Entertaining: Elegant Holiday Table

I  love an elegant holiday table and for this year’s inspiration, I was inspired by grey velvet, cotton (my stand in for snow which we very much lack in Santa Barbara), and of course deep red. Town & Country was once again kind enough to provide the rentals, including some fun new pieces I was very excited to use.

First up, the place settings. Here I used S.t Petersburg china paired with a Obscura charger which is clear with a thin silver rim. I paired it with elegant pearl handled flatware and feminine Cambria glassware.

For the arrangements, I used a wazon glass container and filled it with red cabbage roses, ranunuclus, cotton, brunia, stirlingia, and dusty miller.

In between, elegant taper candles added a traditional touch of elegance.

And finally, for chairs I used Town & Country’s new Cielo Blanco Louis Armchair. Here’s the rental cheat sheet for a party of 6 if you’d like to recreate the look at your own holiday dinner:

-6 Cielo blanco chairs

-1 8′ x 40″ table

– 8′ king drape

-6 obscura chargers, silver

-6 dinner plates, St. Petersburg

-6 dinner fork, salad fork, dinner knife, spoon

-6 red wine glasses, cambria

-6 water glasses, cambria

Special thanks to our sponsors Town & Country, Florabundance and Michael & Anna Costa!
