This elegant Christmas dinner has a dressy but approachable atmosphere featuring a neutral palette of golds, silvers, and creams and emphasizing texture. "I wanted the soiree to feel organic yet luxurious—sophisticated without putting on airs," says Lynn Easton of Easton Events.
The juxtaposition of earthy elements, such as cedar logs and bare tigerwood branches nestled in the chandelier, with more lavish touches, such as mother-of-pearl napkin rings and gold-edged china, makes for a fancy gathering with a cozy undertone. In the corner, a graceful Christmas tree continues the effect. Lynn kept the look minimal and organic by forgoing clunky ornaments and decorating the Fraser fir with burlap ribbon and paper cones filled with balsa wood flowers.
