Houzz Gifts: Set an Organic Glam Table
Sprinkle some glitz around natural pieces for a holiday table that's as festive as it is feel-good
Put together an organic glam holiday tabletop with a mix of rough-hewn and polished items from Houzz, carefully blended and balanced by interior designer Elena Calabrese. A mix of pinecones and glitter, reclaimed wood and gold, feathers and glass, natural horn and neon green gives the table a whimsical, woodsy vibe that works for Christmas dinner, New Year’s Eve or any big celebration.
