Another sensational table!!! Hope your Holidays are everything you could wish for. The very,very best for 2012 (OMG already??)

I just have two words for you

absolutely gorgeous!

Celebrate in style. That can only mean Eddie & Jaithan! Gorgeous! Love all the details.

Thank you for all the wonderful inspiration and for your friendship. I look forward to meeting you in 2011. (Yes, I plan to join you on one of your upcoming flea market trips -- the very next one in NY!).

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas!

Warm hugs to you both,


Must be close to Christmas...I am home making Jane's coffee cake, 1964 NYTimes recipe, you have to try it. recipe on my blog. Wish you were next door so I could bring some over! I love you guys! Merry Christmas!

Wishing you and Jaithan a Happy Holiday Season!
Happy New Year and sending much joy and prosperity for 2011!! See you next year!

What a beautiful floral display for the holidays. I love the nontraditional pink colors and very feminine touches to this party decor. I came across your post this morning while browsing interior design blogs and your take on interior décor is exquisite. Window treatments, especially like the drapes in the first picture, can also bring out hidden beauty in a banquet hall with very tall ceilings. It is true that you must dress your windows appropriately to bring out their true beauty. Thank you for writing and as a special thanks to you and your readers, I would like to offer a 20% off coupon using this code upon checkout: BLG20.

Aw - fun! Wish I could be there.

Merry Christmas boys!


LOVE the Quadrille fabric…one of my favorite patterns. All the pink really makes the table pop! So beautiful!

Beautiful table settings- I love all the pink!

Beautiful! I'm falling in love with this blog quickly!
And thanks for using and mentioning a Kansas City company - Creative Candles are awesome.

I have been blessed
by Elizabeth's friendship,
too and can imagine that
anything she is involved
in is going to be done with
100% {pink!} heart. This
looks like a lovely event
in every way, since really,
LOVE is in details and they
were superb. Big hugs to
you and Jaithan, Eddie!

I was so sad I couldn't join in the fun...it looked like is was an AMAZING time. I love all of the pink touches (are you sure you all didn't consult with Pantone when they came out with their color of the year???:) Merry Christmas!

I love the fabric-modern & feminine, that rarely happens. Lovely.

What an absolutely amazing tablescape! I of course love the touch of the monogrammed napkins. We hope you will stop by the Metis Linens booth at the Long Beach flea market in January as we always feature French flavored refreshments and can offer a small token for everyone in your group.

Wow. Another table beautifully done. Just lovely.

As usual, you two outdid yourself yet again!!!!

Stunning! LOVE the holly detail--unexpected! So gorgeous, y'all :)

Such a gorgeous table with the pink. It inspires to so start using a few of the many sets of dishes that I have.

Oh yes. Pink is my signature color and it is so nice to see a Christmas table that moves away from red and green.

Eddie & Jaithan
I have so enjoyed your blog this year with all its beautiful inspiration. I look forward to your wonderful posts in 2011 and anxious to see what you do with that new honeysuckle color! Have a wonderful holiday.

'PRETTY..ness IN PINK'! Very inpsiring and especially refreshing. -Brenda-

Beautiful and I love the unexpected pink at Christmas time. Merry Christmas, Kriste.

Absolutely lovely...pink goes with every holiday and every season (well maybe not Saint Patrick's Day)! And love that you use so much vintage in your decor! Happy Happy Holidays, Danielle

E & J- I cannot tell you how much I love this color combination. Your finishing touches are exquisite.

Everything looks so beautiful and Elizabeth is one of my favorite blogging buddies. Don't you guys have so much fun shopping in so many different venues.? That would be heaven for me. We sold the little bar cart that you wanted when you were in Little Rock this weekend. It made me think of you. Merry Christmas! Mona

Wow, looks nice! I've been at a party this weekend as well, but a very un-glamorous one, one for kids ;) The kids were very happy about it though and so was I since I received the most lovely gift from another parent, a beautiful enamel sign from http://www.ramsign.com

Wow, those are some amazing tablescapes and I love how you embellished the candles with holly. Where did you find so many embroidered napkins? Love them!

