Festive Open House Buffet

Handy decanters and elegant stacks of fruit, nuts and figs encourage guests to gather in the kitchen.

Twigs and greenery offer a subtle tribute to the season. This light, white-painted kitchen was styled after a 19th-century U.K. pantry. Art and jewelry advisor Brett Sherlock designed the farmhouse-style, glass-topped trestle table to keep the look casual.
