Holiday Style Makers at FOUND by domestic bliss
Celebrating In Style
This year, our friends at FOUND by domestic bliss kicked off the holiday entertaining season in an amazing way….by inviting eight of their favorite local creatives to join them in the store on November 7th for a very special Holiday Style Makers event! Each of these talented ladies brought their own unique perspective to the ‘holiday table styling challenge’, and was given free rein to use any of the beautiful FbDB products to create their tables…..the results were absolutely stunning!

The Style Makers (seen above) teamed up with local florists Hoot & Holler, Garden Gate and Butterfly Petals to create custom centerpieces for their tables. Each took a slightly different approach, from casual Thanksgiving sit-down to glitzy New Year’s celebration and everything in between!

Visions of sugarplums were flying around everywhere, ribbons and pumpkins and glassware and greenery were all a blur as the final tables were assembled before the big reveal at the Holiday Style Makers Meet + Greet on November 7th.
Meet the Team of Style Makers & See Their Designs:
Sarah Hubbell worked with the Garden Gate floral team to tie their stunning, autumn-inspired florals in with her individual place settings. The oversized rustic serving board inspires visions of a holiday feast fit for a family of any size. We love the sprig of real berries and a petite orange pumpkin at each setting….and of course, the darling mini chalkboards. This spread presents a truly stylish Thanksgiving bounty!

A Midwinter’s Tale
Lush, dramatic greenery dominates the floral arrangements by Hoot & Holler that serve as the inspiration for this wintry table by stylist Fawn DeViney. Envisioning a moody, midwinter book club gathering, Fawn placed elegant black glassware atop a dark table and chairs, leaving the stacks of vintage books and eerie antique mannequin heads to take center stage. Candles and a cozy woven throw help to soften this look and create an atmosphere of welcoming hospitality!

Diamond Troutman was inspired to style her table around the theme of a holiday dinner entre copines (with girlfriends)—the perfect theme for the author of a blog called Paris Elsewhere! We absolutely adore her selections on this intimate and lovely tablescape, from the delicately ruffled pink florals to the ornate placemats by Kitchen Papers…and plenty of good red wine and delicious artisan chocolates within reach, s’il vous plait!

All I Want For Christmas
How tall can a centerpiece be? As tall as your imagination will let it be! Lindsey Holt and Coley Arnold, the fabulous ladies behind Junk in the Trunk Vintage Market, played around with ideas of whimsy and scale on their tablescape. Showcased alongside a variety of Christmas trees in evergreen and driftwood, the addition of a life-sized vintage bicycle is charming and hilarious—it’s kind of like the reverse of finding a bicycle under the tree on Christmas morning! We’re loving their sense of style and fun!

REstyle Recipe: Holiday Cookies
Kim Stoegbauer created a pristine winter wonderland at her table, envisioning a party with ornaments, oversized jingle bells, spools of festive woven ribbon and sweet treats for all! Compact and elegant arrangements of classic roses from Hoot & Holler in winter white create a delightful ambiance, while curly calligraphy place cards and snowflakes help to tie up each place setting in a perfectly tied bow.

Auld Lang Syne
This casual New Year’s Eve dinner tablescape styled by Leah Theodosis perfectly encapsulates the rustic elegance she also showcases at her event rental space, Tremaine Ranch. The stunning floral arrangement by Sarah’s Garden brings together a variety of greens accented by subtle pops of wintry blues, a theme echoed by the lovely blue glassware at each place setting. We can never resist a set of natural linen napkins and simple woven placemats, and the organic lines of this Cantaria dishware are the perfect accompaniment.

And a Happy New Year!
Ibie Falcusan’s festive party table is picture-perfect and ready to celebrate a glamorous New Year’s Eve. We’re especially loving the way those exuberant florals by Garden Gate almost seem to explode from their container like a firework, perfect for one of the sparkliest nights of the year! Rows of gold-wrapped sparkling wine stand at attention behind classic gold-rimmed champagne coupes, all ready to ring in the new year. Count us in, Ibie!
