~an informal holiday breakfast table~

One of my favorite things about the holidays is that my kids are home from school, we all get to sleep in, and eat a big breakfast together. 

Today I am joining Kristen of Ella Claire Inspired along with many other bloggers to show you a fun holiday tablescape.

I toyed with the thought of a formal setting, but like I said, what I really love about the holidays is that everything is so care free and nothing has to be stuffy or formal.
Especially when it comes to the breakfast table.


We recently got a HomeGoods in our city, right next to TJ Maxx.
Super dangerous.

But also super fun!
I headed down there and came home with loads of goodies, all for super cheap.
Most of the pieces I bought are super versatile and will work year round, so that's a bonus.


Large discount stores like this always seem to have a plethora of blue and white pottery and dishes.
I love mixing in blue and white for the holidays because it looks great with green and looks super fresh.

Adding varying heights in your table setting will create visual interest.
I like to use cake stands and pedestals to elevate even the ordinary, such as these tangerines.


Who doesn't love cheerios?
Fill a white pitcher with milk and pass it around.


Layer, layer, and layer some more.
I used giant red plates from TJ Maxx and mixed in white plates from the dollar store, blue and white plates from the thrift store, and then topped them with thrifted white ironstone bowls.
And I couldn't resist these darling animal plates in the Christmas section at HomeGoods, too cute!



Also in their Christmas section I found these darling place card holder.


I like to leave little gifts at each place setting.
I loved the whimsical nature of these boxes, and I believe they were under $5 for 6 of them!


I also found some specialty foods to go with our breakfast.


 I put the hot cocoa in a glass apothecary jar with a few mugs and napkins.
Another cake stand holds a ton of carbs, and everything is tucked into this faux alligator navy tray.


The maple syrup was left in it's original bottle because the label is so cool!


I left up my Vol 25 butterfly art.
I have Christmas prints, but I just love this one too much so it's staying up.
The chair got a new pillow, also from HomeGoods to tie in with all the other red.


Another idea is to use your packages/gifts as art!
I like to wrap gifts as I buy them so it's not a huge task come December 24th.
Scattered throughout the house during the season makes it look even more festive.


In the opposite corner I simple added candy canes for color
{and to add to the hot cocoa} 
and a little faux tree tucked in more blue and white.
I will be posting more about these new {cordless!} lamps next week, but for now, you can find them here.



Am I making you hungry?


Don't forget to stop by the other bloggers below and see how they styled their dining rooms for the holidays!
