A Holiday Ritual
The season of celebrations is already here which likely means our calendars are filled with family and not-so-family social rendezvous. This year, like good traditionalists, we set a deep red & pine green table. In this guide you'll discover a few holiday rituals to celebrate with loved ones. And most importantly, we invite you to draw inspiration and create your own. Here, three key elements to the ultimate holiday soirée.
- "Accent with monochrome or patterned linens, starred glassware and, always a holiday must, extra-shiny silverware!"
Build your tablescape around one or two colors, and play around with the rest. This year we wanted to set a classic holiday table, with rich forest greens, maroons, deep reds and a splash of silver and gold. Accent your dinnerware with monochrome or patterned linens and, last but not least, extra-shiny silverware! Finish with crystal glassware and accessories such gold or silver candleholders or fabulous flower vases.
Take advantage of the power of flowers — they represent gratitude, love and joy. Use flowers as a major mood-lifter for your decor, and bring festive vibes with fragrant foliage such as pines and eucalyptus. Giving flowers is such an important ritual around all major life events, it's never too late to gift flowers!
We all have a loved one that taught us how to bake, or perhaps a favorite recipe. Use the festivities as an excuse to gather around the kitchen with your loved ones and cook something special. To keep it classic and chic… serve the bubbles, caviar, olives and a good piece of pecorino for the first ching ching!
