I posted this yesterday with Lisa at Before Meets After 12 Crafty Days of Christmas but I wanted to also post it on my blog and also link up with No Minimalist Here!
While I love all this fun, kid friendly Christmas decor I do sometimes crave some adult, breakable, beautiful Christmas decor too. So this year I decided to pretty up my dining room table. I broke out the china we registered for when we were married along with the gold rimmed wine glasses, we need to use this stuff more often. I even found this awesome chair at Savers for $12. I love how it looks at the head of the table! Beware of picture overload, I captured some more pictures this morning with the sunlight glinting off all the glass and love it!
I found some wallet size picture frames and added some black and gold checked wrapping paper inside of them.
I purchased some burlap from Hobby Lobby for $5 and layered my white Shabby Chic runner on top.
The lanterns and the candle sticks are from IKEA. I used some tree garland, pine cones and colored bulbs that I had from last year around the IKEA candle sticks.
Finally, I found this mercury glass tree at Marshalls but sadly they only had one left. I added this cool vintage glass bowl on a gold candlestick I found at Savers and a mercury glass votive from Target all wrapped in garland with some more pinecones and bulbs. Are you sensing a theme here?
I tried to use what items that I had around my home and what I did purchase I found thrifting, tried to use a coupon or purchased on sale.
I really enjoyed putting this table together and having a little adult space in my otherwise kid friendly environment. It was fun and I think I am going to try my hand at tablescaping again! Maybe next time I’ll include the siverware too! My plain jane everyday stuff just didn’t look quite right with the table decor and place settings so know I’m going to be keeping my eye out for some fun mis-matched but “fancy” silverware!
