“We always serve Thanksgiving dinner in the formal dining room on Michael’s grandmother’s china,” Sikes says. Mark and Michael’s Top Hints for Giving Your Home a Natural Touch for the Holidays For Thanksgiving, we make some subtle alterations to our green-and-white theme. The eucalyptus stays, and the white orchids get scaled back in the dining room. We place white pumpkins of all sizes on the dining table, and we add myrtle topiaries and lots of mercury glass: votives, vases, hurricanes, and bowls. The mercury glass vases are filled with green and white veronicas and stars-of-Bethlehem. The kitchen is also touched up for Thanksgiving, with potted herbs, rosemary topiaries, and white Astier de Villatte bowls filled with pears, clementines, and apples. We find that the combination of green-and-white flowers and herbs in terra-cotta pots with our Astier de Villatte and blue-and-white Spode collections creates a perfect kitchen scene for the holidays. At Christmastime, we take it a step further. The white pumpkins and myrtle topiaries are dismissed, the mercury glass sticks around, and we add potted paperwhites, potted white amaryllis, and lots and lots of potted Christmas trees in varying sizes. These simple and chic decorations, mixed with plenty of bayleaf garlands, eucalyptus, and evergreens tied with olive-colored satin ribbon, create a festive and elegant Christmas. 160 Lonny NOVEMBER 2012 2012 NOVEMBER Lonny 161
