If you’re hosting a holiday dinner party at your home, you need the right dining room furniture.
What does that mean, exactly? And how should you go about sprucing up your space? Here, the interior design experts at Guild Hall Home Furnishings share their best dining room furniture ideas for a fabulous holiday gathering.
Select an Extendable Dining Table
Choose an extendable leaf dining table, and you will be able to easily adjust the size to accommodate all of your holiday guests – no one will be bumping elbows during your dinner party. And, once the festivities have come to an end, you can remove the leaf to free up more floor space.
Ensure You Have Enough Seating
Chairs, stools, benches, restaurant-style banquettes – when it comes to dining room seating, there are plenty of options. You can choose any style and type you like, or mix and match for an eclectic look. The important thing is to make sure you have a comfortable seat for each and every guest.
Invest in a Sideboard or Buffet Table
Wouldn’t it be nice to have a space in your dining room to set the appetizers, entrees, side dishes desserts? Place a sideboard or buffet table along the wall, and your holiday guests can enjoy easy access to everything on the dinner party menu, without sitting at an overly crowded dining table.
Set Up a Home Bar or Bar Cart
When you’re entertaining guests over the holidays, you’ll likely want a drink station, a spot to serve beverages that’s away from the bustling kitchen. With a home bar or bar cart – placed in your dining room or in a nearby area – you’ll have all the supplies you need to keep everyone’s thirst quenched right at hand.
Display Decorations in a China Cabinet
For a holiday dinner party, decorations are essential. A china cabinet can serve as the ideal spot to showcase your yuletide spirit, as the shelves can hold your favorite festive decorative accessories. Many styles feature built-in lighting as well, which can ensure your display catches the eye.
