    A Little Extra Sparkle, Design by Forshaw of St. Louis: This glitzy forest place setting doesn’t shy away from sparkle! A white, gray-rimmed dinner plate and 8-inch driftwood plate sit on a gold monstera leaf placemat. A leaf with gold accents act as the name card. To make the setting shine, an elaborate centerpiece adorns the table. The wooden lantern with electric flame candle add height and various sparkling greenery add substance. Large, blue-green flowers with golden sparkles accompany the lantern with faux branches complete with blue buds and sparkling berries.

When the home was first completed, the family’s three children were young, and Tim and Dana Bacich wanted them to be able to enjoy time outside and ride their bikes around the neighborhood.

    Choosing Holiday Garland: A client’s personal preference is always the first consideration for choosing garland in the home. For example, if the scent of Christmas is the priority, then using fresh cedar would be a consideration. Where a garland is to be placed also determines what to use. If on or near fabric, such as silk drapery, I would steer them to artificial garland.
