Celebrating at home – December 2008


Inspired by some of the latest décor trends, we’ve created two casual table settings ideal for Christmas and other celebrations at this time of year. One is simple yet stylish for a special time with family, the other more relaxed, rustic and filled with natural objects and textures ideal for outdoor festivities. Best of all they’re quick and easy to do, leaving your with time to relax with family and friends.

Simply Stylish

  • The warmth of the dark wooden table shows off the place settings beautifully. Giving the table its festive charm and height are the two silver candelabras, tall enough not to obstruct the view of the person opposite. Silver candelabra, for hire, By Word of Mouth Hiring.
  • Layer your place settings with different textures, starting with the white woven African baskets, silver plate liners for sparkle and contrast with a bone-white plate with detailed rim on top. Beaded balls in silver and pearl placed on the table reflect candles set in silver-trimmed hurricane lamps. White grass baskets, R350, White on White. Silver under plates, for hire, By Word of Mouth Hiring. Beaded baubles, set of three, R69.99, @home. Anne Nichols plates, R165, One on One. Prestige linea stainless steel cutlery, available from leading retail stockists.
  • Symbols for the season. Wire stars hang from the chandeliers bringing about the Christmas feeling. Silver star, R33, Santos.
  • Silver-printed cushions add comfort to the benches and carry the sparkle through. Pizzaz damask scatters, R992 each, Cabbages & Roses.
