Today’s tablescape provides a sneak peek into one of my favorite chapters in my upcoming book, A Loving Table. The book, co-authored by the talented Shelley Johnstone Paschke, is filled with examples of the traditions that we carry forward from our families. This Christmas table was set by the amazing Bettie Pardee at her home in Newport, RI and is just one of the beautiful details she shares about her holiday festivities. I can’t wait to share more about her traditions with you when the book comes out in March 2022 but, in the meantime, I hope the tablescape she set, with her tree in the background and candle light glow, will inspire.
