Christmas calls us home to celebrate the season with those we hold dear. Plan a special meal around the Yuletide table for a most delicious welcome.
SEASONAL SCENE: Add festive touches to the table with various arrangements of roses and Gala apples. Place blooms in antique stemware for an elegant element.
POTTED PANOPLY: Beneath an ornate gold mirror, a seasonal vignette features a potted peppermint amaryllis and a malachite box, as well as serving pieces in the striking Gaudron-Malachite china pattern from the table setting.
UPSCALE APPEAL: Ribbon in a rich wine hue accents evergreen swags that adorn the dining-room windows and mantel, bringing a regal touch to the display.
FINER THINGS: At each setting, one perfect peony, along with a tiny silver cedar, is placed in a glittery ornament to serve as a place card. Emerald stemware weaves in the bountiful colors featured in the floral arrangements.
FESTIVE TOUCH: Greenery repeated in the tablescape and mantel remind guests of the special time of year.
