Sweet Persimmons and Black Licorice were the inspiration for this intimate and dramatic holiday dinner served at dusk. I’m ready for three of the coolest people I know to arrive. Read how simply it all came together.
A bird’s eye view of the sweetest of tables.
A lit pom pom and jute garland lay down the middle of the table and cascaded over the sides and onto the floor to lead the guests to the table.
Candles upon candles upon candles in brass and mercury glass candlesticks were set in and out of the pom pom garland.
Grey stoneware shallow bowls from Crate and Barrel were topped with a linen napkin from Fog Linen and flatware from Juliska. A persimmon at each place setting was a sly nod to the dessert that evening.
All is right with the world when I can wear this plaid maxi skirt from Shabby Apple. I topped it with a bird emblazoned sweater from J.Crew outlet and my favorite black ski hat from Moncler. The fab faux fur jacket in the image prior is from French Connection and is TO DIE FOR!
