Kate Landers here again! I can’t wait to provide you with inspiration for your holiday gatherings. This month, I had the tremendous pleasure of styling some of the gorgeous products from Layla Grayce. The linen tablecloth, oval platters and mugs from Pom Pom at Home totally stunned me with their timeless beauty, and the “Frosty Tin Marshmallow” full apron from Ice Milk Aprons is beyond fabulous (The packaging alone is striking!). I have been a fan of the cake pedestals from Rosanna for years, and these absolutely darling petite pedestals with mini glass domes are no exception. Using these favorites from Layla Grayce, I’ve shared some ideas for hosting a Cocoa and Cookies gathering with your neighbors, family and friends below.

P.S. Scroll down below to learn how you can win all of the Layla Grayce products featured in this post!

1) Creating A Rustic and Sophisticated Style: I wanted to create a simple, nature-influenced dessert table inspired for the winter season. Products such as the natural linen tablecloth and classically elegant white crown platters and mugs were a fantastic way to create this look. A rustic wood planked backdrop, burlap ribbon attached to a dreamy green wreath and custom printables with a hand-painted feel added a variety of texture and style. Even desserts were created in warm earthy tones. Clean, pure, and sweet!

2) “Snow-covered” Desserts: Mounds of mini marshmallows look like snow on dark chocolate hot cocoa, and classic gingerbread cookies adorned with sugar crystals and white icing also showcase a snow-kissed look (snowflake shaped cookies only help provide a beautiful visual for this theme). To complement with extra sweetness, mini baked gingerbread donuts are blanketed in a white “snowy” frosting—how festive! Re-create the creamy white chocolate coating on the divinity puffs using icing, marshmallows and white chocolate drizzled over your desserts to add to the entire theme.

3) Dessert Presentation: I kept the desserts for this table very simple. Offering three desserts is the perfect amount to provide choices and a lovely look to your guests without overwhelming them. I opted for easy-to-grab desserts such as the mini baked donuts and divinity puffs stacked on pedestals and platters. One of my favorite details of this table (and perhaps the easiest to create!) are the mini dessert pedestals covered in clear glass domes, creating a “dessert snow globe.” To get this look, simply place your favorite sweet on a pedestal, coat with powdered sugar if you wish, and cover with the dome!

4) Hot Beverage Station:  Creating a hot cocoa toppings bar allows your guests to sweeten their cocoa with mint, caramel, whipped cream or marshmallows (among other sweet or salty treats!). I recommend also serving hot apple cider, coffee and tea to give your guests a variety of warm beverages to select from in addition to the cocoa.

5) Recipe Card Exchange: I absolutely love finding new recipes for the holidays, and cookie recipes are always a favorite! When mailing your invitation, include 3-5 recipe cards for the guest to bring filled out with their favorite cookie recipe. Then everyone at the party can go home with at least one new recipe to try at home. Share the yummy love!

6) Hostess Gift: I am completely smitten with the Ice Milk apron featuring that gorgeous large crisp bow front and center (though you could tie it a variety of ways). Packaged in an oversized Mason jar, it has such a beautiful presentation, and offers the perfect gift for the hostess. Another favorite detail: the apron colors are so neutral it can be used year-round!

Kate Landers here again, excited to share with you a lovely rustic and elegant holiday tablescape. As so many of us are planning gatherings with family and friends this time of year, I thought this would be an ideal opportunity to provide you with inspiration for your holiday entertaining! Styling this table with so many gorgeous products from Layla Grayce was an utter delight, and I can’t wait to share. Read on for more details on how to set your table in a sophisticated yet understated way this season.

P.S. Scroll down below to learn how you can win all of the Layla Grayce products featured in this post!

1. Long & Low Centerpiece:

This centerpiece was chosen because it is conducive to conversation. Keeping it long and low allows everyone at the table to have something beautiful to enjoy, without obstructing views, keeping the table open for all to engage.

Here I opted for natural elements, including birch pillars, a mix of muted greenery, and faux antlers coated with clear glitter for a festive look. This blend creates a striking look that is perfect from fall all the way through winter. If you wish to add a bit more sparkle, I suggest mercury glass votives filled with white candles for minimalist glam.

 2. Natural Table Linen:

I have been a big fan of Pom Pom At Home’s beautiful table linens for years. Their Olivier napkins present crisp white linen, a stunning trim and generous size. I think any guest would be delighted to wear one in their lap! The Lily tablecloth is a true work of art. With natural linen and a ruffle trim, this generously sized table covering adds incredible warmth to not only the table but also the entire room. A mix of natural and white linen gives a soft yet stunning contrast. Linen itself is an exquisite fabric that feels comforting and inviting while maintaining luxurious look.

3. White Place Settings:

I have always believed that white tableware is a tremendous investment. It is incredibly versatile and works for any event with any color scheme, casual or formal. From appetizers and salads to the main course or dessert, serving on white allows the meal to take center stage. The white crown plates from Pom Pom At Home look more beautiful in person than I could have imagined. The generously sized chargers with scalloped details really give each place setting just what you need for a polished look—you won’t miss the fussy extra details of more complicated fabrics.

4. Classic Stemware:

Another great investment is traditional and classic stemware. Again, these are incredibly versatile for a wide variety of occasions. These thick, substantial glasses used for this table pleasantly surprised me—they are not made of glass! I am in love with them. They have a clean look, weighty feel in your hands, and best of all, are friendly for children and adults alike. As a mother to a toddler, I have started wondering where these glasses have been all my life—family gatherings simply seem more complete with them!

5. Eclectic Flatware:

Who knew that your flatware could bring so much style to a table? Don’t be afraid to mix various sets of silverware or flatware, so long as they are all made of the same material. With these eclectic place settings, you’ll see a mix of a variety of patterns, shapes and designs (even a monogram!) for a look that is sure to strike up conversation among your guests. I envision even a fork will remind someone of their grandmother’s silver or cause them to reminisce on that set they wish they registered for before their wedding. This set gives your table loads of style and a relaxed yet refined finish to a perfect place setting. If you can’t tell, I’m personally in love with these.

It was a sheer delight working with so many natural elements for this tablescape. The muted colors allowed for the variety of textures and patterns to really shine. It keeps the look stunning yet simple—very easy to recreate, allowing you to focus on what matters most.
