Happy Holidays All!
As I promised you on my Holiday Home tour post, below are the photos of this past weekend's holiday dinner we hosted for four very close neighbors in our dining room. We had a terrific time and I'm still wearing the hangover to prove it. I must say that as much as I loved the end result of decorating the table and home...it definitely reminded me of how exhausting it can be. This is probably why you may not see another table like this from me in a very long long time.
I created the centerpiece with red roses,peruvian lilies,snap dragons,red holly berries,fresh lemons,miniature red apples and a variety of evergreens such as cedar,fir etc.
The 2 compotes were actually an after thought. I purchased more flowers then I needed for the table centerpiece so I simply used the leftovers in the compotes. They were removed from the table before everyone sat down for dinner.
Another view of the table looking toward the front of the home. The vintage Asian wallpaper is by Albert Van Luit & Company.
The silver votive candle holders with the red beaded shade were a great find at our local Target store many years ago. They are still one of my holiday favorites.
An aerial view of the table. The emerald champagne and ruby red wine hock crystal stemware are by Waterford from the Clarendon collection. The water goblets are by Arte Italica from the Medici collection.
The porcelain dinnerware is by Bernardaud from the Elysee collection.
I couldn't end this post without sharing pictures of our little guy whoo-ing all the women that attended my partner Dan's office holiday luncheon this past Friday at the Grange restaurant.
