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!
My 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.
The 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.
The 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!]
