I love that people are still paying attention to this. While its not such an everyday thing for me to set a table exactly to these standards, I still set a formal table for holidays. This seems to be a forgotten tradition that can make any table, even if its not set with bone china, silver cutlery, and crystal, feel a little fancier.
Christmas? take the thanksgiving dishes away and I think it looks quite handsome for a Christmas dinner too. Love the earth tone neutrals and the feathers. There are already ornaments on the table for the Christmas look. Sprinkle some fake snow on thte white table cloth and it would be breathtaking in a homey kind of way.
