Modern holiday entertaining ideas

We absolutely adore the concept behind this scene that Shindig Chic dreamed up and Mary Costa Photography captured for us today. It’s all about celebrating winter with an intimate gathering, and not only that, but looking to the year ahead. After styling a holiday tablescape, they headed to the forest for a couple’s shoot that would make the cutest lasting memories of the day.

More on the concept, from Shindig Chic… Winter is one of the most celebratory seasons and a time for endless get togethers, dinners, parties, and weddings too. When it came to styling our own holiday tablescape, we took our major inspiration from winter botanicals. There are so many gorgeous variations of pine and that’s what we wanted to celebrate… We partnered with West Elm LA to bring in the mid century aesthetic that we all love so much and played around with a pop of copper to create a warm metallic feel that played so well with the wood and pine elements

We did a couple’s shoot (featuring our design duo Shindig Chic!) that made for holiday card magic. The Angeles Forest is such an amazing location just far enough from the city but close enough to make a wonderful day trip. The soft lighting, lush pines, and sculptural rocky mountains made for a dreamy backdrop. I wanted the bouquet and floral crown to look natural in our mountain setting and further show our love of pine.

This is such great inspiration for a Holiday table. I am all about using rustic elements and greenery this year and deviating a bit from the typical red and green baubles I always use. Thanks for this post and reminding me to keep things fresh!
