Set a picture-perfect table with flea-market silver and your grandmother's hand-me-down transferware dishes in rich cream and chocolate tones. Lavishly strung with garlands of plums, chestnuts, walnuts and cranberries, the chandelier becomes your centerpiece. Let the feasting begin!

Our picks for a perfect holiday table:

Jack Rabbit Hill organic wine

Etched recycled-glass wine decanter and tumblers

Soulshine beeswax candles

Organic French-linen hemstitched napkins
