LIFESTYLE - Beautiful Feasting
With a blink of an eye, it's already the end of October and the holiday season is just around the corner! As the weather in Los Angeles is finally began to cool down and feel like fall, I can't help but think about holiday hosting and all the amazing food to come. Even though this year I probably won't get the chance to host any celebrations (maybe), I absolutely love the idea of spending a little extra effort on the table setting to bring everything together. Even a simple and thoughtful gesture can elevate the mood and design of your table, giving your holiday meal that special something it deserves.
I love the introduction of something green at a table, giving it a certain earthiness and softness. You can never go wrong with a little nature! Aside from adding a little plant life, I gravitate towards the elegance of a fairly neutral color palette, with a combination of 3 to 4 complementary tones that tie the entire table together while allowing your vibrant textured dishes to really take center stage. Last but not least, the addition of a few well placed candles bring a soft glow and ambiance. With the table properly curated, the next step of giving your holiday meals a special touch would be using lovely tableware or even just pretty serving ware. When I have guests around, I like to bring out the marble serving board, delicate glassware or wooden bowls with matching serving cutlery to add a sense of festivity to the meal. Now that we've set the stage, time to bring out the main course to feast! Happy feasting everyone!
