holiday tables: christmas breakfast

Yesterday I had the chance to style a series of holiday tables. I like tabletops to be fast + easy to assemble so I've created several ideas using seasonal fruit as centerpieces. Luckily, John Valls of Altura Studio was around to photograph them.

This table is meant for a Christmas breakfast. I gathered tangerines, kumquats, and snipped the flowers off some paperwhites for an untraditional, but still seasonal look.The favors are lemon curd + and if you'd like my great-grandmother's recipe, you can find it here.

I hope you enjoy. More to come soon!

  1. i love this, chelsea. i especially love this for christmas because my mom, without fail, puts oranges or tangerines or clementines into the bottom of my stocking every single year. . .

  2. Yes! Oranges and mandarines are such a big part of Xmas for our family! Be that in a bowl, studded with fragrant cloves or sliced and added to mulled wine – they are great!

    Thanks for sharing this decorative tip. Will definitely include a table setting with these orange treasures!
