The holidays are almost here, so to help you prepare we’d like to share a few of our favorite Southern Instagram accounts that consistently deliver beautiful ways to set a welcoming table, arrange flowers, serve delicious food, and generally live life in style.
Here are a few lessons we learned from their Thanksgiving posts.
Feathers are just as pretty as flowers. South Carolina blogger Olivia Brock’s bouquet of guinea hen and pheasant feathers in lieu of flowers feels rooted in Southern tradition, especially when set against the shine of beautiful silver serving pieces and flatware.
Fancy dessert plates are always a win. New Orleans food photographer and Port au Prince, Haiti, native Martine Boyer plays up old-favorite desserts like sweet potato pie and pumpkin pie on plates that bring serious charm to the table.
Tonal arrangements are really chic. Birmingham, Alabama, event designer and stylist Ginny Au takes the fall centerpiece idea to a whole new level with her post about branches and blooms in the shades of orange, peach, rust, blush, and brown of fallen leaves.
Go green. Georgia interior designer Beth Webb borrowed inspiration from the soothing grey-green hue of her centerpiece gourds for her linens and dishware, too. Mixed with coppery plates and rustic wood, the look is equal parts relaxed and elegant.
Pistil & Stamen
Raid the fruit bowl. The floral designers at Pistil & Stamen in New Orleans add citrus to their fall and winter arrangements and the pop of cheerful color creates an instant farm-to-vase centerpiece.
