Setting a Beautiful Holiday Table

200811-hp-chilewich-table-run

Food and Wine’s Stylish Holiday Table Slideshow caught my eye, especially with the opening photo above.  It’s a great example of using fresh colors and mixing and matching unexpected pieces to create a festive setting.  The slideshow goes through all the individual elements of this table setting, from the blue runner to the pink and orange glassware to the leaf salt-and-pepper cellars and moorish-inspired trays.  I’m have a weakness for blue and my china pattern is Lomonosov’s Cobalt Net, so I’m always looking for new ways to use it with other colors.  I also like the idea that a holiday table doesn’t necessarily have to use the colors associated with whatever holiday you’re celebrating, as long as it’s festive.  As in Food and Wine’s photo above and the setting below I threw together for this photo, it seems like citrus is a good match for blue.
