Happy December 1st! And tis’ the season! We are ready for all things holiday and we’re kicking off this fun season with a ladies Christmas dinner! Our friends at Sur La Table have all of your holiday needs, as per usual. Beautiful tabletop pieces, fun decor, and even gifts! We included their adorable and fun ornaments for a ladies ornament exchange. See how we brought all of this pretty together for a beautiful set up anyone would love to be a part of! Cheers friends, it’s the best season of all and we have lots of beauty for you!!

Sending your best gals an invite for your holiday soiree is a must! And anything plaid for the holidays just makes my heart happy! Chelcea Creative designed this cuteness and we styled it up with the ornaments that served as place cards for our guests. It was so fun choosing ornaments that went with each lady’s personality! They really do have something for everyone!

You can see how we used the ornaments at the place settings here! How cute are they?! And we added each guest’s name and a little something about them to go with the ornament. So much fun! And more of this place setting later… I am loving it so far!

More of the ornaments! Like I said, something for everyone, indeed!

More pretty coming your way! We set this table outside, because in California you can! My friend Marnie who owns Sweet Salvage Rentals has the most picture perfect backyard and we set this there! Not Just in Novels added lots of Christmas greens and holly berries along with beautiful red ribbon along her gazebo and I’m obsessed. Lets take a closer look at this beauty!

There’s just so much pretty on this table I can’t get enough! I used Sur La Table’s Snowy Village dinner plates and plaid napkins along with their rattan chargers and cafe flatware. I love using this red glassware in coupes and tumblers on my holiday table every year too! It adds a fun pop that’s extra merry!

Another piece I loved was the table runner! It’s from Sur La Table and it’s paper! Not super expensive but definitely adds a stunning touch to our table.

Not Just in Novels also added these beautiful florals to our table to dress her up! I’m not usually a red fan for our events but when the holidays come around you’ve gotta have it! And then it makes me fall in love with red each time… These babies are gorgeous!

We took off the menus and showed off these pretty plates! Such a great classic to have for the holidays year after year. I especially love the nostalgic look to them.

A whole lot of holiday pretty!

Such a lovely set up! And I really adore the mixture of the rustic wood table and the white chairs from Sweet Salvage Rentals.

We also had a bar set up because as Chelcea Creative’s adorable sign says – we were making spirits bright!! Colette’s Catering came to play and create fun & festive cocktails for us to enjoy. Sweet Salvage Rentals made us look good with their rad bar and shelving and we decked it out with all the pretty glassware! More flowers from Not Just in Novels finished it all off, cheers to this goodness!

Dessert was also served on the most adorable tree shaped charcuterie board from Sur La Table! How fun is that?!

The most charming set up! Those red chairs from Sweet Salvage Rentals are asking me to cozy up with a plaid blanket!

Well we can’t forget about the delicious spread Colette’s Catering brought for us to enjoy! They got fancy for us!! So much scrumptious food and pretty too!

Now it’s time to take it all in and enjoy!!! That’s the best part of the holidays, isn’t it?! Enjoying the time with those you love! Now that’s what it’s all about…

We will have lots more holiday cheer for you this month but until then shop all of this goodness at Sur La Table, I already have!!
