There is something captivating about a tablescape that’s country in vibe but has touches of urban elegance. Here’s one I love that is anchored from its centerpiece: antlers bought at the downtown LA flower mart (you can also get them online) and a long, jute runner by Crate & Barrel. The rustic elements are then offset with ivory and celadon green flowers and flowering pink berry branches. Hemmed linen napkins in eggplant and wooden plates from Williams Sonoma add more color and texture. Magnolia leaves and fresh pomegranates scattered down the middle of the runner and mini pears used as place cards (Paper Source) tie it all together.
I typically prefer low candlesticks—mostly votives—as they don’t get in the way of conversing guests. But in this case, I break my rule. The tall vintage candlesticks add a hint of drama—that this table so deserves.
