Festive Tables




Over the Thanksgiving weekend, LabDoc and I hopped on the train in Fredericksburg and headed to New York City in pursuit of a little holiday magic. Our charming Greenwich Village lodging, The Jade Hotel, was just a few blocks from one of my favorite stores – ABC Carpet and Home. With the first floor dedicated to design inspiration, I found my magic in these gorgeous table settings!

You can dazzle your guests by creating a similar look and feel. Start with a base of neutral cloths and runners. Add thin layers such as the metallic netting placemats for texture and shine. Pair modern white dishes with vintage china. Finish with a mix of silver and glassware patterns.

All the best,
