Above, the white and gold color scheme in this tablescape by borrowed BLU strikes the perfect festive note.

The holidays are a time to sparkle and shine – especially when it comes to your tabletop. If you’re looking for inspiration for sit-down dinners, brunches, New Year’s gatherings, or winter get-togethers, here’s a few of our favorite tabletop designs found on Instagram:

A Centerpiece of Leaves & Blooms

A low arrangement of flowers and leaves makes a sophisticated centerpiece on the table of Caroline Harper Knapp. The metallic flatware and accessories, along with the simple white tablecloth, brighten up the look.

Ahhh sneak peek of one of my favorite holiday weddings 🌲 Molly + Michael's stunning winter nuptials will be featured soon on one of our favorite blogs but just 1 tiny peek into their reception at one of Cleveland's most historic locations, The Union Club. It was important for the couple to include a specific Black Watch Scottish tartan which can be found throughout many details of their day, from the flower girl dress to monogrammed napkins and pocket squares. The bride has the most exquisite taste 👌🏻these two will be celebrating their 1-year anniversary very soon ❤️ Gorgeous winter florals 🌿 by @leaf_ebt_akron | stationery | @aerialistpress | planning/styling @acharmingfete @_laurenhibbard_ | 📷 @emilymillayphotography

Though this gorgeous table by A Charming Fete Events was for a winter wedding, we think the concept would translate beautifully to a holiday dinner. Plaid ribbons stand in for napkin rings, bringing the seasonal pattern to the table in a subtle way.

A Natural Runner

Danielle Gibson Events lets the natural texture of a wooden dining table shine by leaving it bare. The lush pine swag, used as a runner, nods to the season while complementing the wood texture.

A Dash of Red

Bluebird Productions keeps the linens and dishware neutral, which shifts the focus to the vibrant flowers by Bare Root Flora.

Whimsical Patterns

Pencil and Paper Co. creates a delightful setting for a holiday lunch by combining patterns – and opting for a refreshing blue and red color scheme.

Shining Centerpiece

Paige Minear of The Pink Clutch also goes whimsical with her holiday table. She piled on shining ornaments into a mix of ceramic and porcelain bowls to create a simple yet impressive centerpiece.

Black & Gold

Though this idea from Casa de Perrin dates back to a June black-tie event, we thought that it would be stunning for a New Year’s table. The black tablecloth dramatically contrasts gold plates, flatware, and accessories for a glamorous look.
