Lenox Gilded Tapestry (Holiday Guide 2012)

I love the holidays and with the holiday season here, I have been in full swing with the holiday shopping! This past year has been a busy one, with weddings, babies and engagements, so when I go through my holiday shopping list, I take all of these events into consideration. Recently, my sister in law got engaged, and with both of her parents gone, we will be doing as much as we can to help her with her wedding. I feel that since she doesnt have a mom to help her plan, that myself and my husband’s siblings are the ones to take that on. One thing that I know a mom does, is not only go along to help pick the dress, but she also helps pick the China pattern.

With my sister in law living nearby and her also being my husband’s youngest sibling out of 9, I have decided to do a lot of the work for her. So when I was given the chance to review the new Lenox China design, Gilded Tapestry, I knew that this would be a design that my sister in law would love. Her wedding will be next Fall, and when I saw this pattern, I felt that this would be a great pattern to represent a Fall wedding theme! I love the colors with the turquoise and golds blended together on the dinner plate on the fine bone China! Then the salad and accent plates with their own unique designs that are different, but at the same time blend together and are made complete with the Can Cup! I love the romantic theme that is woven into a Autumn design, it is so unique and beautiful and it really catches your eyes when you look at the set put together! In know that when we give my sister in law a completed set of the Lenox Gilded Tapestry this holiday season, she will really appreciate it and it will be one more thing that we can check off of her wedding list!

Similar to tapestry-inspired fall fashion looks, this collection is designed for layering. Contrasting and varied patterns share common threads of color and metallic, so layering them together creates an extremely rich and sophisticated effect with zero guesswork about what might go with what. Changing the look of the table from one party to the next would be as simple as changing the color of napkins from bright turquoise to deep copper or espresso. Adding fall blossoms to the table setting (after all October is Lenox’s theme month “Love in Bloom”) such as sunflowers, dahlias, orange calla lilies, copper hued orchids or spider mums in tones of orange and gold will provide yet another layer of delicious drama. This pattern will also set off Thanksgiving décor such as pumpkins and gourds, or a fall fruit bowl of pomegranates, persimmons and golden apples. For the ultimate layering effect: the host or hostess might incorporate a touch of tapestry into their outfit, bringing fashion and style together in a sweepingly romantic gesture.
