Holiday Tablescape

Are you entertaining this holiday season?  Do you like to set a nice table?  I do and this year I found some plate from Home and Garden at Walmart that I will be using to do my Holiday Tablescape.

Holiday Tablescape

I only bought the small plates and they came if four different designs.  I decided that I would like to have all the different designs.  The also had tea towels and napkins.

I started out my table by using the tea towel for the middle of my table.   I was going to use a tablecloth but I thought the tea towel would bring the table together.

For each place setting I used a tan coloured place-mat that I bought at the Dollar Tree.  I had some Christmas plates that I have had for many years.. These plates were an off white colour.  I add the Home and Garden plates.   I made a tree design with the napkins.  My plans were to put them on the plate but doing that covered the design so I decided to place them in the corner.  I had some star shaped candles from party light that I placed one at each place setting.  Added a snowflake cup, cutlery and a glass.   Simple but I think elegant.

Tree design napkin and star candle.

As snowflakes seemed to be my design this year,  I added one to the centerpiece which was a gold plate from Partylite and 4 candles tied with a gold ribbon.  I then laid the snowflake against the candles.

I tied everything together by placing some greens around my light fixture and tied some snowflakes from the fixture at different lengths.  I also had a string of bead that have gold and purple in them, these bead I strung over the greenery.  

This table could be used all winter long.  It isn't just for Christmas.  With snowflakes, trees and candles it would work for an elegant gathering or a simple one.
