The Theme: Classically Elegant Christmas

For three years now, one of our clients has hired us to serve an intimate dinner for his employees. He gives our Chef free reign on the menu and table designs. Perhaps you remember last year’s dinner? This year, he wanted to hearken back to an “olde thyme Christmas”. Our event designer and Chef put their heads together and came up with such a wonderful event.

 

For the centerpieces, our event designer used very natural decorations interspersed with shiny and lustrous elements, including candlelight and twinkle lights.

We wanted the centerpiece to be very full, overflowing with little presents and “hidden items” to give the display some intrigue.  Throughout the table we designed to have votives, strings of lights, pine cones, and Christmas baubles.

For our color scheme we worked off a palette of natural browns, deep reds, and glittery golds.

Setting the Mood With Proper Lighting

With a smaller setting and such an elegant menu, it demands a certain kind of lighting. We try to use candle light where ever possible, and for this dinner we also added strings of lights. The warm light emanating from the centerpiece matched the happiness and excitement that comes during the holiday season.

Even though the setting was very sophisticated and the food divine, our client wanted his guests to relax- he told everyone to come enjoy the dinner in their pajamas!
