How is it Christmas in just two weeks already? How?! I live for the holidays and knowing there’s only a little bit of time left until the big event has me all sorts of frantic to squeeze in every single Christmas ritual and tradition that I envisioned for this year. There have been a lot of major changes in our family over the last few years, especially this year since we are spending Christmas at home with just the seven of us. I have always wanted to deck my own halls for the holidays, yet I never have since we have always traveled every Christmas.
This year I will finally get the chance to. One of my dreams was to have my family gather around our perfectly “scaped” table for an amazing home-cooked meal, prepared by my husband and myself. Having a table that is all nice and festive has been a part of Christmas and holiday traditions in my family ever since I can remember. Now it is my turn to do the same.
The best part, I actually purchased everything on the table for under $250! How awesome is that? That means more money for presents!
I added rose gold cutlery to our dining wares and I have to say: I’m so obsessed! Does it make everything that much more festive, right? Here’s a little Christmas tablescape I put together for an early Christmas dinner. To complement the rose gold, I kept everything else neutral – decorating with garland we found at Pottery Barn, the plates are part of my personal Christmas China set that is no longer made, but you can find something just a beautiful here. I also picked up these beautiful rattan chargers from Crate & Barrel. For the place setting, I added some greenery, with a 7.5 in berry pick. I preferred for my napkins to lay flat, but these would look good rolled up with berry picks tied to each one as well.
Lastly, can I say that the wooden letter B was a perfect and amazing find! I am so thrilled that the picture frame that I doubled as my flat centerpiece, with the frosted mason jars and the letter meshed so perfectly together to create a wonderful focal point on my table!
