When it comes to decorating the holiday table, we say: the simpler, the better. Start with natural basics (leaves, persimmons, boughs of pine), add lights (by string or candle), and keep the rest neutral. Here are 10 that followed the recipe to great success.  Above: One of our all-time favorite holiday tables, Remodelista’s 2010 collaboration with Rue Magazine applied the 100-mile sourcing rule to everything from beeswax candles to dinner plates. Find all the elements to re-create the look in Steal This Look: Remodelista's Holiday Table for Rue Magazine .  Above: The Berlin dining room of blogger Katrin from Taking Notes needed only a few pieces to add holiday cheer. (Katrin sourced her dining chairs on eBay for about €20 ($25) each and painted an unfinished credenza in Farrow & Ball's Down Pipe .) Above: We like this table's black-and-white stripes and copper pipe chandelier overhead; spotted on  Styling Pics .  Above: We appreciate this table by Amsterdam-based design blogger Desiree Groenendal of Vosges Paris  for its ability to deck the halls from October through December.
