There is no doubt that the first time you see a pomegranate shrub heavy with beautiful crimson colored fruit you will be inspired. Sure, you'll use the sweet tangy arils to garnish cocktails and add color to a dish, but what about using the fruit itself to inspire your table decor.
Here's what to do:
For the Centerpiece (above): Split open several pomegranates and arrange on saucers or platters down the table. Tuck in white spray roses, red hypericum berries, holly, Christmas greens or rosemary—accent with unscented votive or taper candles and you’ll be asked to host every future family gathering.
For the Place Setting (above): The pomegranate ruby hues are the perfect foil for holiday tables. Pair our Charcoal Linen Napkin Set (as seen) with red toile china, cranberry glass or the Spode Christmas pattern your mother-in-law gave you that you’ve still yet to unbox. For a personalized touch that doubles as a gift, set each place with an oyster ornament that can be personalized for a festive place card (these adorable ornaments were custom made for this table using vintage paper napkins. Order your custom ornaments by contacting Sydney Kiefner firstname.lastname@example.org)
For the Recipe: Pair the tart arils with mint and parsley for a delicious relish that can be spooned over sliced pork or served alongside your holiday turkey...it's also AMAZING spooned over tacos!
