How to set your holiday table the Loot way

If you haven’t noticed already, we LOVE to entertain! We can’t get enough of creating different types of design spaces for our friends + family. We like to showcase that “Loot way” everywhere we go! When it comes to entertaining, your tablescape is one of the most important focal points for your guests. It is one of the first things they see once they walk into your doors and probably the last place they will be at. Your tabletop decor can be chic + modern or boho + relaxed, while showing off your table in the “Loot way”.

What is the “Loot way”?

We always try to add that personal touch on your table top and what better is something handmade? Your guests will feel extra special and notice that one of a kind painted runner that they have never seen before. Raise your hand if you couldn’t find that certain look you wanted for your Thanksgiving table runner. Some words of advice – Just go to your local craft store, buy a yard of fabric, some paint, a brush and be creative! In the past, we have also used loose fabric repurposed into a bread bowl linen and napkins – the possibilities are pretty much endless. One more Loot touch is handwritten place cards. So simple, yet so thoughtful.

Next up, cozy textures. The mixture of different types of textures gives us butterflies, we aren’t joking! We love to make our guests feel like they are so comfortable that they forget that they are not in their own home. Our sheepskin rugs + pillows offer that warmth to the table. Throw a few on your seats for a design element + intentional item that will actually be used if your guests get chilly.

Oh lighting, you never let us down. Lighting is the icing on the cake for our tablescapes and it is a must! That subtle glow makes everyone a little more relaxed and ready to unwind. Lately, we are all about our Delaney Glass Candlesticks paired with tapered candle sticks in unique shapes and colors.

Lastly, enjoy + cheers to you and your guests!
