Rachel Zoe’s Holiday Hosting Tips

by Stephanie Montes

Our EIC unsurprisingly hosts with style. In an effort to make our holiday parties feel just as glamorous, we tapped her for her tablescaping and hosting tips. Watch the video or browse our summary below to become the hostess with the mostest.

Go With An Unexpected Color Palette

We've all seen the pumpkin-printed runners, orange napkins and fall-themed china, but if you really want to wow your guests, surprise them with an unexpected palette. Shades of white and natural elements feel fall-ready without looking outdated.

Work Your Theme Into Your Home Decor

You don't want your tablescape to feel out of place. A true hostess brings her personal style from her home decor into her seasonal entertaining essentials. Choose a runner, plates, glasses and flowers that accent the colors and finishes of your dining room for an effortless look.

Ditch Your Silverware For Gold

Sure, it's called silverware, but that doesn't mean it actually has to be silver. Forks, knives and spoons in gold feel luxe and on trend, no matter what holiday you're hosting.

Make Your Guests Feel Special

Guests will remember the times you made them feel at home. A personalized element on their place setting will not only make them feel special, it'll make your tablescape the most liked on Instagram.
