“Christmas Dinner for Two . . . “

One of Drew's collection of vintage London Owl Company 
owls does duty - guarding the dessert service! 


Each and every year I want our holiday celebration (and decorations) to feel new and fabulous.  This year . . . I kind of created a back-story.  Since the room where we have the tree is somewhat formal . . . and wanted the decorations to feel especially wild and 'fresh-from-the-forest.'  

Our tree (though purchased at one of our local tree-lots just by the house!) was filled with over-sized pinecones and numerous vining berries and five or six kinds of evergreen branches.  Very of early in the planning stages, I decided not to put *any* ornaments in the tree.  If I couldn't find it in the woods - I did't want to use it.

For the table . . . it was another mixture of old and new.  I truly wanted to use pieces from my Mother's collection of Rose Medallion China (which she collected her entire life!) and a few vintage pieces of my Blackwatch china mixed in.  Pinks and amethysts and Grandmother's sterling certainly gave our dinner table a particular family glow!

I also wanted to debut one of my new textiles - Staveley Park Trellis - this year.  It was inspired by Mother's china pattern - and certainly brought a fresh point of view to the room!  

I hope you're having a incredible season . . . and thank you for taking a few moment to share mine.

Happy Christmas,
