We aren’t hosting Thanksgiving, but that doesn’t mean I want to miss out on all the tablescape fun. It was actually a great time to come up with an untraditional table for the pre-holidays.
Because I wanted to coordinate the holiday decorations with our dining room decor, I think I’m going to use silver, yellow/gold and turquoise for Christmas. And since we’ll be out of town for Thanksgiving, I thought now would be a good time to test the color scheme. I think I love it.
For my DIY aspect, I rolled the votives and taper candles in epsom salt to give them a snow-kissed look. (Easiest project ever.) They really turned out pretty – perfect for winter.
I had pretty much everything on-hand. I did buy the teal Christmas ornaments and the silver scarf, which I’m using as a runner. (And which I plan to wear as well.)
The plates I purchased last April from Crate & Barrel are finally put to use. I added a teal ribbon and a silver charger.
While not at all Christmas-like indivdually, it still feels very festive when placed together.
I placed the mirror I painted a few weeks ago in the center of the table and added a bunch of silver pinecones and ornaments around the candles.
So the Woodward household has officially transitioned from fall to winter… at least at the dining room table.
