As our holiday entertaining slows, it's time to change out the festive holiday decor for a more neutral, winter look. You can still keep elements of rich colors and metallics, but we like to introduce a more refined and moody tablescape. A winter dinner party is the perfect time to introduce a timeless dishware collection like the Ginori Oriente Italiano collection—a true example of a modern Renaissance aesthetic. This dish collection by Ginori merges exotic beauty with Italian elegance, and makes for a very inviting table.
A Warm Welcome
Aside from a bold color choice in our plates—porpora specifically—there isn't much color otherwise. Venetian glassware with a gold filigree brings a nice sparkle. The addition of Murano white and gold candlesticks add height and depth to the table setting. Gold Venetian glass salt cellars tie in all of the gold accents and elevate the look.
Showcasing Your Table
Not all tablespaces require layers of linen fabric. Sometimes your table itself is worth showing off and accentuating. This French wood table is a prime example. The warm wood is worth showing off and leaving exposed. If you prefer using a linen, you could also experiment with a runner.
A Centerpiece of Greens
With so much rich table decor, a muted and mono arrangement is usually a good design option. Winter greens are a great seasonal option to freshen up a table. Cut greens also offer a beautiful aroma to heighten the senses for your dinner party. A low arrangement is usually a preferred height to encourage conversation across the table.
A moody tablescape is a lovely way to reacclimate your space for the winter season. Try your hand at a beautiful tablescape to welcome guests.
