Elegant Christmas Dinner Party
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.
Lynn crafted chic place mats with inexpensive wallpaper, pairing them with gold-edged china and simple flatware.
To finish on a comfy note, Lynn offers a spicy after-dinner eggnog garnished with whipped cream, cinnamon, and nutmeg and served with cookies on a silver tray.
