James Farmer knocked my socks off with this traditional table for Southern Living. L-O-V-E the blue and white porcelain with gorgeous florals and pops of cranberry red. I think this works for any fall/winter celebration, including Christmas.
Check out the beautiful details:

Vintage silver, traditional Spode china mixed with blue and white porcelain, gorgeous linens on a plain wood table. The dimension and texture of this table are just breathtaking...could you imagine walking into this room to eat dinner? I wouldn't be able to focus on the food...and that's saying a lot.
And I adore the clever idea of having some kraft boxes on hand with some ribbon to send folks home with leftovers. Definitely better than my beat up tupperware that I lend out. You'd have a very Martha Stewart moment with your guests if you broke out wrapped packages at the end of the night.
Check out the photos at Southern Living...and there is even a fun video! Great to watch if you want to see more details...
