Entertaining Elements: Setting a Green & Gold Table

Dinner party season approaches. That means polishing the silver and updating your friends' addresses. But it also means the fun stuff, like choosing table settings and coming up with decorations. I love a table that feels special and festive, but not stuffy or overly fussy. Here, cool greens mix well with the warmth of gold, and varied prints keep it lively. If you get too giddy from champagne, the worn wood table will bring you back down to earth.
