When setting a table for a the holidays (or any occasion), make sure you have a centerpiece! Centerpieces can be as simple as a single cut flower in a thin vase....line up 3 or 5 of these down a runner and some votive candles and you have now created some ambiance as well.
This picture of a Fall Table was a little more involved- I created this room at the Marketplace in Philadelphia, in the Robert Allen Showroom, for a fund-raising design event last year. Using a pumpkin from the craft store, I cut off the top and filled it with all types of fall florals, leaves and berries. Then I surrounded it with tulle and votive candles (pumpkin spice), leaf salad plates and accent plates.
Table-scapes can be fun- let your creativity and imagination do the work!
Happy creating! ~Julie
