Our Christmas Style at Home spread!

As you may have seen, we were featured in Style at Home’s December issue. We are so grateful for the opportunity – it was our fifth spread in their magazine! (Thank you, Style at Home!!) I’m excited to share a few more photos and recipes from the spread with you today.

We went in a different direction than usual, opting for a more traditional look and richer, darker tones. A charcoal table runner, light grey napkins. Brass candlesticks and thin white candles. A collection of different vintage-looking dessert plates added character and charm to the white place settings.

I love incorporating natural elements into my decor. The centerpiece was a collection of olive branches and eucalyptus garland with a white paper magnolia flowers, fresh pears and figs tucked throughout. It was easy to pull together, and I loved the result.

Sweet-smelling gingerbread decorations are always a hit with guests young and old. We used a simple velvet ribbon to hang a few houses from our Christmas tree and pulled together a village on our mantel.

This frozen spiked eggnog is delicious. I think it’d be a fun cocktail to have ready for guests when they arrive.  (Recipe available here!)

And this fig & prosciutto braided bread? It is absolutely to die for. Erin, our food editor, really outdid herself with this recipe. It’s sure to be a crowdpleaser. (Recipe available here!)

All in all, this was such a fun shoot to pull together. I’m so grateful to everyone who helped to make it a reality and, of course, Style at Home for publishing it!
