Mintwood Social: A Cheerful Christmas Spread

The Holiday season is officially in full force and we could not agree more that this really is "the best time of the year!" Whether you're hosting a cocktail party for your besties or having your family over for Christmas dinner, it's always fun to have a beautifully decorated (and not overly involved or fussy) tablescape. So go ahead--pick that holly out of your neighbor's yard, add a sprig of rosemary to your napkin tie (smells great too), spray paint pinecones gold.  Nothing too fancy but it sure looks good.

Merry merry!

Whether you're hosting a friendsgiving throw-down with your besties, being put to the test serving your first ever turkey-day feast, or are a certified turkey roasting expert - we're sharing our tips and inspiration for creating a beautiful setting.

 

   

 

 

Friendsgiving, our favorite new holiday!

Plates: The chances that you have matching plates and silverware for the entire "listserv" of people that you've invited over are not that high, but that doesn't mean you can't have a great looking and PRACTICAL friendsgiving spread. Get a few people to bring the plates, mix them up and place them stacked at the beginning of your buffet line. It looks intentional, relaxed, and dare we say, kind of cool! 
Wine: Let's be real. Friendsgiving isn't Friendsgiving without copious amounts of wine. Are we right?
Silverware: Stack it in mason jars next to the plates. This saves space and keeps silverware organized.
It's Fall Y'all: Fancy place settings? Girl, please! Get outside and pick up some pretty fall leaves, add a name tag, and taa-dah, everyone will be super impressed by your crafty nature decor.
