Published Nov 28, 2021 9:30 am

Already planning your Christmas gathering, noche buena, tablescaping and everything else in between? Make your Christmas affairs extraordinary with fine touches and thoughtful details like a special concocted holiday drink infused with Nespresso’s Forest Coffee variations.

Dress up your tables to make your holiday feasts look and feel more festive. Here’s something to help you elevate this year’s holiday festivities: celebrity event, set and interior stylist Jo Claravall shares tips on the art of table-styling to help you prepare for the holidays.

The gifts of the forest

This holiday, Nespresso launched their annual limited-edition Festive collection of coffees and Festive-infused accessories in collaboration with Colombian fashion designer Johanna Ortiz. Aptly called “Gifts of the Forest,” the enchanting range is inspired by the beauty and depth of nature’s forests and encapsulates the brand’s devotion to the precious environment coffee is grown in.

Nespresso's Gifts of the Forest Coffee: Forest Black, Forest Almond, and Forest Fruit

Explore and wander the Forest Variations coffees: Forest Black, a woody and spicy espresso; Flavour, a flavored espresso that carries juicy berry aromas; and Flavour, which holds a sweet, nutty taste.

Also within the limited-edition range, find delightful and inspiring gifts for family and friends: countdown in style with the Advent Calendar and allure with the organic-cotton tote bag, decorated with the signature Nespresso x Johanna Ortiz pattern showcasing sweeping forest canopies and capturing the true essence of the forest.

Adding more reason to get inspired in gifting this festive season is knowing that Nespresso is giving back to the forest. The brand goes beyond its agroforestry commitments by partnering with Conservation International to help in protecting 10 million trees in the Amazon.

A festive tablescape

Created in partnership with Nespresso Philippines, a virtual affair entitled “The Art of Tablescaping With Jo Claravall” was held among Nespresso Club members with a two-part program that gave appreciation to the limited-edition Festive coffees and brought to table the forest’s beauty.

To showcase and further appreciate the hidden wonders of the limited-edition Forest Variations coffees, a masterclass was first held by Nespresso Philippines Coffee Ambassador JR Abril which was capped off with a recipe for Salted Caramel Forest Black—an easy and delicious holiday drink you can serve during your holiday feasts using the limited-edition festive coffee collection.

A table styling experience was held afterward by Jo Claravall. With 19 years of experience under her belt, Claravall is one of the most sought-after event stylists with an exclusive clientele that includes celebrities, socialites and corporations. In the event, Claravall shared her styling foundation and trade secrets on how to achieve tasteful, polished, and exceptional holiday-themed table-setting which is best completed with a coffee corner, giving access to the Forest Variations coffees.

With a centerpiece being the heart of every table setting as told by Claravall, guests were sent beautiful boxes containing dried grass and berries, succulents, fresh cypress leaves, pine cones, and more to spruce up table settings. Following a no-waste practice, the box served as the foundation of the centerpiece with embedded floral foams, making it simpler to install the decorative plants. Excess or cut-off stems were suggested to be part of the finishing touches.
