All of the beautiful and festive tablescapes that dance around our social media feeds this time of year are one of our favorite parts of the holiday season! So we were thrilled when we got the chance to partner with food and flower enthusiast Christina Brockman of Huckleberry Collective on a styled Christmas dinner photoshoot featuring Birmingham, Alabama’s Gourmet-To-Go favorite Ashley Mac’s delicious holiday menu.

For her tablescape design, Christina was inspired by the fresh take on the traditional Christmas feel of Dogwood Hill’s Pears and Thistle Invitation. The invitation features artwork by Dogwood Hill artist Sarah Robbins Powell. Christina’s vision created a tablescape that seamlessly married timeless and modern looks. We love the mix of silver flatware with the marbled gold chargers and ceramic pears she chose at each place setting!

The pear place cards and menus at each place setting also come from our Pears and Thistle holiday collection.

We would be remiss if we did not mention the beautifully unique swan floral arrangment! Christina put her green thumb to work gathering limelight hydrangeas, dahlias, ranunculus, antique garden roses, lisianthus, and pepper berry to pull off an organic and sophisticated centerpiece.

Rounding out this elegant Christmas dinner are the delectable items from Ashley Mac’s holiday gourmet-to-go menu such as the garlic rosemary beef tenderloin, twice baked mashed potatoes, and brown sugar green beans.

Ashley Mac’s strawberry jam cheese ball, pecan pie, and mini red velvet cupcakes also make for the perfect holiday party additions.

We hope this lovely holiday table inspires you as it does us to dust off your fine china and begin setting the table for all of the family holiday gatherings to come during this special celebratory season!
