Center Pieces of Attention
Sometimes all it takes is a good centerpiece to bring a room to life. The winter months call for dark forest greens, cranberry reds, and silver and gold accents. These colors can be incorporated with tartan plaid, greenery, floral arrangements, candles and more.
Hosts Global members around the world have gotten creative with their table décor. Hosts Washington, D.C., used both large and small bouquets of red roses in golden vases. World Events Consulting in Switzerland brought the great outdoors inside with an artificial miniature evergreen dusted in snow and surrounded by pine cones and balsam fir branches. Hosts Chicago set silver plates on a wood table with a metallic tablecloth runner, white and green flowers, and gold candle holders.
"Holiday centerpieces are not only classic, but also a staple: tablescapes that reflect the flicker of a flame, warm and rich hued florals, textured linens like velvet, and metallic touches that make the light dance," said Kate Duzan, director of marketing for Hosts Global. "They're the perfect way to add a touch of nostalgia this time of year."
