6 Fresh Ways to Decorate for the Holidays
A Mod Holiday
Hosting a holiday meal this year with your hubs-to-be? We're all for recreating grandma's classics when it comes to the menu, but her go-to poinsettia centerpieces don't have to make an appearance. Get inspired by these wintry wedding tablescapes that are anything but expected.
Just like the rest of the fashion world, we're mad for plaid this season. Use it to cover your table and top it with silver for a look that's surprisingly chic.

Let There be Light
Recreate that cozy glow from the fireplace, and skip florals all together. Warm your table with a collection of bronze lanterns, hurricane lamps, and candles atop neutral linens.
Forget Red and Green
This clean white and purple palette feels as magical as a dusting of fresh snow. The star is a silvery lantern surrounded by a glorious wreath of ranunculus, orchids, picasso calla lilies, jasmine, and sweetpeas, one of our go-to winter flowers.
Go for Gold
It's a snap to boost the holiday factor of basic white vases—just add gold. Transform ceramic containers with an easy Old World Art Gold-Leafing Kit. Fill them with white roses, orchids, Queen Anne's lace, black scabiosa, viburnum berries, and alocasia leaves, to complete the black, white, and gold palette.
Add Some Shimmer
If these pretty petals appear too good to be true, take a closer look. Mother Nature provided the chrysanthemums, carnations, button mums, English daisies, and dusty miller. We added the snowy faux finish by spritzing some blooms with gold and silver floral paint, and dipping others into metallic glitter.
Craft a Wintry Display
A little glue and tissue paper are all you need to transform plastic fruit into a modern, sculptural still-life. The uneven texture and matte surface of papier-mache preserves an organic feel despite the otherworldly effect created by stark white.
