This Christmas table setting by Ralph Lauren may be on a coffee table, and it may only have seating for two, but it rivals a great big holiday dinner:Sometimes, especially in a down economy, young couples living far from family find themselves celebrating major holidays as a pair. Older couples might experience something similar with empty nests or living far from family and friends. But that doesn't mean the day can't be special.
This tablescape, designed by Ralph Lauren and featured in House Beautiful, is complete with seasonal holly branches, beautiful dinnerware, candlelight, and red plaid napkins in classic Ralph Lauren style. Placing a meal for two in front of the fireplace keeps things cozy and casual while changing things up from the everyday. What do you think of this holiday tablescape for two?
