Table Love by Pinky collaborated with West Elm and created a fun, elegant, and posh Christmas holiday installation in West Elm at Central Square, BGC.

Tablescaping has been my passion, which is why I’ve created Table Love by Pinky—a collection of luxurious tablescapes that I make for friends and family. And this holiday season, I was privileged to work with West Elm to create a fun and elegant Christmas holiday installation in their Central Square Mall branch at Bonifacio Global City.

Wildlife Meets Holiday Cheer

Since the American brand is known for its trendy and experimental pieces, we were inspired to be a little adventurous with our concept. Thus, our holiday table used a lot of wildlife-inspired pieces—over polished golds and fiery reds

To start it off, we created a suspended installation of mistletoes and beautiful turquoise peacock ornamentshanging down the wreaths—to set the Christmas mood. Tell me: what is more whimsical than having these flightless birds hovering over the dinner table? This is sure to be a conversation starter!

As for the holiday table, a centerpiece of glass mercury trees and golden starburst ornaments added a touch of sparkle to a bed of crimson flowers. This exuded Christmas cheer and at the same time, elegance. Add to that a lot of red taper candles, which I believe is very essential, especially if you want your table to have some light and movement.

On the other hand, the dinner setup mainly featured the iconic Dapper plates—designed by American artist, Rachel Kozlowski—which adds more whimsy and class to the setup. These plates showed animals, such as wolves, lynxes, kestrels, and otters, reminiscent of Victorian portraits—very unique pieces, indeed! What’s more, these plates were laid over hammered gold chargers and flatware, which make for a fun and memorable dining experience.

And to further elevate it, we added red linen napkins and menu cards—elegantly sealed with wax and dried flowers. 

A Festive Christmas

Of course, no holiday setup would be complete without the beautiful backdrop of a decked-out Christmas tree that’s full of fabulous ornaments. And with that, a portable butler stand—complete with bar tools such as a gold shaker, ice bucket, and a wine cooler. And this, I’m sure, is a favorite for a lot of adults.

Overall, we had a lot of fun putting this tablescape together—just as much as choosing the pieces, which are very festive and such eye-candy! The best thing is that this tablescape also gave us a ton of fresh gift ideas for the season.

Full-on festive fun starts in West Elm in Central Square, BGC. Discover holiday decorations, Christmas-themed items, and more pieces to love for the years to come. From fool-the-eye faux trees, trendy dinnerplates, ornaments, and more, West Elm is definitely home to a whole lot of gift ideas. It’ll be your most magical season yet!
