Suzanne Kasler’s Very Merry Tablescape

After collaborating with us on her signature holiday collection for the past three years, we know just how much interior designer Suzanne Kasler loves Christmas. Her holidays are filled with meaningful traditions, both new and old, and she graciously shares her inspired decorating tips with us year after year.

This season, Suzanne is one of a select group of interior designers and retailers presenting exquisitely decorated tablescapes at the Atlanta History Center throughout December. The multi-cultural event, Passport to Celebrations, reflects more than 20 holidays celebrated around the world.

Suzanne showcases Christmas in a magnificent tablescape decorated exclusively with products from Ballard Designs—and we have the first-look photos. Her design has that simple “undecorated” look we love about her interiors—it’s the way the holidays should be. Using her signature white, she layers in glistening accents in silver and bronze, natural textures and joyful pops of color with her classic ball ornaments.

Once again, Suzanne has managed to inspire us to try something different in our holiday décor. Excuse us while we go hunting for some branches to hang….

What do you think? Share your thoughts in the comments below. For more information about Passport to Celebrations, visit the Atlanta History Center website. The installation is on display through December 30th.
