Hope you enjoy seeing it a bit late...
My inspiration for this Christmas Glam Meets Rustic Woodland tablescape came from this beautiful glass cloche a co-worker gave me which I filled with an assortment of silver ornaments.
For a more natural rustic look, I paired the glammed-up cloche with this real/faux "runner" of greenery I created using steps outlined below.
Take an old piece of faux greenery
and some fresh real pieces of greenery
Gradually place each piece of real greenery amongst the faux (a bit messy but cleans up easily)
(Yvonne at Stone Gable gives a great tutorial HERE on making a wreath using this method)
Okay, now on to the rest of the tablescape....
The place settings were kept very minimal with no placemats (did you notice, NO tablecloth either - a big change for me with our new dining set!) and plain white dishes on silver chargers.
My acrylic snowflake napkin rings on rolled white napkins added to the simplicity of the design.
A silver bird speaks to the shiny glam of the table...
...while my brown metal pine cones add a rustic element
This view into our dining room gives more of a wintry woodland feel ...
...whereas, the view looking from the dining room towards our tree makes the tablescape take on more of a Christmas look.
Candlelight for the table consists of a simple white taper set in a shiny silver holder on each side of the cloche centerpiece.
I kept the centerpiece and runner on table for a few weeks until the real greenery branches began to lose their needles. (Below, you can also see I've hung snowflakes from our new chandelier)
Here's a closer view of how I've decked out the sideboard for the season.

Some acrylic, glass and crystal pieces add some sparkle to welcome the New Year.
