I hope y’all can forgive my obsession with metallics this holiday season; for some reason, I just can’t get enough of everything that glitters, shimmers and shines. Last week’s silver & sage holiday table reflected (quite literally) the sparkly effect of sunlight bouncing off snow and ice…so for today’s board, I’m warming things back up with gold & copper tones that bring to mind a crackling fire and mugs of hot cocoa. Wouldn’t this palette set the perfect tone for a cozy holiday dinner with family & friends crowded around a long candlelit table? A gold leaf chandelier, cups of steaming cinnamon cider and bowls full of gilded ornaments heighten the warming effect. My mother-in-law is English, and she always sets these traditional “crackers” filled with candy at each place setting; try making your own with this DIY and metallic paper. I’d love to know: do y’all have any traditions that you incorporate into your holiday table design?
