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.
While I 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!!
