A natural backdrop of greenery is picturesque for this gorgeous outdoor farmhouse table. Decorated with glass, pastel florals and neutral cushions and tablesettings, this backyard is a comfortable place to sit, eat and converse with friends.
Plaid throws and napkins set a classic tone in this elegant, traditional table spread ready for a Christmas party. Gold plate chargers and flatware add a luxurious touch while a green garland trimmed with pomegranates and pinecones add a natural feel.
After the holiday plates, platters and placemats are stored away, add a new element of greenery through fresh flowers and topiaries. The lemon cypress topiaries and Star of Bethlehem in urns provide a touch of green, whether on a table or on a mantle, says Karin Jeffcoat of Cote Designs, a floral and event studio in Aiken, S.C.
An outdoor table for eight is tucked under a covered pergola and surrounded by lush greenery in this backyard retreat. An intricate lantern takes center stage and provides mood lighting, while rustic yet elegant accessories create a tablescape that beckons guests to linger.
Plaid and gingham and polka dots, oh my! Aniko Levai of Place of My Taste cleverly mixed fabric scraps and inexpensive wrapping paper to create this fun and festive table decor. Leftover fabric covers the tablescape’s conical “trees,” dots the pinecone-and-greenery centerpiece, ties cardboard reindeers around vintage glass bottles and finishes off the place settings.