Boy that's pretty. Now I'm rethinking my entire Christmas dinner table... thanks for that.

Merry Christmas you two!!

Hello Eddie -- this table it BEAUTIFUL, I love seeing a big wave of pink this time of year. The contrast of the turquoise candles and the holly really just makes it perfect!

Happy holidays!

Do you wear "readers"?? I love my "restaurant readers", which have little LED lights embedded in them, I'm giving a pair away for the holidays..stop by the market to enter!

Absolutely gorgeous! I love the hot pink, and the chairs are pink! Fabulous.

Gorgeous! Love the pink. I am totally crushing on it right now.
Merry Christmas Eddie and Jaithan!

So gorgeous, though this event kept me from seeing you on the last trip north. Shack was just saying last night how long it's been since we've seen you. Happy holidays in the new house!

I love the pink roses with the holly. I will be copying this one!

Looks like a beautiful event and a fantastic table. Wish I could have been there. Happy Holidays to you both!

Dear E & J -

I don't know how you do it, but you manage to keep creating my newest favorite tablescapes. This one is so, so, so beautiful! I just love everything about it - for starters, your color palette. Also the mix of old and new, the Quadrille fabric, the Christmas ornament placecards, the variegated holly in with the pink flowers... I just want to gaze at it over and over again (and I WILL!)

Thank you and happy holidays!

Eddie & Jaithan, it was a remarkable day....filled with joy, laughter and great ideas!!!

Where will your adventures take us next?!
love, Elizabeth

The event was perfection in every way! Loved it lots and also loved that I have the same Coalport China as you two handsome fellas! Grateful to Elizabeth for organizing and hosting such a lovely afternoon.

Very pretty, Eddie & Jaithan! I am sure the people who attended the event were charmed and enchanted. Reggie

The colour scheme is fantastic as usual Eddie and I love the plates Jaithan found!
Thank you for all the links for the individual pieces - what a resource.

It all looks heaven and I love that you have incorporated 'honeysuckle pink' the new pantone darling for 2011!

Happy rest of the weekend and thank you for your sweet comment today. I agree with you on the dog.! :)

xx Charlotta

It's simply gorgeous - stunning!

You have managed to do something innovative while still including tradition and holiday details. Amazing.

I wish I still lived in Westchester! I definitely would have found a way to attend ;-)

Great job! Gorgeous event again...And I agree totally about blogging friendships!I am so glad to have met you through blogland, your visits to Design Love and comments mean so much!
Happy Holidays to you both!

Hi, Eddie & jaithan! What a fantastic event and that table setting is just jaw-dropping gorgeous. Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays to you both! xoxo rhoda

It must have been pure delight for everyone who attended this very special event. The table setting you created provides wonderful inspiration -- love the perfectly balanced mix of vintage and modern! The colors are fresh and exciting, and the tips about creating holly bobeches and removing berries to avoid poisoning holiday guests are invaluable. Thank you, Eddie, for the joy and creative energy you share all year 'round.

Wishing you and Jaithan the happiest of holidays!

Bill @ Affordable Accoutrements

Your table setting are by far the BEST. You two are not only utterly adorable and handsome but you match your table settings. Constantly inspire me. Ann xo

Amazing table setting and I love those pink chavari chairs. Great colors and very clever use of holly in the floral arrangements.

Gorgeous! The Quadrille fabric is beautiful with the dinnerware and floral arrangements. All the small details are fabulous too.

Wishing you a wonderful holiday!


Beautiful! The china plates look so much like coalport Indian Tree...I happen to have a whole packing box full of them...my grandmas.

Stunning! All of it! It really was such a lovely event, and I fully enjoyed revisiting your gorgeous table inspiration here. Will be using spatulas as stencils this week, as my children and I decorate the sugar cookies!

