Wishing all of you who celebrate a very Merry Christmas! As you readers know, setting the table is always one of my favorite aspects of the holiday season. This fall, I had attended a dinner to celebrate Vaughan‘s new tribal collection. While I loved many of the designs, I realized the new Eva, with its deep jewel tones and graphic pattern, would make a marvelous backdrop for a boho holiday table.
I yet again enlisted the help of Karen Legan of Lemon Dahlia Flowers, who interpreted my direction with a marvelous centerpiece anchored by dramatic proteas surrounded by other florals echoing the colors in the cloth.
Vintage plates, amber and tortoiseshell glassware, Alain Saint-Joanis flatware and my favorite Mottahedeh chargers completed the theme. Maidenhair ferns and branched oranges added natural and fresh touches.
