The holidays are just a couple of weeks away and I couldn't resist myself and had to start practicing my table setting for future family gatherings. This year is going to be extra special since my only brother will be joining us for Christmas and he's planning on surprising my 3 daughters with his visit. I just can't wait to see everyone's face light up with excitement!
Because this is a special and memorable year, I've decided to make my setting glamorous by adding silver and gold tone accents. To start my arrangement, I've placed sets of dishes with a modern and beautiful design. These are from the new Holiday collection of BHG at Walmart and I have to say that they are "ultra-stylish". I love simplicity but along with it a bit of glitz never hurted anyone!
No table setting will be finished without a centerpiece and one of the elements that I loved the most was the candle holder reindeer. I painted this accessory with gold spray paint so it blended better with the rest of the setting. You can find this beautiful adorn also from BHG at Walmart, here. I threw into the mix some mercury glass trees and candles to create a warm atmosphere and to add to the glamorous setting I've envisioned.
On this table design I love repeating the globe shape. You will find it in my pendant air plant holders, on the teardrop napkin holders (which are Christmas tree ornaments), on the mercury glass candle holders and even on the wine glasses. This creates a unifying element throughout the entire setting.
I love how this setting turned out; it is of a simple design but with that special Midas touch that only gold (and in this case, silver) can bring. When setting a table always remember that one of the most important things you can do is to play with the heights of each of the elements. This will assure you a pleasant sight and unity throughout the centerpiece.
For this coming holidays, are you planning on decorating your table or do you focus more on your mantel or outdoors? Share your ideas with me.
