Thanksgiving Table Tips From the Heart of Bellevue Experts
As the pandemic wagesFon and sunshine fades into our staple PNW drizzle, your home can still be a cozy retreat filled with warmth and style. And with holiday celebrations, family traditions and other cultural festivities to raise our spirits right around the corner, now is the perfect time to spruce up your space. Here are a few insights from local home stores in the Heart of Bellevue on crafting a cozy, comfortable environment for the holidays.
While conventional gatherings with friends and family are limited, the knowledgeable staff at Hedge & Vine advise embracing self-care and creativity! Prepare and plate your favorite dishes as the focal point and build around your delicious fare. Personalize your space with some whimsical elements like plush, woven throw pillows or harvest some flora and fauna accents like pinecones, evergreen branches and other winter botanicals to kindle a natural, great outdoors atmosphere indoors.
Adaptation and editing are high priorities for the designers at Seldens, who suggest setting a tasteful Thanksgiving table with simple, organic embellishments. Depending on the size of your table, experiment with height to create dynamic visual interest. Although, a textured table runner and some attractive napkins may be enough to piece together a full and elegant table display. Candles, gourds, and pumpkins are also a great solution to add more autumnal flair to a larger table.
Granted, with countless options, price points and alternatives to shopping in-store, the talented team at Seldens understands that outfitting your space can often be an overwhelming process. Request a complimentary design consultation with staff members who consider your lifestyle with a trained eye, address artistic concepts without sweating the details, and provide an individualized experience to help relieve a little stress on your plate - you already have enough to manage with roasting a turkey!
Neutral tones, layered materials and an emphasis on homestyle comfort are essential among the latest trends in winter weather fashion and reimagined interior arrangements.
