Heritage Series: Gullah Christmas Tablescape Inspiration

One of my favorite things to showcase my heritage and culture is decorating my tables. I keep 3 styled tables in my home and my favorite one to decorate is in my office. This year I chose a Gullah Christmas tablescape for my office holiday decor.

Add Layers for Texture: Don’t be afraid to use various shades of colors, textures, and fabrics on your table. Indigo was a large cash crop on the Sea Islands of South Carolina and Georgia coast and still remains a staple in decor in the region, all of which traces its roots to the Gullah community.

Oysters For a Centerpiece: Oysters are a huge part of Gullah cuisine and the economy. I chose these 3 oyster trees to be my centerpiece for my Gullah Christmas tablescape paired with a few oyster shaped bowls.
