When it came to prepping our Holiday table for it’s first party of the season, I pulled our untraditional color palette from our main tree.
So rather than red & green, our table is festive in white, blue & pink. Which was a perfect excuse for me to pull out our new blue & white plates from Food52! (Insert heart-y eyes emoji here.)
I layered these hand stamped beauties with some other plates I have collected over the years. I love mixing up the shapes, textures & patterns to create added interest. I continued the spotted/hobnail detail of the geometric plate with the subtle polka dots in my pink placemats & the blue hobnail glass goblets. While none of them “match” repeating the motif in subtle ways helps to create a more cohesive tablescape.
The centerpiece is filled with a simple white porcelain deer, who is festive yet chic, and multiple vintage brass candlesticks found at our local thrift store. While I could have easily added tapers, the small ornaments help to add an instant holiday feel.
hoard collect many things, my newest obsession are these vintage linen monogrammed napkins. None of the monograms are mine, none of them match, but I adore the fact that each one has it’s own mysterious story. These vintage beauties came hand selected from Food52 in a set of four. Now when I am out & about, if I run across a lone monogrammed white napkin I can simply add it to my collection with no worries that they don’t “match”. And topping them off with these gold rimmed agate rings was the perfect finishing touch.
Creating a holiday tablescape doesn’t have to mean the same thing year after year. By incorporating items that you use everyday & placing a few key holiday accents your table goes from chic to holiday chic!
I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!!
