To kick off my theme of “ready to party” for the holidays, I am sharing another option for a tablescape. I know I mentioned before that I have a sort of coastal theme in my home, so I tend to decorate with colors that blend with that, whatever the holiday. And what could be prettier than blue for the holidays, whether it be Christmas or New Years or even an early holiday get-together?
When I design a tablescape, I pull things from all over the house. In this case, I put blue, aqua and clear decorative bottles together and arranged them on a wooden tray for the centerpiece. I tucked a few flowers here and there in the arrangement. I brought in my round blue placements from the patio. You can see that this is simple clean look.
At each place setting, I added a glass paperweight. My husband has a collection of these gorgeous paperweights and I thought it would be fun to set one at each place setting. It would be nice to tuck a name card under each for a dinner party.
While it is fun to decorate with lots of colors and items, it can be just as elegant to use just a few things, carefully placed. As this is a natural look, I left the table bare instead of using a tablecloth. I love the natural light that comes in through the French doors so didn’t add candles as I almost always do.
How do you decorate for the holidays? Do you see a little blue in your future tablescape? Look around your home for whatever theme you might be planning and re-use those items in holiday your tablescape
