Rustic Holiday Tablescape | Hen House Linens

What happens when you ask two creative, visual people to collaborate on a holiday tablescape?  Straight up gorgeousness.  Our Creative Director, Katherine Poole called on our photographer Lee Kriel to pull together elements for a setting featuring our antler inspired pattern Vixen.  Katherine's directive:  think rustic.  lots of textures + natural elements. Here is how they made this reindeer fly!

Katherine selected table runners as our base to allow the wood of the farm table to add warmth.  White napkins keep the look clean and the way Katherine tied up the silverware is casual yet elegant.  

Lee pulled in her fine china.  It's white with a silver rim to which she added vintage sterling flatware and silver goblets for a dressed up look.  Mercury glass ornaments lend a festive dose of sparkle and shine.

Lee also brought in her amber glassware.  The wine glasses paired with the silver goblets are an unexpected eclectic touch that we just adored.  Katherine then layered in Lee's collection of vintage amber bottles to add more brightness.

Katherine added in a pair of antlers that Lee's son found on their family farm and used Lee's collection of heart shaped rocks to secure the menu and place cards on each plate.  

Our floral is a simple bouquet of cabbage and white roses in birch containers.  Katherine tossed a few oranges into the mix for a pop of color.  

Rustic, festive, meaningful.  Ready for a family to gather around and celebrate the season.

How can you pull off a similar look?  Think beyond the dining room.  Use items that have meaning to you: a special collection, an heirloom piece, found objects.  Go outside!  Rocks, twigs, pinecones, berries, and leaves are beautiful additions to any table setting.

Thanks Lee and Katherine for the inspiration!
