It’s Easy Being Green
Embrace the cooler colors of the fall and winter seasons without falling into an old-fashioned holiday rut by putting a refreshing spin on your tabletop – This silver, green and cream color scheme is perfect for a casual luncheon or dinner party, and the Louisiana-centric oyster accents are perfect for local flair. Small autumn accents such as leaves and acorns are timely and charming. Holiday settings don’t have to be gilded and heavy – embrace the whimsical side of the season!
