Winter Vibes Tablescape

Now that the holiday season is behind us, it is time to focus on winter decor.  I especially like the combination of black and white when creating a winter vibe.  With that in mind, I created this snowy winter wonderland tablescape which was put into use for a  luncheon I recently hosted.





The table decor definitely matched the weather outside as it was snowing heavily that day.

I was inspired to create a wintry forest as a centerpiece.

I have two of these white moose which were made part of the snowy table scene.

I got a bunch of these flocked trees in the after Christmas sales last year.

I added faux snow around the bottoms of them to simulate snowdrifts.

This vintage looking white lantern anchored the middle section of the centerpiece.

A trio of candleholders were placed at each end of the table. Battery operated mini-lights were hidden under the faux snow down the center of the table.

They are by Partylite from years ago.

The place settings were also done in black and white.

A black and white buffalo check napkin was encircled by a snowflake napkin ring.

A snowflake patterned wine glass and coffee mug sit ready to be filled.

Clear acrylic handled flatware adds to the frosty vibe.

Ice cube shaped candleholders provide a bit of ambiance to each place setting.

A buffalo check table runner sits under the centerpiece.




Are you feeling the winter vibes of this tablescape?

Around these parts, we've still got a lot of winter to get through before spring so it's good to embrace it!

New Year's Eve Gold & Black Tablescape

This year has flown by and I can't believe it is already coming to an end. It has brought us a couple of exciting events with our daughter's wedding and our son completing his PhD and we are looking forward to more upcoming fun in 2019... stay tuned :) 




This is a tablescape I put together for last year's New Year's Eve but I never got it posted.  Hope you enjoy seeing it now.




Gold and black were combined for a dramatic and celebratory effect.



The place setttings consisted of a gold charger plate and flatware.  Dinner and salad plates  in white with gold rims were added.

Black cloth napkins were encircled with gold napkin rings embellished with gold accents. 
 Here, I chose some gold tones grapes.

And here, I placed some gold berry picks as an accent to the napkin ring.


Gold votive holders add to the festive vibe.


Martini glasses were used as placecard holders.

Besides the placecard, they were filled with acrylic and glass pieces, some curling ribbon and a glittered apple.

The stemware included a champagne glass and an amber coloured wine glass.

A white table runner with a gold star pattern runs the length of the table. A black feather boa was placed on top of it.


The centerpiece began with this glass vase filled with gold beads, black ornaments and topped with some fireworks-looking accents. Battery operated mini lights were placed inside.

A similar arrangement filled these other glass vases.

Black party hats and horns were also incorporated into the centerpiece.

The table is set for a festive dinner party to bring in the New Year.

Even the chandelier got some party streamers added to it.

Do you like to stay in and have a few friends over for New Year's Eve? Or do you prefer going out on the town?

Either way, I hope you have a wonderful time...

...and I wish you all the best in 2019!
