Home for the Holidays

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays because it is all about the table.

If you are like me, you spend a lot of time thinking how your table will look, how guests will feel when they are sitting at it and how well it will blend with your décor. And, of course, you want it to silently convey the warmth and love that you feel as your family and friends sit down for dinner.

I always consider color and texture of the cloths first, then what china and floral I’m going to use to accent the table. But, being in California, I also have to consider if I will serve inside or outside.

Since this Thanksgiving will undoubtedly be warm enough for my family and guests to sit outside, I began to play with outdoor looks like the one pictured here. Instead of combining the deep tones we associate with fall such as brown, burgundy and orange, I focused instead on accents of burnt red (Russian Linen Florence Runners) and lightening the complete look with layers of ivory (Organic Twirl Ivory and Russian Linen Light Ivory).

While this look fits perfectly with the Spanish architecture of this Southern California property, Wildflower Linen has cloths to create whatever look you desire for this holiday season.
