Athena Calderone, creator of the fabulous lifestyle blog Eye Swoon and guest contributor for Refinery29, has created some holiday table settings that will leave a hostess weak in the knees.

Calderone admits that her passion for holiday decoration often causes her to "fall down the rabbit hole" searching for a way to make her vision to come to life. This year, she achieves the perfect balance of elegance and approachability, sophistication and simplicity, with her latest tablescape.

Calerone's design consists of a rich, wintery palette of crimson, everest green and burnt orange, accented with wood, brass and black ceramic. She got crafty with her materials, using fruit and leafy greens as accessories (pomegranetes and citrus) and added a touch of whimsy with rolled-up quotes and affirmations tied with a bow. It will definitely be an inspiration for last-minute Christmas planning.
