I think I say this every time but tablescapes are my absolute favorite way to decorate! There’s just something so fun and relaxing about putting together a beautiful table and today’s post is no different.
This holiday season we’re simplifying and bringing in all the greenery and natural elements that we can.
The inspiration for today’s decor started at one of my favorite stores – Trader Joe’s. They had eucalyptus everywhere and I just couldn’t help myself. I picked up a few bouquets and let them sit on the counter for a week to dry out.
For the table settings, I knew I wanted to keep it minimal so I started with a jute charger and added my favorite plain white dishes.
To make the napkins, I grabbed a pack of flour sack towels, wrapped them in twine with a pinecone and stuck a sprig of eucalyptus down the center.
I think it kind of ties it all together, don’t you?
For the glasses, I drew some inspiration from our own Christmas Eve family gathering. Wine is always a staple, hence the lowball wine glasses.
But after dinner, we usually sit down with a hot cuppa and Bailey’s. So, I plopped down a coffee mug as well because, why not?
Those black candle holders? I picked them up on clearance at Target (duh.) a month ago – at only seven bucks a piece they were practically jumping into my cart.
Since I didn’t want it to be too bland, I added in those mercury glass votives at the last minute. They don’t add too much shine but just enough to bring some glamour into the setting.
And that dried eucalyptus? I cut off the stems and spread it in between the candle sticks and votive holders.
Now, we’re off to enjoy some coffee and Bailey’s 🙂
