Create a Show-Stopping Table Setting

Creating a show-stopping table setting for the holiday season is a must! Wow your guests with these easy tips and tricks. 

Keep It Simple 

Use items that you already have. Candles make for great centerpieces, and if you have neutral placemats those work too! 

Be Creative 

Adding a pop of color to your table makes it fun and inviting. At Bella Ridge South, we decided to bring color into the model and grabbed these fun pieces from Hobby Lobby.

Pick A Color Theme

Whether you want your table colors to match the rest of your holiday decor or you want to set your own tone, pick a color theme, and run with it! 

Decide On Your Centerpiece

The centerpiece of your table will be the focal point. The place where everyone’s eyes go to first. Add height to your centerpiece to draw even more attention to the table.

Add Some Donuts To Your Table

What better way to welcome guests than with a tray full of donuts! We grabbed our delicious doughnuts from Little J’s Donuts on Hickory Ave in Harahan. 

Create A Delicious Vibe With Cookies

If donuts aren’t your first pick for dessert, try baking up some festive cookies to add to your place settings or as a centerpiece. Not sure which recipe you want to try? No worries, we have our favorites here

Have Fun

More than anything, your table should represent you. Have fun with however you decided and don’t be afraid to try something new.
