Holiday Place Settings – DIY
So if you watched my Insta stories from a while ago you know that my home decor style is 100% traditional and has been for a loooong time. BUT I also admitted that I am kind of diggin’ the rustic style too… and ladies it doesn’t stop there, I am also fully onboard the holiday train.
I am loving mixing rustic and traditional styles in with my Christmas decor.
Although I can’t cook, my husband can (thank goodness) and we make a great team when hosting dinner parties. I may be a little biased but we think they are pretty kick ass.
As the holiday season is full effect (T minus 29 days until Christmas Day), I wanted to share my take on a rustic traditional place setting for your guests.
See below for 3 different place settings that will have your guests swooning over your table top decor.

And there you have it; I hope you enjoy reading this post as much as I enjoyed writing it and creating these looks. If you’re lucky you’ll be able to snag a few Cyber Monday deals today, I know I have been scouring!
