I have talked a lot about my love for Elsie Green in the past, but if you are new here it is one of my favorite resources for vintage French homewares. I recently had the opportunity to go to the stunning Elsie Green warehouse and shop in Concord and style a table using some of my favorite pieces from their collection. I wanted to create a cozy French inspired holiday table using very simple elements that make a big impact. Brass candlesticks in an array of sizes mixed with stoneware bottle vases and etched glass champagne coups created a varying of texture that always feels timeless.
A great way to keep a tablescape simple (and cost down) is to use a few small floral groupings and a lot of natural elements like fruits or vegetables. Pomegranates and red pears have such pretty coloring and paired very well with simple white flowers and fresh pine.
