If you are following along this Holiday it’s our 3rd blog in our “Home for the Holidays” series. So far we had fun drying citrus, cutting out snowflakes, and on Instagram Reel we made bath salts. Since events at Danielle Gibson Events are canceled this year due to Covid-19, we have had some free time. We are usually finishing up the year with a fun corporate Holiday party for 2,000 people in San Francisco, but instead I am keeping it fun at home and sharing all things design for the Holidays.
Next up, THE HOLIDAY TABLE.
This year the number of people gathering may be smaller than in the past, but I still want it to feel like Christmas. We partnered with Encore Event Rentals and Blushtype to help bring our table design to life.
Let’s start with the garland!
I love using a holiday garland for my table. This one is arranged with magnolia leaves, white berries and some evergreen accents. I purchased this one at the SF Flower Mart, but you can also make this yourself. I tucked in the pampas grass by hand after I arranged it on the table for a non-traditional look. The runner underneath is from Linen Way. ( I don’t remember where I purchased it, sorry!)
For the place settings, I went with a matte brown/black look. At first thought using black and brown for the Holidays might sound drab, but when you arrange it with colors of the season, it acts more like a neutral color and really creates a beautiful organic look.
For the place-setting we used the following:
Candles change the whole mood of a table! The more the merrier!
Enjoy setting your table this year no matter how small the gathering may be!
