TRADITIONAL RED AND GREEN TABLE
One of my most favorite things about this time of the year is spending time with family. My holiday tablescape is one i can't wait to spend sitting around with family
There is something about decorating with traditional red and green that brings back sweet memories of the past.Do you have memories of being with your parents,grandparents and cousins for those wonderful New Year dinners. You can't help but to feel a lot of nostalgia when using the colors.These colors are bringing to me so many memories from my childhood.A time of gathering of family where we were surrounded by those we loved and loved us.So many memories from a time long ago.
Today I am sharing a table using traditional colors of red and green with gold accents that gives that festive look.
Usually my tablescapes are inspired by a particular theme,and this one was no exception.The plaid tablecloth that my mother used every year,now she gave it to me.
I also really adore these festive place settings! I always say a great place setting starts with a great charger and this gold one is so gorgeous.I love the rimmed border around it. The mini red trees at each place setting are super adorable. Probably my favorite detail of the whole table setting!
I already owned the cute Santa Claus and the snowman at the other side as a presents from birthdays, and i knew they would give this festive touch to the table.
I also wanted to incorporate a lot of natural elements. I used my wooden white tray to put inside the mason jar with a red candle,matching it with gold ornaments surrounded with pine cones and fresh greens.This is the best kind of holiday decor-the kind you can keep around till New Year.
The cutlery is looking more fresh and festive combined with fresh greenery tightened with twine string on a green napkin and a gold bell at the top.
Candlelight is truly magical,especially for the holidays. I love how it reflects off of everything on this table and gives it all life.
I am so happy that you stopped by to visit me. I also hope you found some inspiration to use for a tablescape in your home for this holiday season.
