Holiday Tabletop by B.D. Jeffries

Since I enjoy looking for creative ideas for holiday decorating, I always look forward to the December issues of my magazines.  This year, I was most impressed with this tabletop design by B.D. Jeffries featured in Atlanta Homes.  This rustic and elegant design is a perfect combination for  my holiday decorating.

This red ribbon on this beautiful mercury pedestal bowl adds just the right touch of color.

These twig trees are fabulous - I might have to find some of these.

The Faux Bois dinnerware  is by Kon-tent.

The glassware has a beautiful shape and the etching adds interest.

If I stacked all of my December magazine issues I have saved over the years for inspiration, it would probably be about three feet high.    While I receive the Veranda and House Beautiful issues online, I still get the hard copy so this pile continues to grow.   Do you have a pile of holiday issues of magazines that you find you can't part with?   

While I have about seven crates of holiday decorations, I now prefer a much more natural look and mostly decorate with fresh greens.  Since our girls are older now and I am not decorating with small children in mind, I prefer "less is more".   I look forward to picking up some greens at the local flower markets this weekend, and start my holiday decorating. 


  1. BD Jeffries is one of my favorite stores to visit in Buckhead. Everything is fabulous!

  2. I really loved Atlanta Home's Dec issue too & this inspiring table setting. I also have a pile of holiday issues I can't part with and just did a post about magazines' coverage of the Holidays. It includes a pic of all my Canadian House and Homes! Just wanted you to know it was so helpful to come across your post back in 12/10 about the 2003 Southern Accents issue and I mentioned it today. Best, Michele

  3. Oh that Faux Bois is to die for! Great pics! xo,
