The Simply Luxurious Life®: The Focal Point

The Focal Point

During the upcoming holidays whether you are hosting the big day or having a small dinner party during the month of festivities, a beautiful tablescape is a creative way of setting the tone of the event.  One can choose to be formal, casual, indoors or out, assigned seating or not, the possibilities are endless, and even better, it can be prepared a day or to ahead of time. I’ve gathered together some ideas of ways that may pique your interest.  And if you are planning on throwing a dinner party, check out my series on the topic by clicking here.

Beautiful and inspiring images ... I just love setting a Thanksgiving table. You may have noticed my tweets in which I mentioned that I hosted an early Thanksgiving this last Friday. During the evening, with candlelight glowing and laughter from my family, I thought of how much I love this holiday. Tomorrow I'll be heading off to another Thanksgiving dinner celebration out of town. Hope yours is fabulous and I know your table will be lovely! xo

Lovely images - especially love the formal neoclassical shot - amazing that we did not pick any of the same images for our round ups although I almost used the one with the feathers from domino - gotta love the feathers! Have a great holiday!!
