Hi everyone! I’m sure many of you are busy decorating for the holidays or trying to get your shopping done. It’s such a busy season, but there is also something special and magical about the hustle and bustle of the holidays! For some of you, along with shopping, wrapping and decorating, you’ll also be hosting some kind of gathering as well. Whether it be Christmas Eve dinner, a fun dinner party for friends, or even New Year’s Eve, you may be looking for tablescape ideas. If so, this week of inspiration is the one for you! I’m joining the Styled + Set Holiday Entertaining Blog Tour, hosted by Lory of Designthusiasm.
Today I’m sharing my Christmas Tablescape along with six other bloggers. But there are a total of 25 tables and entertaining ideas being shared throughout this week, so be sure to check back and take a look. I know you’ll find lots of gorgeous inspiration! You can also find lots more table settings in my free e-book!
Christmas Tablescape featuring Paperwhites, Pinecones, and Greenery
I used paperwhites in pedestal bowls, scattered pine and eucalyptus, and mercury candlesticks to create the focal point of the table. And I’ll let you in on a secret…. I’ve never grown paperwhites before! I’ve admired them for years, and once I had Pinterest I really fell in love with them. But still, I had never bought them or attempted to grow them until this year.
I found these mercury glass pedestal bowls at a local boutique and I fell in love! And at the same store, they were selling the paperwhite bulbs, so that’s when I decided to take the plunge. I can’t wait for them to bloom all the way, but I actually love the look of them as they are. They’re elegant but natural at the same time.
The greenery is cedar pine, regular pine, and both silver dollar and seeded eucalyptus. I also scattered some tiny frosted pinecones to complete the look.
I decided against napkin rings, and decided to use twine to tie together the flatware. I love that the twine is so casual and rustic against the mercury which looks “fancier.” One of the little pinecones finishes the look.
You can see more of these little white houses and bottle brush trees by visiting my French Country Christmas Home Tour.
The paperwhites were not only easy to grow, but they’ve grown so quickly. I actually think they’ll be blooming by Christmas!
