Holiday Decor Inspiration

It’s that time of year — wow, already?!

Sharing today a few elegant and easy decorating ideas.

The Tassel Garland
To create this look:
Use a few large drapery tassels to hang the garland,  the tassels are robust  so they easily support the weight of the garland. 

What you’ll need:

6’–8′ garlands
At least 2 large drapery tassels (I used Solaris from Samuel & Sons)
Command hooks
Ribbon (to conceal the top of the command hooks)
Dried flowers or leaves for embellishment

The Tassel and Arched Wreath


Tassel and Rosemary Place-Card Holders

These are simply charming!

Here’s what you’ll need:
A few sprigs of fresh rosemary
Key tassels (I used Harbour, Aurelia, and Calisto from Samuel & Sons)
Place cards or gift tags with holes
Thin ribbon

Table Setting by Alessandra Branca

Classic and playful are the two guiding themes behind Alessandra Branca’s Christmas tablescape, which is made fresh and festive with vintage silver, quirky details, and gorgeous greenery. 
Setting the scene: A traditional table, along with a matching set of dining chairs, builds a solid foundation while allowing color, pattern, and all the fun details to take precedence.

For her place settings… Silver flatware, Astier de Villatte dishes (which Alessandra has had for decades), handblown Belgian glassware, and monogrammed napkins make for crisp and thoughtful settings. For an organic finishing touch, Alessandra tied velvet ribbons around the napkins with a sprig of white berries.
