vintage linens How to Create a Table Setting With a Global Christmas Look pillow covers floral

The holiday season has a special meaning for me because my family is?from Germany, Mexico and the United States, and over the years?our celebrations have included?a wide variety of?traditions. Adapting to different cultures and their customs?is just part of who we are!

For example, one year for Thanksgivingvintage linens, we gathered in Mexico City with a mix of people from all over the world and discovered how great curry tastes with turkey; this is something we’ve now adopted in our own Thanksgiving traditions.

One fun way I’ve found to honor the experiences we’;ve had and traditions we’;ve learned?is by partnering with World Market, a brand I’ve loved for years. When you walk into a World Market store during the holidays, you’;ll see?items from all over the world. The wide selection helps me mix old and new international traditions with those stemming from our time living in Mexico, German and the United States.

I’ve gathered a group of stunning items and created?a?table setting that celebrates Christmas from around the world.?When we lived in Mexico, we had wicker ornaments that looked like snowflakes, so I found twine and crystal ones that brought me back to those Christmas celebrations. I?also chose?poppers, which have been a part of my family’;s traditions for generations; they’;re filled with silly toys and a paper hat that adds a joyous touch to our table.?I chose plates that looked handmade and brass lanterns that reminded me of my travels to Morocco and San Miguel de Allende. A tribal napkin finishes up the international theme of the celebration. As a final touch, I used olive branches as a nod to California – the place I consider home today.

We came across this coupling of essential quotes when we were poking around John Zernings blog about Garden Trellises and Architectural Space Frames.

Summer calls for a lot of things—a lazy afternoon swing in the hammock with a great book, romantic picnics under the stars, ice cream socials with friends—but tops on our list is one-piece ease. Think a simple sundress, or a roomy tote bag that goes from the office to the beach and on road trips with equal aplomb. So as the temperatures start their inevitable climb toward midsummer, we’re reaching for the ultimate plus-one in sleeping comfort: the bedspread.

Because I’ve written this blog for over five years, I’ve been blessed to receive hundreds of?emails from readers sharing with me their biggest decorating struggles.
