Here’s a button if you would like to add that to your post.


When the tablescape portion closes Sunday, I will select my favorites and have a special feature on Monday!

Let’s get right to it!

Here is my Holiday Tablescape for 2012.

I wanted to stay with my glam holiday theme so I chose classic patterns in black and white  and added a lot of shiny details in gold and silver.

For each place setting, I selected gold glitter chargers and mixed my basic white china with my fine china.

For the name cards, I used scrapbook paper. I cut the cardstock papers with circle cutters and simply wrote with a Sharpie marker. The black ribbon wraps around the plates. I wanted it to resemble a wrapped present.

I added my favorite monogrammed napkins. Thanks again, Amy!

The table cloth is a basic white table cloth and I purchased the black and white greek key fabric on clearance. Can’t beat $3.98/yard!

Down the center of the table I used a simple black table runner and put gold ribbon over the center. I added boxwood and evergreen stems that I cut fresh from our yard.

I wove-in ornaments, gold jingle bells, and small glass votives.

For the centerpiece, I used a silver footed bowl and added ornaments in silver and gold. I love the mirrorball ornaments I found this year.

The tree in the background, was unplanned, since we are still laying floors in the dining area. Just an added bonus!

    Understated elegance works for me so your table is a real hit. Love the black-and-white cloth which appears to be the starting place for the entire look. I’d love to link, but my first table won’t be ready until tomorrow!

    Thanks for hosting the link party, and for stopping by my link! I love your tablescape, especially the linens you chose and the happy accident of the christmas tree in the background. I also really like the idea of the gift wrap table setting. It all looks great!


I love your comments!!!
