Holidays Tabletop Giveaway

style at home : Holiday Decorating and Entertaining tips

If you like magazines, you could win the December 2007 issue of Style at Home.

This issue of a Canadian Home décor magazine is packed with Holiday Decorating and Entertaining tips.

My advice

The two tabletops are from an article called Dress up the dining table. Overall the tabletops look great but they are some faux pas:

  1. The water glasses are missing. Serving water is a must at every meal. Whether the people drink it or not is irrelevant. Table manners are clear on that subject: everyone has a water glass.
  2. If you wish to go with the face to face look, make sure your table runner is 24 to 30 inches wide. The one used on the gold table is clearly too narrow.
     
  3. For the Holidays, placemats feel too casual in my view. You cannot go wrong with a nice table cloth, especially if you wish to dress up your table.

How to participate?

Note on October 5th, 2007: I simplified the question before anyone posted an answer because the previous question was too vague.

To have a chance to win, you must write a comment before Monday, December 10th, 2007 11:59 Eastern Time. Your comment must answered the following question:

In what color(s) will you decorate your Holiday dinner table this year?
