A special event at Meadowood Napa Valley recently featured stunning holiday tables created by a number of Napa Valley hosts – a fabulous way to kick off the holiday season.  And I just love the blend of holiday and celebration in our table, perfect for your New Year’s Eve dinner party in black + white + butterscotch!

The event was held in Meadowood Napa Valley’s Vintners Room with its big stone fireplace and vaulted ceiling which gave a cozy and home-like feel. Nearly a dozen “hosts” featured in Napa Valley Entertaining were on hand to sign books and share their entertaining tips, along with author, Blakesley Chappellet and photographer Briana Marie.

In addition to the gorgeous tables by local designers there was local wine, champagne and signature seasonal cocktails to enjoy, like winter manhattans. Guests also enjoyed on delicious hors d’ourvres, Black River Caviar and decadent chocolates with edible gold dust.

The hosts featured in the book and at the event represented the diversity in style that is Napa Valley. We were honored to partner with one of the featured hosts, ROQUE Events.  We combined unusual butterscotch roses with white anemone and evergreen cedar bows on our gorgeous table perfect for the holidays and especially a New Year’s Eve dinner party!

After a whirlwind holiday season, we need a little extra inspo to get the creative juices flowing for our own table setting! Fortunately, we teamed up with the talented Danielle Gibson Events for this holidaaaaay inspired photo shoot featuring’s Target‘s new Hearth & Hand collection.  This collection was created in collaboration with Magnolia, a home and lifestyle brand by Chip & Joanna Gaines. If you haven’t already heard their story, learn about it here. Love these two inside and out for all they do in the world and their amazing eye for approachable design. And you’ll see one of my favorite holiday design hacks: loose winter greens and pomegranates.  Feast your eyes!

Love that these two were featured in Carats and Cake! Anna and Patrick were the most gracious and joyous couple to encounter during their planning process.  Every suggestion, question and conversation was greeted with a show of gratitude, respect and love.  With a ceremony at Grace Cathedral paired with a venue like Bimbos, you know it was such a moving and memorable wedding!  Anna truly trusted us to bring her vision to life with classic, lush blooms and clean styling for a modern yet romantic feel.  Her dress was the perfect example of this blending and an inspiration for our details.

Layers of Textures

Layering naturally happens during the autumn as the weather changes and we’re seeing that mimicked in our designs this season.  Combining layers of texture in natural autumn tones brings visual interest and blends the natural layering of our landscape and lifestyle.

Aromatherapy Floral Classes

Events are moving into wellness and experiential design with hygge influences on event design.  Soak up wellness and inspiration with herbs and aromatic florals as your medium in a floral design class or focus on essential oil blending to create rollers, eye pillows and room sprays that will offset the seasonal changes, buffer your immune system and enhance your spirits.

Hybrid living arrangements

Hybrid living arrangements combine plants with seasonal marigold and mustard accent flowers.  This blend of plants and cut flowers is a fun combination for conferences or residential settings looking for something long lasting and sustainable.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAGo ahead,PIN IT!


Greenery continues to thrive into the Fall season, again with sustainability and climate change on our minds, greenery plants are a natural decor option that suits our current times.  They offer health benefits to clean our air and produce less waste.

Elevate your centerpieces

Elevate your centerpieces with a sleek design that opens up sight lines across your table.  We find that these Epic Stands from Accent Decor are a versatile option for any style as they can be designed in both a modern or classic fashion to suit the event design.
