Throw a holiday party worth heralding

There is no better time than the Christmas season to pull out the glitz and glamour when setting the scene for a dinner party. Gilded accessories pair well with natural elements in this tablescape created by Angela DiVincinti Babin of Angela Marie Events. She coupled china from Lenox’s Embassy Collection with Palace Trellis stemware from Anthropologie and placed it all atop a gold-sequined tablecloth. Babin also added fresh pomegranates and golden pears along with spruce as accent décor.


“I love using fresh elements,” says Babin. “Fresh flowers and fresh fruits … whatever I can get my hands on. Natural elements offer a warm and welcoming feeling to your guests by bringing different aromas into the air and beautiful shades of color to your table.”


From the invitation to the drinks menu, every element here contributes to the celebratory theme.
