Setting a Holiday Table

Thanksgiving kicks off a season of dinner parties and holiday meals, so I’ve put together a few options for setting a festive table. I kept it it monochromatic, adding metallic accents instead of color for interest. Here are the base pieces I used (some I own, some were borrowed).

  1. PB White Soup Bowl, Pottery Barn

  2. Scalloped Bowl, Target

  3. Wood-Slices Organic Dinner Plate, David Stark for west elm

  4. Wood-Slices Organic Bowl, David Stark for west elm

  5. Silver Charger, Pier 1

  6. PB White Salad Plate, Pottery Barn

  7. Wood-Slices Organic Salad Plate, David Stark for west elm

  8. Lotus Bowl, Cost Plus World Market

  9. Dazzle Dinner Plate, Crate & Barrel

  10. PB White Dinner Plate, Pottery Barn

Here are just a few of the possible combinations (and no, I don’t mind mixing silver and gold).

The Marimekko Lumimarja tablecloth was a gift from my mom last year, but it is available this year in gold. I also mixed in bird napkin rings and plain white napkins, along with our everyday flatware.

Reversible Gift Wrap

Reversible wrapping paper is great because when you have a stack of gifts they look instantly coordinated, though it takes no extra effort on your part to mix and match patterns.

Basement Progress

The walls are framed, the floors have been leveled, and much of the electrical work has been done. Our glass block windows are also in place, and most of the plumbing work is finished. Some of the heating ducts need to be moved, and I think there is more electrical work to be done, but supposedly we will be getting drywall very soon.

Hello, future laundry room and half-bath.

Hello, future lovely basement.
