I have been a little MIA lately due to this weather we are having. It’s cold my friends and that means that taking care of old horses often takes a bit longer than a normal – throwing a flake of hay. It’s making sure that heaters in water troughs continue to operate, water troughs are full, monitoring horse blankets for tears, and feeding supplements. With that being said, this is Thanksgiving week. Already! That means that we can start decorating for Christmas! Everyone else has already started and I’m just late for the party.
A Little Christmas Styling before Thanksgiving
I have been wanting to share this simple holiday styled tablescape. I love a simple styling, ones that are easy to put together. These are the ones that often create a big Christmas feeling. Simple tablescapes that take just a few moments are key during the busy holiday season.
Creating the Look
I started with a simple centerpiece of sheet moss layered with fruit of pomegranates, apples, and white candles. The green from the moss, the red from the fruit and the white candles all just said simple Christmas holiday.
From my collection of white dinnerware- these white plates are topped with vintage Royal Limited Holly Holiday pattern china. This was a thrift store find and such a classic pattern for the holidays. One of my favorite things is to incorporate a touch of vintage in my home decor or tablescapes. Vintage always adds whimsy and history. Just simple white dishes of a single plate rather than the many layers along with a little mix of white on white.
Simple crystal goblets and vintage silver flatware that is most often stashed away- set the table. Your table doesn’t need to have pristine stacks of elegant china, polished silver and 3 glasses for each place setting to be elegant.
The napkins are mismatched tea towels all in the bold colors of red and white.
Simple elegance of red and white lends to a festive touch.
I hope this helps give you some ideas for setting an inspired table for your guests this holiday.
