A Reflective Holiday Table

Looking to create a tablescape for a special gathering and not sure where to start?

Begin with one item to create your  INSPIRATION. It can be a color, a texture, a word, your favorite vase, the holiday itself, anything will work.  For this tablescape it was the mirror top of the Antique French dinning table recently acquired and delivered in time for the holiday gathering. Using mercury glass vases, bowls and votives to line the center of this long table allowed for each piece and flower to reflect creating an amazing display.

Additionally, the blue paint of the walls of the room was mirrored in the blue of the Seeded Eucalyptus and blue in the large oversized Curtain Call chargers by Wedgwood  designed by Barbara Barry.

Varying heights of votives & taper candles in clear crystal and mirror finishes  mimic the overhead chandler. Christmas Crackers add a fun touch of whimsy and a conversation starter.

White Tulips add a level of texture and dimensions to the Seeded Eucalyptus bowls. The raised bowl shape is reflected in the table creating the effect of a double arrangement. Test the height of the arrangements by sitting in each chair to be sure the guests will be able to clearly see each other above them. Polished flatware continues the Reflective theme on to the white napkins.

By using one item for inspiration your table will look cohesive and polish {pun intended!}.

Cheers & Enjoy
