Sage + Silver Holiday Shoot

December 1st, 2011

Austin American Statesman Christmas Holiday Table Setting Decor Idea Place Setting Green Sage White Silver

For our holiday inspiration shoot for the Statesman (on newsstands today!), we chose a cool palette of silver & sage inspired by the shades of a snowy winter landscape. I’m so enamored with the final look that I just might recreate it for my own Christmas this year. Ash from The Byrd Collective created our gorgeous centerpieces using garden roses, dusty miller, bay leaves and all sorts of other beautifully-textured varietals tucked into her vintage silver collection. Apothecary jars full of sparkly ornaments, etched champagne flutes and delicately wrapped gifts at each place setting finished it off. Keep reading for lots more…

I usually keep this bell jar on my living room shelf, but knew it would be perfect on the table filled with silver ball ornaments. I found these on the dollar aisle at Target!

We crafted these wreaths out of floral wire and boxwood clippings from the hedges in my yard; strung on silver ribbon, they add such a festive note to each chair. Austin American Statesman Christmas Holiday Table Setting Decor Idea Place Setting Green Sage White Silver

    My Grandmother says she’s NOT celebrating Christmast this year if her tabñe doesn’t look exactly like this! (hope she’s kidding because I’m not sure we could make it look so impecably perfect!!)

    It really is astonishingly exquisite!

    Congratulations :)

  6. Love it! I have a question. I have seen you use that long wooden runner before. Did you make this? Can you give me some information about it…I WANT ONE!!!

    • Camille Styles says:

      Yes – it’s the handiwork of Ash from The Byrd Collective. They found this great piece of wood, cut it to the right size and stained it…it works like a charm!
