Get The Look- Thanksgiving Style

November 20, 2014

In preparation for Thanksgiving, we have just the perfect post today. Want that perfect look for your tablescape that is sophisticated, yet creative? We know just where to get it! Last week with a group of fabulous pros, DW designed the perfect table setting with DC Rental.

We started with a metallic green salad plate that sat on the stunning pheasant antique dinner plate (that could also be used as a charger!) We put cranberries in mini a twig dish which added the perfect amount of color and organic freshness to the table. The hampshire gold flatware provided a perfect balance with the selected linen but also the  gold accents added the perfect amount of glam…after all out with the old and in with the gold!

The linen we selected is new and very stunning, wait till you feel the velvety texture on this stunning thick and heavy linen, it is goes by the name: Alessandra gold damask linen. We brought in two napkin looks- because one isn’t ever enough…We selected the  herringbone natural napkin and the green hemstitch linen napkin, both paired beautifully with the overall look!

The napkin ring is a district favorite selected from a market in downtown Leeseburg, VA.

The Art of Gift Wrapping

November 18, 2014


There is an art to gift wrapping, but if you want in on the total secret (after all, that’s what “tip Tuesday” is all about!) It isn’t about your talented skills, it is about how beautiful the wrapping paper is! I have just the recommendation for you all!

Haute Papier gift wrap is the perfect way to make your holiday gifts gleam. They offer a variety of styles sold in both sheets and rolls. From shiny foil patterns that pair perfectly with a red velvet bow, to holly patterns and merry messages in cool Christmas tones. While it may be the thought that counts, it’s that perfectly creased corner and lovingly tied bow that any aesthetically obsessed gift-getter will remember!

The best news of all? … you will have to see, later today! We will be posting it on twitter and instagram…only the very best for our readers.
