If you’re planning on hosting the holiday feast this Christmas, the table should be as memorable as the menu. Once you’ve figured out your holiday centerpiece (and decided what you’re serving), it’s down to the plates, linens and other holiday table decor. Fortunately, Rustan’s knows exactly how to help you with your decorating, with a little help from a master tablescapist and some of the finest brands for your table spread.

Rustan’s, in partnership with Shangri-La Plaza, recently presented “The Art of Tablescaping,” an exhibit featuring artistic tablescapes styled by Rustan’s for the Arts artists with tableware and accessories from the Home brands.

The exhibit highlighted prints, sculptures and paintings by Paulina Luz Sotto, Tara Soriano and Caress Banson.
