Obsession | 12/12/11
Rock your table
Looking to upgrade your entertaining mainstays for the holidays? Add some shimmer to your table by serving cheese and fruit on semiprecious materials, such as Anthropologie’s Elysian platter, right, made from gold-dipped quartz or chalcedony, $378. For an earthier look, Jayson Home sells petrified wood trays, top, which are polished to a smooth shine and come in 6”, 7.5” or 10” diameters, $65 - $148. For a lovely hostess gift, pick up these agate coasters from Susan Fredman at Home, bottom, $65 for a set of four.
