Christmas tablescape

I finally got my new camera! I feel whole again!  It was weird for me not to have a camera, and my iPhone camera just wasn’t cutting it.  Now I get to show you some fun stuff I have done in the last couple of weeks while my camera was away!  So get ready for lots of pictures in this post…

The thing I am most excited about is how I was able to re-create this inspiration picture form BHG that I pinned on Pinterest

Oh how I fell hard for this centerpiece.  I just knew I wanted it on my table.  I saw the boxwood wreaths on sale at Joss & Main online right after Christmas and got giddy over finding them so soon. So I anxiously waited for them to come in the mail.  When they finally did, I was just a tad surprised.  They were smaller than what I had expected, and I hoped that my glass cake plates I already had would work.  Well, two out of the three did, and so I went on a hunt for the third, the smallest one.  Luckily, it only took me 4 stores to find the perfect small glass cake plate, Pier One had just the right size

I was shocked when I found the silver bird at HomeGoods, I wasn’t even looking for it and there it was!  It was if this centerpiece was meant to be

I liked adding a little bit of depth and color when I decorate, so I changed it up a bit from the inspiration picture

Xmas Decorations

I got the little glittery reindeer ornaments at Steinmart, they are just so cute the way their heads are looking up at the arrangement

I used the Christmas plates, glassware, place mats and most of the other stuff on my table I have had from years past.

I even kept the runner on the table that I used for Thanksgiving and just added glittery birds, ornaments, xmas greenery, and some fun green pear candles

I did buy these two large reindeer this year, {Homegoods, where else?} they were just so striking I couldn’t pass them up.  The height and the size works really well in the room, plus I love the pop of color it gives the table

I guess I had an eye for reindeer this year because I bought this white reindeer head from West Elm.  I put it on my buffet where I will put all the desserts come Christmas day

Whew that was a lot of pictures! Gotta love a new camera! But wait there is more!

I am finishing up my hot chocolate/apple cider station that I did last year, which was a huge hit.  I don’t know if I will have time to post about it before Christmas, but here is a glimpse of how it is coming along

Ok, I am done with bombarding you with pictures.  I hope you were able to stay with me on this long post. I don’t know about you, but I am running way behind on getting prepared for Christmas. I still have lots of wrapping to do, {actually all of my wrapping to do, who am I kidding} food shopping and a few decorating details I am hoping to get done.  Christams comes way too fast every year, I would just like for one year to be done by now…oh well, there is always next year right?

    I love your table setting – especially the beautiful snowflake napkin rings. Do you happen to remember where you got them? Those match my Christmas dishes perfectly! I’d love to try to find a set.
