Tabletop Tuesday: Under The Olive Branches

By Brooke Shepard, Posted on August 09 2022

With the summer sun sinking into the horizon, Brooke joined friends under the olive branches for an incredible Tuscany inspired evening.

The talented women behind Habitual Hostess designed this dreamy tablescape, along with family and friends. Brooke added beautifully stitched linens that featured an olive branch design. Green block print placemats were accented by an artichoke centerpiece, wooden boats of salty olives, woven napkin rings, and a textured but neutral tablecloth. All of the gorgeous details stood out during the magic of the “golden hour” under the olive branches.

One of the most thoughtful hostess gifts, in our opinion, is something that becomes a treasured keepsake. Gifting a set of monogrammed linens leaves hosts with a reminder of the celebrations shared with family and friends. With that in mind, Brooke stitched the olive branches with the hope that the hostess could use them for future evenings under the olive branch covered pergola in her own backyard.
