Holiday Heritage Series: Casual Gullah Holiday Kitchen Style

Holiday Heritage Series: Casual Gullah Holiday Kitchen Style

Want to add a little holiday style to your table without spending too much time or money, we have just the inspiration you need. I love decorating all the tables in my home but can’t splurge too much on all of them. For my kitchen table, I chose to use Casual Gullah Holiday Kitchen Style, incorporating items from my own collection to pair with traditional Gullah cuisine. Check out my holiday table below and some of the delicious food from Carolima’s today!

Casual Gullah Holiday Kitchen Style

Mix Old and New: For this table arrangement, I mixed a variety of styles. From traditional bows to chinoiserie plates, I picked what I loved and made it work. For my linens, I chose a bold holiday tartan and use the green placement to add just the right pop of color.

Unique Centerpiece Items: No need to splurge on fresh flowers or make an extra run to the store for a unique centerpiece. If you have extra ornaments and old serving bowls, these are a great start to a bold centerpiece display with minimal effort and no watering needed.

Mix Traditional Dishes With Modern Dishware: Okra soup and collard greens are traditional Gullah Christmas menu items. I love the idea of pairing these classic foods with modern dishware. Food always looks better it a crisp white bowl or platter.

Mixed Metals Add Style: When trying not to keep things to formal on a dinner table, I am always a fan of mixing metals. These metal pieces were all collected from Lowcountry thrift and antique stores throughout the years. Be sure to shop your home for unique items to repurpose in your table decor.

Sweet Tea is a Must: Every Lowcountry party must-have sweet tea. Don’t be afraid to incorporate sweet tea as a part of your holiday menu as well. You can pair it with fresh fruit or place it in unique dishware.

Palm Leaves for The Holidays: Coastal and island living is a large part of Gullah culture. I chose to use a nontraditional palm leaf placement for my table setting. You can continue to use this table setting well beyond the holidays and it is definitely something your guests won’t forget.
