I tend to go a bit overboard when it comes to entertaining - and especially when we put together shoots for coco+kelley. I love dreaming up beautiful details for a tabletop, but sometimes all you really need is one really gorgeous centerpiece to set the mood...
I love the way the jewel-tone florals look set against a black tablecloth. The rest is simple - layers of dark dishes, organic details like these wood chargers, gold flatware, and - the finishing touch - those perfect floral napkins.
Now, I know what you're thinking. This 'simple' table is anything but because you've still got to put that centerpiece together. Well, you're out of excuses because this table is one we set for our fall partnership with Starbucks, and over on that site, we've put together a tutorial showing you exactly how to put together this floral arrangement. Yes, really.
And, as florals wane in abundance, you can replace them with plenty of rich colored produce, like golden beets and kale!
