Divine Holiday Design – Part Two
The first week of December is when I commit to my holiday decorating, so I have decided to share all of the fabulous design ideas that we presented during our Wine & Design Holiday decorating series this year. On November 10th, we hosted an evening of divine holiday design in both of our stores in Aiken and Atlanta. In Aiken Karin Jeffcoat of Cote Design entertained a packed house with her incredible talent, and in Atlanta I lead our motley crew of designers as we inspired attendees while giving helpful hints on how to create a sublime celebration. Below are some of the tabletops and decor that were created based on the inspired themes of Elegant French Rustic, High Style Holiday Glitter, Whimsical Woodsy Christmas and Traditional Equestrian Chic.
Elegant French Rustic
Elegant French Country is a fabulous combination of rustic burlap (this beautiful ruffled burlap tablecloth was made in our workroom) and Mercury glass accessories along with fresh magnolia (cut from our yards!) and white floral. This look is simple yet so elegant!

We also had these adorable burlap slipcovers made for chairs. The loose ties add that casually elegant feel to the design.
High Style Holiday Glitter
What could be more glamorous than using regal purple, silver, and white in your Holiday design. Here we have taken simple purple glass vases and topped them with white roses and pine. Votive candles, and glass balls are added for sparkle and color.
Whimsical Woodsy Christmas
What a great way to use Christmas elves and stuffed Santas!
Traditional Equestrian Chic
Aiken is an Equestrian heaven on earth, so we take the chic equestrian theme very seriously! At Nandina we design based on real life, so a set equestrian theme doesn’t really exists. It is more about casual elegance, traditional colors and textures, and elements of nature. We started with an incredible twig and iron candle centerpiece and then built it with small tubular vases of red roses, magnolia, and tartan plaid ribbon. It is beautiful and so chic!
