“For nothing will be impossible with God”
I think we can all agree that Christmas is the time everyone steps it up a notch with decorating. What other time of the year do we take an entire weekend, some even longer, to decorate for a holiday? I love to see photos of trees, mantels, porches, and everything in between all decked out in the traditional red and green. It’s also the time of year that we open our homes to family and friends to enjoy good food and fellowship, making it my favorite time of the year to Tablescape! I love using fresh cut greenery, fruit, and of course, lots of bling and color! Over the years, I have collected so much Christmas decor that I have an endless supply of things to choose from…and I like to mix things up a bit! This Christmas season, I added salad plates from Pottery Barn that I can use during the winter months, not just for the holidays! They make for a good transition while bringing holiday cheer!
The salad plates provided the inspiration for the table! The long centerpiece is made with fresh-cut cedar, apples, and candles! There are four different birds represented on the plates! I paired a solid red napkin with an apple green chevron print napkin and cinched the two with a napkin ring! A pair of square vases filled with cranberries hold a floating candle…so simple, but elegant! The rattan chargers add texture and give the setting a rustic feel! Candlelight provides the perfect ambiance anytime, but especially at Christmas! The foundation for the centerpiece is a festive table runner!
The colorful stemware is always used during the Christmas season!
This was one of those tablescapes that came together in fifteen minutes…love it when that happens!
The five flocked slim trees are a new addition to the dining room! They were so easy to assemble and put in place – perfect with just the lights and no ornaments! “A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold
in a setting of silver”
