4 Practical Dining Sets Helping You Conquer the Holidays

October 19, 2018

A dining room is made up of a large table, a few chairs, a china cabinet, and maybe even a wine cabinet. Aside from adding smaller decor items like a rug or some pictures, this room is rather simple. After all, it mostly serves as a place to eat. Right?

Well, we like to think a dining room is more than that. A table is a perfect place for kids to hide under and eat all of their Halloween candy. It’s where a young couple can bring out board games after Friendsgiving. It’s where a mother is able to wrap gifts while the kids are at school.

A dining room is arguably the best room in the house. Let’s take a closer look at a few of our favorite styles.   

1. Space For Halloween Candies

You know what dictates a good table… from a kids point of view? One that has a big enough top to properly sort Halloween candy. You know how it goes. Kids dedicated days just scoping out the neighborhoods for the houses that give the best candies.

It only makes sense to come home to a large table that is able to divide the chocolates, nuts, fruit-flavored, and gummy candies. Let’s not forget about the bidding war that takes place after. We’ll trade two Fruit Snacks for your one Reese’s!

This Dining Room Group designed by Liberty Furniture is perfect for post-Halloween candy trading. It features a Relaxed Vintage Trestle Table with a dining bench and upholstered ladderback side chairs.

2. Turkey for Everyone

Nothing brings people together quite like a delicious, home-cooked meal. It’s the center of laughs, deep conversations, and every now and then, a war between children and the lima beans.

Thanksgiving or Friendsgiving, especially, is the time of year where dinner becomes a celebration of a family being together. Grandparents, in-laws, cousins, and friends gather for the turkey and pumpkin pie under one roof. We want to get you ready with a table that will fit everyone.

This 9 Piece Dining Set by Legacy Classic features a sturdy Trestle Table with a 20-inch leaf to extend its length from 76 inches to 96 inches. The matching chairs are just as gorgeous. With an X back detail and upholstered seats, everyone will be able to eat comfortably.

3. A Room that Lasts

Of course, enjoying a meal is an everyday need, but there’s more to it. Dining rooms are more than a place to eat or sort your candy. A lasting table means a place to play games, do some crafts, and wrap Christmas gifts.

If multi-purpose is what you’re looking for in a dining room we have the option for you.

The Casual Dining Room Group from Signature Design by Ashley could solve all your everyday needs. The Relaxed Vintage Rectangular Table features six convenient drawers truly making it one of a kind. It’s perfect for the family who needs a table beyond the purpose of having dinner.

4. Just For Two

Sometimes simplicity is all a person wants. There’s a hustle and bustle about the holidays. Between planning meals, buying gifts, and decorating your home, there’s just a lot to wrap your head around. So, a simple meal with your significant other is the relaxing night we all need.

This Kitchen Dining Room Group by Magnolia Home is perfect for a smaller space. The Joanna Gaines Pedestal Table has a delightful cottage feel with a scalloped apron and scuffed-up Salvage weed finish.

 

The holidays are on their way. Whether it’s Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, or any other holiday you may celebrate, your dining room will be the star. Function and durability will be put to the test. It should be able to accommodate big family gatherings and satisfy your everyday needs.

When it comes to the holidays, we want to make sure your dining room is the last thing you have to worry about.
