Statement Pieces for Your Holiday Party

Every year when the holidays roll around, I always get asked for some festive decorating tips for holiday parties. One of my favorite things to do is create Statement Pieces as a focal point of any event with small, simple supporting pieces. And intimate gatherings are no exception!

We recently decorated for a Coordinator luncheon at the Balboa Bay Club in Newport Beach. I really wanted to embrace the concept of the use of a Statement Piece along with the colors and feel of the season. Here's what I came up with:

What's the first thing that your eyes go to? Yep, its the center arrangement.

The supporting pieces on either side of the Statement Piece are very simple in monochromatic colors, staggered across the table.

Only 2 of the arrangements had a mix of colors.

And mini pumpkins and gourds were clustered together in groupings throughout as a seasonal accent.

The colors were kept simple: yellow, orange and deep red.

I know its the day before Thanksgiving. So I hope I have inspired you to pull in some fun decor for tomorrow's dinner party!

A special Thank You to Molly of Luminaire Images for capturing such beautiful images of our flowers!
