostalgic Christmas

Author Your Holiday Inspiration Guru | November 25, 2019

Tell your friends and family to don their ugliest Christmas sweater and come on over, because, this year, you’re giving the holidays a nostalgic twist. While a traditional Christmas is lovely, they can also be expensive and not nearly as fun as your homemade wonderland. Celebrate the holidays without breaking the bank by recreating this colorful Christmas table. 


Set the Tone with Color 

When hosting a wonderfully nostalgic Christmas, you don’t have to worry about clashing colors and patterns—in fact, you welcome them. Pull out your decor from holidays past and mix and match to your heart’s content. We elected to set our table with a plaid tablecloth and a lime green table runner, because why not? Forgo classic silverware and plates for durable, multicolored plasticware made to make cleanup a cinch. Finish off the look by tying your silverware packets together with candy canes and a striped ribbon. 

Holiday Pro-Tip: No tablecloth? No problem! Line your table with festive wrapping paper for a fun look and easy cleanup! 


Get Festive with Floral

Shop our grab and go floral bundles for a centerpiece that looks great for less. Make your bunch go further by supplementing with holiday decor you already have like mini trees, holiday ornaments, and plenty of candles. 

Holiday Pro-Tip: Try to keep your centerpieces below eye-level so conversation flows easily around the table.
