I am SO looking forward to making this holiday season feel extra special for the entire family (but especially magical for Rex and Willow!)—with simple yet thoughtful touches.
I get so much joy out of setting a beautiful table and yet the California girl in me likes to keep it very simple. I love a table scene that is inviting, feels effortless and incorporates natural–straight from the tree or vine elements. I was inspired by the scent of Jo Malone London’s Pomegranate Noir candle which I always burn this time a year. I wanted to incorporate pomegranate branches (which I clipped from my girlfriend’s yard) on the table along with blush pink flowers (I love a pink and red moment) and came up with an ikebana-inspired arrangement that was so sweet. (I love how it turned out and had so much fun making it that if you missed this tutorial, it’s a must watch!) I kept the linens neutral and skipped a tablecloth in favor of again keeping things as simple as possible. But one touch I’m especially looking forward to surprising everyone with are Jo Malone London’s Christmas Crackers that I will be placing at each setting. A nod to a British holiday tradition that I love so much. The festive Christmas crackers would also make the perfect gift to send to loved ones you can’t be with this season. So they can place them on their own tables as a surprise to open with you in mind!
