Take a peek at how we decorated Holly’s holiday table using creamy white, gold metallic, and splashes of cheery orange!

1 -2.  For the centerpieces, we gathered three glass pieces with varying heights and grouped them in the middle of the table. In the tall pitcher, we placed clipped  branches from a tree in the front yard to add height and texture; in the clear vase we put a collection of small silver & white bulb ornaments; and we filled the round cookie jar with bright orange bulbs.

3-4. We wanted to see more texture on the table, so Holly went outside and snipped a few evergreen branches and arranged them around the glass pieces.

5.  For the place settings, we stacked gold chargers, creamy white Eva Zeisel dinnerware, and linen napkins wrapped with metallic leaves. The vintage Red Wing Pottery Orange Ball Pitcher really adds a fun pop of color to the table.

7.  A beauty shot of the dining room and Holly’s smart and saucy, patterned chairs!
