Shimmer & Sparkle
Silver and gold metallics will add chic style to any neutral room. We love the elegance of a mantle or dining table adorned with antique mercury glass candle holders and votives, classic white candles, touches of greenery and white amaryllis.
A Mix of Fabrics and Textures
Mix and match cozy fabrics and materials such as faux fur blankets, chunky knit throws, quilted velvet stockings, leather poufs, burlap pillows and red plaid fabrics. It’s a perfect way to layer in warmth an luxury to any space.
Bring in elements from nature for a rustic look by using fresh evergreen and winterberry wreaths and trimmings paired with pinecones, twigs and fruit. Then pair with nostalgic touches such as embroidered pillows with wintry imagery and vintage designs, plaid dinnerware, ornaments and frames.
Fill glass bowls and vases with colorful ornaments, candy, nuts, pinecones, pomegranates, kumquats or cranberries then top with a pillar candle for a unique accent. Try recycling wine bottles and use as candlesticks by replacing labels with metallic wrap or a bow. The possibilities are endless!

Holidays spent with friends and family is something we should all feel grateful for. So why not make your Thanksgiving guests feel extra special by setting an unforgettably welcoming table to gather around? Whether your style is casual or formal, we have some tips for setting the tone (and table) that’s right for you.
1. Use Warm, Rich Autumn Hues
Mix and match neutral dinnerware and table linens with pops of whimsical colors of the season – oranges, reds, yellows and browns. For a more formal and cohesive look, try to limit patterns and colors to no more than two.
2. Mix and Match Styles
For a modern twist, replace the traditional table cloth with natural woven placemats or chargers paired with more formal fine china and and glassware.
3. Use Elements With Different Textures
Add depth to your centerpiece by layering natural, rustic elements such as pumpkins, gords, twigs and pinecones with a mix of shiny silver and gold metallic votives and candleholders.
4. Be Creative For A Unique Look
Have fun by using items from nature in unexpected ways — spray pumpkins with copper or gold metallic paint, place fall flowers in gourd vases, attach a simple name tag to a colorful pear, use bark edged wood for chargers, ask guests to write what they are thankful for on small cards and hang from a bouquet of branches, etc.
