If you read my post on decking the halls this year, you know that I am craving simplicity and ease this holiday season. With parties, entertaining, shopping and decorating, the holiday’s are wonderfully busy enough. I wanted a space that was minimal and serene – a place to unwind and relax. This longing is perfectly captured in this years holiday table setting. A rustically sophisticated setting, perfect for gathering with friends and family.
With the flip of the calendar to December, it’s going to be all things Christmas and holidays around here! Although, I have to say I feel a bit late to the game. Christmas seemed to arrived earlier than ever this year. Not that I’m complaining. It takes everything in me not to start posting about the holidays right after Halloween. In fact I read somewhere that those who decorate for the holidays early are happier than those who don’t. Good enough for me – let’s dive into today’s post on Decking the Halls.
I must say writing a post about a tablescape in the days after the horrific violence in Las Vegas and Edmonton and what feels like weeks of devastation and destruction, feels frivolous and superficial. And while I’m not sure what would be an appropriate post to write, I wanted to take a moment to acknowledge my deep sadness and send thoughts of love and prayers to those affected in particular, but all of us really. I honestly have no words.
