I'm going to join in with Chari at Happy To Design for Sunday Favorites and show a post from a last year about a tablescape that is still one of my favourites!
Last year at Christmas, I was really drawn to the newer colour scheme of copper, brown and gold and was fortunate to find some items during the half price sales after the holidays.
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. Head over to Chari's to see some other favourites from days gone by.
