A Tale of Two Tablescapes:

A Winter’s Night

For the first tablescape, “A Winter’s Night,”Woeller was inspired by Dutch still-life paintings. In this design, cooler tones unite with neutral browns to create a calming core. The mixture of neutral solids with green and blue prints, like the leafy green tablecloth and blue block printed napkins, perfectly balance one another in this detailed look. The tablecloth, a fabric available through Summerland’s studio, creates an overarching earthy feel while artistically grounding the table setting. Surrounding the table, the blue wicker chairs with printed pillows extend the design. The antique brass candlesticks add an historic, traditional charm, while tiger shell napkin rings and salt and pepper shakers bring a touch of sea life and an unexpected accent. The moody-toned floral arrangement by Blossoms of Cape Cod serves as a gorgeous centerpiece, with a Chinese vase tying into the patterned plates. The bamboo silverware and wicker place card holders create additional earthy accents. Various light bites and a charcuterie board, catered by Helen Ventouris of Three Sisters Catering, are positioned around the setting to complete the presentation, readying it for a cozy gathering. Over at the fireplace, (pictured on the previous page) the Dutch still-life inspiration continues in this warm nook, complete with evergreen mantel arrangements, a pear-filled bowl, and a miniature holiday tree in a wicker stand. Camilla Richman Fine Arts provided both paintings featured in the home, perfect for the historic Cape winter aesthetic. In designing this setting, Woeller aspired to reflect the historic aura of this Orleans home with the Dutch inspiration and antique accents. To replicate these design elements, many of the pieces displayed are available for purchase in Summerland’s shop. This tablescape creates the perfect backdrop for a winter’s night by the fire.

For a fresh take on holiday decorating, incorporate earthy tones with your classic red and white.
