macy’s holiday tablescape: out with the old, & in with the new style & tradition

Christmas is less than a week away & with it comes the perfectly decorated holiday table! Growing up we had Christmas Eve dinner every year with my entire family on my mom’s side & we would rotate it between my mom & her two sisters houses. There would be fancy white plates, a buffet kitchen style dinner, red cloth napkins, tablecloths, & a simple holiday themed center piece. My mom & her sisters are so alike that no matter whose house it was at, the food & the decor pretty much always looked the same. Now, as an adult it’s my turn to get to decorate the table for Christmas Eve dinner. We’re changing up tradition & bringing the millennial style to the dinner table (I’m even making them have homemade pizza). So with the help of Macy’s & our holiday partnership, I’m bringing you a holiday tablescape with all the flair that says, “Abbey Kay definitely decorated the table tonight!”

I’m a big fan of white back drops & accessories, with a hint of wooden detailing & greenery. So of course this look pours over into my table decor aesthetic.  I loved these deep bowls that can act like plates from the brand, The Cellar, that was created for Macy’s. This is actually probably my favorite brand of dishware that Macy’s carries, & a lot of the products featured today are from The Cellar. Like these square plates, that I placed underneath the bowls to add to the decor look. And these adorable set of four tidbit plates that have cute sayings like, “eat, bite, taste, & nibble” that I used as appetizer plates. I added some fake pine greenery for color & absolutely love the holiday feel it gives to the scene.

The rest of the items featured are from the brand Thirstystone. I love the rustic look of this brand, & really think the added gold, brass, stone, & wood of it’s pieces make this tablescape come to life. I love the look of these stone, wood, & gold coasters that were perfect in bringing in a different texture to the table. This wood trivet worked great as a mini cheese board & these gold spreaders tied the look together. But what about these amazing metallic stemless wine glasses in copper? These cups were such a treat to find & I’m so glad that I did! Even though we have different colors from the metal family featured, I think it still goes together well. Add some real cranberries in with the greenery for an even more-so holiday look. Photo Dec 19, 12 54 45 PM_preview.jpegPhoto Dec 19, 12 56 14 PM_preview.jpegPhoto Dec 19, 1 04 33 PM_preview.jpegPhoto Dec 19, 12 59 54 PM_preview.jpegPhoto Dec 19, 1 02 21 PM_preview.jpeg

Now it’s time to see if the tablescape actually looks good with food displayed on it. Spoiler: it does. Pile the cheese & crackers onto the cheese board, fill the copper glasses with wine, & you are all set to serve up dinner in style this holiday season all thanks to Macy’s.

Big thanks again to Suzi Royls from the My Styist personal shopping center at the local Reno Macys’ for helping inspire & pull product to help get the perfect holiday look. Did you know that you can go into Macy’s & get help while shopping from a personal shopper & that it’s a free service? Next time to need to shop, but don’t have the time, or even know where to start, give them a call ahead of time & they’ll pull product for you to try on, gift, & buy!

Happy holidays from Abbey Kay & Macy’s. I hope you were inspired to create a tablescape this year that screams more you than family tradition. Play with the textures, metallic colors, & fun pieces that Macy’s has to offer, & enjoy making this year special & different!
