Holiday Centerpieces

‘Tis the season to eat, drink, be merry… aka host, host, and do some more hosting.  We love to entertain but know that from now until January 1st, it’s a marathon of shopping, decorating, and entertaining.  Homefest is here to help with some seasonal décor ideas that will go the distance.

We’ve updated our collection of centerpieces for the holidays, and they’ll take you from Thanksgiving to Christmas and beyond.  With our beautiful centerpiece trays as your base, we’ve curated a collection of ornaments, miniature trees, hurricanes, and votives to bring that holiday cheer to your table or mantle…the best part is, by swapping out a few seasonal elements, it can easily be updated all year long.


 

Gather Round: This Year’s Holiday Looks

Gold Christmas Tree Centerpiece:  Celebrate the season with a bit of sparkle! Our Gold Christmas Tree Centerpiece brings together festive gold dot votives and gold bottle brush trees atop shimmering gold mirrored glass.

 

Silver Christmas Tree Centerpiece:  Our Silver Christmas Tree Centerpiece brings together glowing red votives, festive mercury glass ornaments, and shimmering silver trees for a classic Christmas table that shines.

 

Gold Hurricane Centerpiece: Our gold hurricane centerpiece will take you from fall through the New Year in style.  The festive mercury glass hurricanes and gold-mirrored glass transcend the season. Throw a few of our gold mercury glass ornaments on for some added Christmas cheer.

Bold & Bountiful: Fall Centerpieces

That fall feeling in finally here, the weather is starting to cool, the leaves are changing, and I for one, am excited to pull out my boots and scarves!  In addition to embracing a new fall wardrobe, I couldn’t be more ready to usher rich autumn colors into my home with cozy throws and pillows, abundant fall florals, and a few home accent pieces that exude the richness and warmth of the season.

If you’ve been following Homefest for a while, you know that one of our favorite design solutions is our collection of “instant centerpieces”… particularly this time of year, when we go from tailgating and pumpkin-clad porches to Thanksgiving feasts to Christmas in a matter of weeks.  Our instant centerpieces are an easy way to update your mantle or table-scape for every holiday and season with a few simple elements.

This year’s selection, if I do say so myself, is one of our best!  With a beautiful centerpiece tray, ranging from shiny metallics to a rustic wood trug, as your base, we’ve curated a collection of hurricanes and votives, seasonal botanical elements, and accent pieces in rich fall colors to create a beautiful fall centerpiece.

The best part is, you can buy the entire centerpiece kit online (with or without the tray, for those of you that already own one).  It’s as easy as that… and it can be easily updated for Christmas or New Years by swapping out a few elements.  So make sure to check back for our holiday centerpieces in the next couple of months!

Fast Fashion for the Table

At Homefest, we’re often asked about the latest trends in dinnerware and entertaining. Over the years, we’ve seen a departure from our mothers’ china cabinet with full service for 12 in favor of a bit more personality, durability, and function. Nowadays we want our dinnerware to reflect our personal aesthetic, fit with our busy lifestyle, and we want to know where our products are sourced and about the talented artisans who create them. We are yearning for handcrafted dinnerware that celebrates the authentic and imperfect charm of each unique piece. We want dishes that look great on a formal holiday table yet are equally accessible for a take-out dinner around the kitchen island. With this in mind, we’ve taken a diversified buying approach.
