Vincent and Elizabeth Moro have combined history with nature to stunning effect in seasonal displays at their 1830s farmhouse in Chadds Ford, writes Eileen Smith Dallabrida for Main Line Today.
The Moros, whose passion is entertaining, are in the process of restoring their farmhouse at Chadds Peak Farm. While the house is being renovated, the barn is the perfect place for entertaining guests during the holiday season.
The space is large and rustic, with a high-pitched ceiling ideal for hanging a chandelier crafted from antlers. The visual centerpiece is an 11-foot-long harvest table made from reclaimed oak from a Chester County barn. It was commissioned from Annie Joyce at Springhouse Furnishings in Chadds Ford.
Hand-painted English Staffordshire plates from the couple’s wedding line the table, which also reflects their commitment not to ruin the effect with single-use plastic cutlery. The final touch is a gorgeous display of desserts on wooden cutting boards.
“For us, the biggest thing is bringing people to our table,” said Elizabeth. “We’ve learned that you can put tables in many different places, and the result is magical.”
