Weekly Table Setting: Christmas Is Coming!

This week's setting has impeccable timing - the crisp, snowy whites shown here in the Alessi All-Time dinnerware collection are about to embody our greater outdoor environment as well - the season's first winter storm is on it's way! This year it already feels like the depths of winter are upon us, though the the first big snow of each season really seals the deal. And while it's not actually winter yet, it sure feels like it, and soon we'll be digging ourselves out of the fluffy white stuff.

With the snow comes the holiday season, and this table is another example of just how festive you can get with a few key decorative notes. Here, we've chosen a poinsettia (from Hallie's Flower Garden!) and just a touch of greenery, which really brightens up an otherwise subtle setting. The individual items in each place setting, while subtle in color, have plenty of design and pattern to add extra intrigue. The short glasses have intricate etched designs, while the flatware handles have a lovely, soft sparkle.
