Sometimes you come across new companies and just think to yourself “That is SUCH a good idea!”  When I first heard about the concept of TABLE TOP in a BOX, I knew it would fill a need for so many of us who love to entertain, but are honestly overwhelmed by the process! (What is even more amazing is that is founded by two women, Mallory & Elizabeth, who were Chi Omega’s with me at KU!)


TABLE TOP in a BOX was designed with two missions in mind:

  1. Take the stress out of hosting, so you can focus more on your guests, and not the prep! No fuss, just fancy! Sets are beautiful curated goods that look collected over time.
  2. Reclaim the art of hosting and bring people together!


  1. Pick Your Box – Currently, they offer 4 different boxes:  The Noelle (captures the sprit of the season), The Jules (minimalist, yet stunning in Simplicity), The Martha (true holiday classic – This is the one I chose!), The Charlotte (eclectic holiday glow).
  2. Add Your Plates – You don’t have to have fancy china to make these table settings look fabulous! Use your own plates for the setting!
  3. Dazzle Your Guests!


I chose The Martha because I love a traditional and elegant Christmas setting! You can choose either an 8 or 12 piece table setting. Here is what came in my 8 piece set:

  • 8 – TTIB Essentials natural rattan charger plates

  • 8 – Black watch plaid napkins

  • 8 – Fox + Hare brass napkin rings

  • 1 – Roll of 50 cream cotton cocktail napkins on a roll

  • 8 – TTIB Essentials solid brass place card / menu holders

  • 10 – Luxe white place cards

  • Set of 6 assorted gold taper candle holders

  • Set of 6 – 10” dripless white taper candles



I truly cannot express how easy it was to set my table! I had so much fun unboxing all of the items that looked like I had curated over years of hosting. I looked at the clock and wanted to see how long it would take to create the table!. In under 10 min I had a PERFECT table ready for guests to arrive! It was SO simple!

Here are a few more photos of my table setting! They have also created a Spotify playlist (Table Top In A Box), so put on some music, pour yourself a glass of wine, and have SO MUCH FUN setting your table!




TABLE TOP in a BOX can be shipped anywhere in the United States!

I truly hope this post helped you find the perfect Holiday table setting and takes the stress out of hosting! I can’t wait to hear which one you choose!
