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!

I’ve always associated orange scent with winter holidays and this blue & orange table creates the perfect picture!

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!
