Color Me Pretty: Christmas

The holidays are beautiful in almost (key word here) every way and entertaining for the holidays is fun and festive. Below I’ve shared some fabulous holiday greatness and goodies! 
1. The drinks! Shown: Ginger Fizz Cocktail + Affogato (peppermint ice cream and hot cocoa)
2. The display
3. The table: layer silver and gold balls in bowls over a plaid table cloth,  finish it off with a mix of white blooms.
4. Carolina Herrera Pre-Fall 13′ dress. image via for a more casual look layer beautiful baubles with a hint of red. Image via Erica Cook, Moth Design. see J.Crew for similar necklace

  1. Your Christmas settings and displays are beautiful and uncluttered. I like the way you’ve arranged your gold and silver tableware along with simple trinkets that represent the season. I thought the plaid would crowd the décor, but it actually blends in well. You’ve put a lot of thought and detail into this, yet made it seem effortless. Also love your mantelpiece arrangement. As for your planned outfit – the red dress would go beautifully with some blackened silver or gold jewellery; maybe laced with some faux precious stones and diamonds. Subtle and eye-catching – you’ll be both the belle of the ball and the gracious chic hostess!
