A few years ago when we were still making videos regularly, we were planning out content and Wendy issued a challenge. She offered to clean my house (and make that into a video – which you can watch below) if I would style her dining room table. Obviously, I immediately said YES.

To know me is to know that I love holiday decor, and that extends to my dining room table as well. We started with a Christmas themed “tablescape” and now we have setting specifically for Easter and fall as well.
We try to keep my table set all of the time – regardless of the holiday season. The upside is that my table always looks nice and I won’t use that big, open, empty space as dumping ground for mail, half-finished projects and anything else that needs to be put away.
How to Style Your Dining Room Table
Setting a dining room table is a simple formula:
- Table runner
- Plates and maybe a decorative charger
- Centerpiece and seasonal touches
You can watch me set Wendy’s table below! I picked up most of the items you see at Target and have linked to similar products below.
It’s fun to stick with neutrals, but not everything needs to be all one color. My everyday table look is white with touches of gray, while Wendy’s is white with touches of beige.
