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…

The wrapped gifts (bearing a special ornament chosen for each guest) doubled as favors & place cards. Wrapping paper & ribbon from Paper Source.

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!

A bottle of Veuve iced down in a modern champagne bucket never hurts.

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.

The pretty calligraphy was done by Sarah Lynton.
