Deck the halls with boughs of holly, fa la la la la la. Decorating the table (and halls) for Christmas Day dinner is one of my favorite things to do. I consider it my contribution to dinner since my cooking skills are not quite up to par like those in my family. We all have our strengths and weaknesses, right? I like to think my strengths are making things pretty, like this tablescape. This year I wanted to keep the color palette a bit more neutral with mixed metallics. The garland and pop of plum ribbon gave it just the right amount of color.
My favorite part about the table is the garland, I can never get enough of it during the holidays. This one was fairly easy to do too! I purchased 75′ of cedar garland from the flower mart, 12′ was for the table and the rest was to deck the halls. I cut up the strands of the glitter garland that I bought from Michaels (I purchased silver, white, and gold) and tucked small pieces throughout the cedar garland. This gave it a little bit more of a whimsical look.
When you work for a company that has event rentals like mine (Bright Event Rentals). It makes it so much easier to create tablescapes like this one. I was able to get all the necessities I needed; china, glassware, flatware, linens, and chairs from Bright. I’ve been collecting the candle holders over the last few years and like to use them all on the table to create a warm and cozy feel. The taper candles came from World Market and are a steal right now! The little geometric shapes on the plates are from the Target Wondershop. Does anyone else think that everything in this collection was ridiculously cute?! These little guys are actually paper ornaments that I flipped upside down to sit on the plate.
I hope you all enjoyed this post as much as I enjoyed sharing it all with you!
