Holiday Tablescape

One of my favorite home design blogs is Bliss at Home. I’ve been following Kristy’s blog for several months now, and I love her modern & glam design and DIY ideas. Bliss at Home is part of a Home for the Holidays Link Party, featuring fun holiday craft & design categories throughout December. I was optimistic that I would find the time in this super busy week to make up a table display to link up to the Bliss at Home Holiday Tablescape link party. It closes today, so I’m just in time!

HolidayTable4My husband and I rarely entertain, mainly because our apartment is rather small (but cozy!) I’ve got quite the itch to have a little holiday dinner party or get together this year, though, now that we are blissfully married & our small-but-cozy home has been filled with lovely gifts from our generous friends & family.

HolidayTable1The table I laid out would be perfect for an intimate dinner party with friends, utilizing bright Christmas red & greens, and the metallic hues of silver and gold.

HolidayTable6Each place setting consists of a gold charger and a plain white dinner plate mixed with the salad plates from our brand new wedding china.

HolidayTable7[Our white everyday dishes are the Pottery Barn Traditional Great White, and our china is Kate Spade Gardner Street- which I absolutely adore.]

HolidayTable2The table is covered in a red holiday tablecloth I picked up at the Christmas Tree Shop for about $5. The pretty plaid napkins are from Pottery Barn. I topped each place setting off with a DIY holiday cracker – a staple for holiday dinners at my both parents & in-laws’ homes.

HolidayTable3The centerpiece is made up of a collection of etched mercury glass vases filled with sprigs of artificial holiday berries, and mercury glass candlesticks complete with my DIY-ed gold striped candles. [Vases & Candlesticks from Pottery Barn – wedding gifts!]

HolidayTable5In the background is our buffet, topped with candles, a pitcher filled with holiday berries, and more entertaining essentials like a creamer & sugar bowl!

HolidayTable8So, Now that the table is all laid out- who is coming over for dinner?
