It’s hard to believe the big day is almost here! I’m feeling a little bit of stress over last-minute gifts to buy, grocery shopping and baking still to do, but the thought of family gathered around this table very soon is really what it’s all about and I can’t wait!! Our dining room is still evolving, but I’m happy to say we finished recovering the chairs (blog post coming in the New Year) and not a moment too soon!
The biggest addition to my holiday table is this gold cutlery. I’ve been swooning over it for ages and it just happens to be an early Christmas gift from the hubby. I’ve been incorporating more gold touches into the dining room and love how it pairs with our new chandelier. I draped these Merry and Bright napkins and I’m quite liking this look which is new for me. Tip: A simple pine cone with tied ribbon is a quick and easy topping that can be created with whatever ribbon you have on hand. An ornament would also work well and your guests can take it home with them.
I kept the blooms simple and low, using a bunch of white roses and singles stems of hydrangeas. Adding in the pine sprigs gives it that special touch for the holidays. I knew I wanted multiple smaller arrangements but this would also look beautiful as one large centrepiece. Tip: Grocery store bunches are your friend! I love creating my own arrangements by purchasing several different bunches and adding my own personal touch. Or…purchase a large bunch and split it up!
Two is better than one right?!? Tip:: Layer your table runner for extra texture and interest. Here I’ve paired a luxury linen table runner with a gold burlap runner I scored at a vintage market. Love how it softens the edge where the runner meets my dark wood table.
Don’t forget the candles! Tip: Use a variety of candle holders. I paired a few different votive candle holders along with a some that matched for an eclectic look. Love the sprawling effect this creates down the centre of the table.
Thanks for stopping by to check out my holiday tablescape! I always enjoy sharing with you and really do appreciate you following along. Wishing you a Christmas filled with joy and happiness, surrounded by those you love.
