A Gift Guide: Holiday Dining

My favorite time of year is when I can gather all of the people I love around the table. In Louisiana, we do this all year 'round but there's just something magical about being bundled up in your favorite sweater, the twinkle of lights on the tree and the gentle sound of laughter over a warm, home-cooked meal. I've always loved the simple gesture of making a place setting for someone too; weaving fresh cut conifer down the table, the texture of linen against the wood and an imperfect scratch of their name next to a waiting plate. 

Here are my favorite Holiday Dining essentials for this year. I hope you enjoy these beautiful items made by all of these talented makers!
