A few weeks back, I traveled to visit my daughter and was thrilled that while I was there, she and her fiance decided to decorate for Christmas. Of course, that meant I was able to help her with an idea she had for her seasonal tablescape. Now, she isn't near into the table designing that her mom is but she did have the idea/basis for a centerpiece and some colours in mind. We went from there and this is what we came up with....
It started with the three white bowls she had bought at HomeSense at Thanksgiving and used like this then...
(Click HERE to see more of her Thanksgiving table)
...and this is how we filled them for a Christmas/Winter look (more on these later)
After a shopping trip to a few stores, we rounded up other items for the table...
Silver reindeer from Canadian Superstore
White Candle Christmas Trees from HomeSense
(cut the wicks off as they are too nice to burn!)
She already had the stemware.
Glittered Pine Cones from Michael's
(I'm sure you crafty people could make these!)
Pearl and Silver Ball Garland from HomeSense placed along the length of the table.
The silver "cone" trees are from Walmart. They light up but turn a garish blue, red and green when lit so we opted to have them "off".
Silver votive holders are from HomeSense.
Small glass snowflake placecard holders are from London Drugs.
Silver Chargers from London Drugs, Tablecloth and Runner from HomeSense and Napkins from Canadian Superstore. She already had the gorgeous snowflake napkin rings which were a previous gift from her "mother-in-law-to-be".
White Bowls from HomeSense were filled with silver balls, bits of faux greenery, glittered pine cones, and faux silver "twigs"(Michael's)cut into pieces.
Love how it all came together for a frosty Christmas look!
My daughter does not have the dish
obsession collection that her mother has but her everyday square white plates and cutlery worked perfectly!
It was so much fun "playing" with my daughter while we shopped for and created this tablescape! Special thanks to her for humoring me - I know she really isn't into it - but am happy she and her fiance seemed pleased with the result!
I must say though, it all started with HER terrific idea to use these three of these white bowls from HomeSense...
...maybe "it" is in her genes somewhere!
