Colorful ideas for Entertaining all year long

The Holiday season is nearing and you guys must be so excited about the prospect of receiving gifts and shopping for the perfect presents.

This year, I am focussing more on the entertaining aspect. I was looking around for some table-setting ideas and came across quite a few interesting images as attached below:

#1 Starting off with my favorite home store: ZARA HOME
Ethnic Table Set-up from Zara Home. Who said you need to match everything?
I love the use of different colors for the wine glasses and the dinner plates.

Simple Country Table setting from Zara Home. Clean and Neutral. Love the transparent dining chairs.

All White Table Setup from Zara Home. This might not look too festive, but I like the elegant & sophisticated look of this setting. Perfect for a small cozy dinner party with your friends and family.


#2 Moving on to Table settings by Rebecca Thuss
A special spotlight: Rebecca Thuss worked for Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia for 10 years. She was a Style Director of Martha Stewart Weddings magazine when she received many awards for her outstanding eye for style and creativity. Rebecca is now part of ThusFarrell, a multidisciplinary photography and graphic design firm that she founded with her husband. For more info, Click HERE

I totally adore her table settings. Here are some:
