While you might not be seeing your local leaves turn just yet, the holiday season is just around the corner. And that means one thing: more dinner parties! Whether you're throwing a gala or a casual get-together, you're probably already worrying over table decorating (in our opinion, it can be more stressful than turkey shopping). So this year, we're going to simplify your life. Skip elaborate DIYs and disposable paper plates and try for these timeless ideas that'll take you just minutes to set up.


Thanksgiving

Fall's bohemian vibes call for vintage paisleys in warm colors and feathers tucked into flower arrangements. Leave the gourds to your butternut squash side dish this year and take them out of the centerpiece, swapping in decoupage plates (that look good enough to eat) instead. Got picky eaters? Mix and match spare glasses to spread optional toppings down the table.

Christmas Brunch

Keep the holiday informal instead of overly fussy by mixing metals and setting out bowls of candy for breakfast. (It's the holidays. Live a little.) Classic tartan trimmings will feel updated paired with block-printed fabrics and tight bundles of grocery-store carnations. The only thing more effortless than skipping Christmas dinner will be setting this brunch table instead.

New Year's Eve

Celebrate another rotation of the Earth around the sun with constellation-dotted plates and lots of metallic sheen. Need a nicer way to keep track of everyone's cups? Pick a few glasses in different styles for a glam way to claim your Champagne for 2020.
