Andre's Rainbow Tablescape
As a native Californian living many hours away from my family I knew I would not be able to return home for Christmas this year, so I wanted to go all-out for a small ‘Friendsmas’ gathering. The idea of ‘Fiercely Come Friendsmas’ came from my love of glitz, glamour, colour, disco, and of course the mirror ball characteristic of my favourite Strictly. Leading with Talking Tables’ Rainbow Brights range, I decided to expand on the gold foil accents in the range as a seasonal metallic, using the Luxe Gold range to bring this to life. Our Luxe Gold and Rainbow Bright buntings excitingly complimented paper snowflakes, providing focal levels by creating a ‘ceiling-scape.’ Posters I designed brought the light-heartedness associated with Friendsmas via casual and slightly pun-led slogans. The Luxe Gold table runners atop the Rainbow Bright table cover helped build a fabulous foundation for the accompanying tableware to rest upon. Centrepieces composed of gold-glittered pine cones, gold mirror ball baubles, white branches and our fantastic Bottle Lights helped bring botanical shine to the table. All of these features pointed to the grand marshal of the tablescape: a crafted gold mirror ball Christmas tree that was adored by all.
