Have a McQueen Christmas

Uncategorized November 29, 2010

This spectacular table scape was inspired by the whimsical macabre mind of Alexander McQueen’s most recent fashion line.  His curious juxtaposition is embodied by the ephemeral floral accents and butterflies against the striking  black backdrop. This one of a kind holiday table is less traditional to say the least, but it teaches effective lessons of table decor.  First, the center piece should integrate living components like seasonal flowers, evergreen, moss, even water.  Also, at each setting try including  personal touches like menus, family heirlooms, ornaments, or mementos for your holiday guests.  Keep the colors warm and simple while maintaining the theme of your overall holiday decor. Don’t go over the top with traditional colors, the red and greens, try warmer colors like mauve, rose gold, even white. Happy decorating!