Merry Christmas to both of you. I will be thinking of you as I prepare Christmas Eve dinner for both sides of our family. 30 in all :)
Best to you...

You even had pink CHAIRS!!!!!!!!!!!! OMG, this is so beautiful! The arrangements are perfection! Love the holly around the candles too. The fabric runners are beautiful, Awesome job, Eddie!!!! Pinky

beyond stunning with a great twist on tradition.
and yes elizabeth is indeed one of the shining stars in our blogger world
merry christmas dear eddie and jaithan

Gorgeous as usual! I can't wait to see your new home!

Well said Eddie, about how real blogging friendships are to us. What a lovely holiday table. I am partial to pink and the plates Jaithan found are so pretty. The roses and holly and pink balls strewn on the table, divine. I love those runners too...nothing I don't love actually! Hot pink dining room chairs~the best! Happy Holidays to you both!

You are masters of making any color combination perfect for any occasion. Who would thing pink & blue for the Holidays.

Eddie, you are my present every day!

I hope you, Jaithan and your families have a wonderful holiday.


This is beautiful..and being from the south "bring on the monograms" great post+pictures.

Elizabeth is the best - and I haven't even met her in person yet! I wasn't able to attend the event but everything looked beautiful and it sounds like it was a rousing success. My hat off to the both of you!

Eddie, this tablesetting is gorgeous. So pretty and pink. You were a trendsetter with the new pink even before Pantone announced honeysuckle pink the color for 2011!!! You are always ahead of the cusp!!! I love the table linens so lovely and like I said, just pretty in pink!!! xo to you and Jaithan, Kathysue

PS I just got through polishing a silver compote and was thinking how much you would love it!!!!

Toasting you with a single malt scotch from camp miola. Thank you again for bringing Creative Candles to the celebration. Seasons Greetings from your friends in the Midwest.

What an amazing event! I love the tablecoth fabric and the place settings. So inspiring!!

abby (formerly of abby & her boys)

simply love the tapers with holly. what a great idea. beautiful!

and the pink balls as place cards! loving pink for xmas these days.

Dear Eddie and Jaithan,
You inspire me everytime I come here. I love it. I love the colours too as my theme this year is gold, purple and pink and I will be stealing your ideas for the candy (I'm ahead on napkins and charger plates at the moment!)

I have never met you, but when I speak about you I say 'Oh Eddie did this today' or 'Jaithan left a comment on my blog'!

Thank you so much for popping by this year and leaving me some lovely comments. I wish you both a wonderful Christmas and a prosperous and fun New Year - I have no doubt that it will be!


Hi E & J, I was b eginning to wonder what you were up to... but you did not disappoint!!! Once again a holiday table, I can only hope to recreate some day, but you always inspire me to keep looking for vintage (even just "old") glass weare etc. "Thanks to you" I have been lucky to find some pretty fantastic sets of glass... still on the lookout for some pretty, old, colorful plates!
One day... one day my pantry will looks as well planned and well stocked like yours :-)!!!!!!

Have a wonderful holiday as well,
Northern Light

It is all too festive! My favorite pics are those of the monogramed napkins and the last image of you, Jaithan and Ms. Elizabeth, so charming. Thank you guys for being a joy and a bright spot in everyone's lives. Merry Christmas.

A very pretty pink event for Elizabeth and her pretty pink tulips! Merry Christmas E&J!
xo Cathy

As usual the table is beyond gorgeous. You have a real knack for making something fabulous. I look forward to your magazine articles, tv appearances and of course the blog. Merry Christmas. Maybe this next year will be the year I get to meet you and Jaithan.

Everything looks so beautiful. Loving all that pink (you were ahead of Pantone!) and is so apropo in light of Elizabeth's blog title. Hope you're both doing well during this busy time of year. XO Michele

Thanks for sharing. Everything's beautiful. Inspiring, as usual! Merry Christmas, Eddie.
