Chez Christenson (aka Vikingshem aka our house) was a slice of bliss for our very favorite holiday of the year: THANKSGIVING! We hosted our 9th annual Friendsgiving. Inspired after a trip to Blue Hill at Stone Barns Restaurant in New York, I began my Thanksgiving table madness in the early summer. The cream colored ceramic plates with the organic deep brown edges were actually used at Blue Hill (designed by Mondays and I was able to purchase them from the Blue Hill Market ( I decided to mix it up this year with a second set of insanely gorgeous black plates by Eric Bonnin Ceramics ( which I found at Spartan Shop

I obsessively hunted down the most perfect Laguiole cutlery with black and brass handles, and accented with black linen napkins from Dot and Army which I found on one of my favorite CURATED sites: Food 52 ( And I could not resist the brass touches from the coolest napkin rings from West Elm (  The table was anchored with the perfect shade of grey linen table cloth from Crate and Barrel (

Of course, cozy grey Icelandic Sheep Skins from DWR ( gave us the feel of fall as draped a bench and a few chairs.

The table was the perfect setting to share a loving and delicious meal with my most treasured friends.
