Setting the Table for the Holidays

December 11, 2017

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.

The entire colour story for the space was inspired by pink dishes I spotted at IKEA.  To them I added natural tones and textures, to create a look that is elegantly simple.

Rose gold flatware adds a touch of holiday sparkle.

Rather than doing an elaborate centerpiece or runner, I simply used seeded eucalyptus and silver dollar down the center of the table. I accented the muted greens with vases filled with chestnuts and hazelnuts. I adore how they look and the natural element and tone they add to the table.

A simple slit in each chestnut makes for the perfect way to hold a place card.

To contrast the earthy, natural feel of the table, I added contemporary, edgy glassware to enjoy holiday cheer with family and friends and toast the season.
