Manzanita trees can make beautiful Holiday centerpieces. You can really get creative by adding your personal touch. You can decorate them with pearls, crystals, flowers, gift boxes, holiday ornaments, shortbread cookies...you name it.

Displaying gift boxes on a cake stand is another simple and beautiful idea that will add some pizzazz to your Holiday decor.
Here are some stunning table decor ideas for your inspiration. I love each of these ideas - the colourful and joyful modern holiday table, the classic and traditional feel of red and white, the modern rustic charm,  the Parisian urban chic decor, even the organic green look.

"Moulin Rouge" Themed Event

When my dear friend Pamella asked me to help her plan her anniversary party, I knew that Moulin Rouge is a party theme that guarantees excitement, energy and glamour to any special event. Bursting with rich and dramatic colours and sensual ambiance, a Moulin Rouge theme was the perfect choice for this venue. Moriarty's Bistro is the "new kid" on the party block in Edmonton where French flair meets New York savvy in the d├ęcor. Beside the elegant and sophisticated interior, this venue offers a great wine selection and food that will entice your mind and taste buds.
The colour scheme for this event was  black and white with a splash of red. I selected a white Italian satin for the tablecloth with black lace accents. Red roses, ostrich feathers and lace transformed this venue into a cosmopolitan cabaret. Heather de Kok designed the glamorous and breathtaking floral arrangements and Bluebird Cakes created the most elegant cake I've ever seen. Our dessert menu included: salted caramel macarons, shortbread cookies, oreo truffles, white chocolate and raspberry cheesecakes, skor cheesecakes and mini chocolate trifles. It was a fabulous event and I enjoyed planning every detail of it.
