Because we leave our decorations up until late January, I set to work creating a Christmas Tablescape out of my new purchases.
I put this gold reindeer on a cake plate covered with a brown napkin inside a wreath with gold berries and a plain evergreen one dressed with faux brown poinsettias and gold grapes and balls.
My son named the tablescape "Arrogant Reindeer" and the name has stuck. He does have his nose pretty high in the air!
The weather cooperated and the snow outside made for a lovely backdrop to the golden glow on the dining room table.
I used my gold rimmed white dishes, copper chargers, gold placemats and gold (coloured) flatware. A votive with a gold berry ring adds warmth to each setting. Bronze coloured ball ornaments hold the placecards beside individual gold topped S&P shakers.
The centerpiece was flanked by a glass vase with candle insert filled with a layer of gold beads, then small brown ornaments topped with bronze coloured ornaments.
The table runner is a golden brown colour atop a rich brown damask tablecloth with matching brown napkins under the bowls.
Yes, that reindeer looks mighty "arrogant"! Its okay though as I think he makes a nice centerpiece and has a right to be proud, if not a little snooty!
Thanks for stopping by. I hope to get the pics of my wine tasting party last weekend ready for you soon. Be sure to stop by Between Naps on the Porch for a great idea on what to do with all those Christmas village pieces - Susan has outdone herself!
