Drama. Intrigue. Interactivity. Uncover the secrets of famed Los Angeles-based event and wedding planner Kristin Banta. As the holiday season gets into gear, Banta demonstrates how to elevate your dining and entertaining experience with a little help from Z Gallerie.

To add drama and interest to a table, Banta brings together crystal-cut perfume bottles in all shapes and sizes, pairing them with mercury glass votives for a sparkling, layered look. She creates a sumptuous display of nibbles for guests with an assortment of cheeses, nuts, figs, and jams - "everything is a feast for the eyes," Banta says of the food, the drinks, and the tableware.

Here's to a fabulous holiday season!
