Holiday Decorating: The Table Part 2

For this holiday table set up we wanted to feature a style we are really fond of: Bud vases!
Bud vases are a great way to add interest and style to any event…. dinner parties, weddings or any celebration! We have an amazing collection of apothecary bottles that I wanted to feature in this look. The unique shape of the bottles are more modern so we decided to pair baby blue eucalyptus with them. Eucalyptus is one of our go to greens as it comes in a variety of shapes and textures. Oh did I mention the smell? Fresh greenery always smells fantastic.
A walnut wood plank serves as a table runner and pine cones were used as place settings.
Another trend we wanted to feature is velvet! Emerald green velvet napkins really jazz up this monochromatic look.
Overall, this sleek modern table setting is simple to execute and will definitely impress your guests. BTW, this bread is amazing….

Holiday Decorating: The Table Part 1

Holiday parties! Need I say more? We absolutely love entertaining, and the holidays are the perfect excuse to catch up with those friends you haven’t seen in a while. You know, those friends you see in the summer and at Christmas. We get it, life is pretty busy in between.

I love dressing up my table for dinner parties. Sometimes the smallest details make the evening most memorable. This year, I hand painted ornaments for my friends and family, and used them as name tags on the table. With a background in fine art, this was the perfect excuse to spend my Saturday afternoon! I used a table runner I already owned and dressed it up with brass candlesticks and cedar greens. Once again, greenery is a fast and simple way to decorate, and the smell of cedar is amazing!

Stay tuned for next week as we show you another way to dress your table for the holidays!

Holiday Decorating: The Mantle

Every year my collection of holiday decorations seems to double. To the point where half of our basement is filled with boxes. This year I decided to do a great purge. I kept a lot of the sentimental items but got rid of the cheesy ones…my plan was to focus on using items that are part of our everyday life.
