The 4 part series Holiday Table Blog Hop comes to an end with the fun modern setting designed by Irene and Chiara from One O. If you remember my holiday table design then you’ll know that I was also a fan of using pastels this year as did these lovely ladies.

Here’s what they say about their design inspiration:

Hands up who loves pastel colors? Oh yes because our festive table decor is totally down that lane: inspired by abstract 80s patterns and tweaked through our unicorn thinking minds, this table is both bold and delicate, bold and soft, striking at your eyes but warm at your heart. Beware traditional Christmas green and red decor lovers, we’re turning your world upside-down.. And we think you might like it 😉
