Tablescape Ideas with Our Design Gallery Experts
This past weekend we hosted a group of bloggers at our Omaha store for a holiday meet and greet that consisted of a tablescaping (part one) and a tasting (part two). We enlisted the help of our Design Gallery experts, that way our bloggers could get a couple of tablescape ideas and tips for hosting their friends and family this holiday season. They created two gorgeous tables, both totally different from one another.
The first table was designed with a classic, luxurious look in mind. The table contained a large piece of garland that laid across the middle of the table and had pine cones scattered throughout. In between the garland was a pop of color using glass jars enclosing red poinsettias For a little bit of height, two silver candle holders and a feather tree were incorporated. The dinnerware was simple yet elegant white china and to keep with the woodland look she included wooden bowls with glittered golden porcelain pine cones. On one end of the table was a beautiful white fur blanket next to a fan favorite, the shiny metal wine bucket. On the other end of the table laid a two-toned golden bowl with pine cones inside of it to tie the whole table together!
The second table was designed with a rustic, kid-friendly look in mind. The table contained all the important elements: glass, wood, metal and ceramic. The fan favorite amongst the bloggers from this tablescape was definitely the Santa Claus and reindeer bowls, which were layered on regular plates and a decorative wooden plate. Each plate setting was laid on a burlap dinner placemat. In the middle of the table were three red glass Christmas trees, three glass balls of different sizes and textures and one adorable porcupine holder. For the height element, two wooden candle décor pieces anchored the middle of the table. Of course the candles were battery operated for safety. To finish off the rustic look, two burlap glass jars filled with pine tree pieces, pine cones and cranberries.
Both tables really showcased the endless decorating opportunities available. Your table is a representation of your personality and style. The key is to have fun with it, be flexible and not be afraid to experiment.
