Set the Table — Challenge # 20
The other day my buddy Diane said she wanted to set a gorgeous table for the holidays this year. She was taking stock of what she had on hand, and planning to score a few new things to spice up her tablescape.
Leona recently gave us inspiration with the luscious scenes in her tinted glassware post. My daughter and I jumped in and created this fall table.
I wanted to add glassware in red and orange tones and I found some great stuff for a steal at Target: Gold-toned chargers and clearance glassware.
We snagged a giant autumn-leaves wreath at the farm stand. My daughter and I judiciously snipped off some red, gold and a few of the green leaves so that the wreath remained front-door worthy. We used simple glass plates and my daughter sandwiched the green leaves between the glass and the charger. Love it.
Everybody’s thinking about it so let’s have a Challenge around it!
Here’s your Challenge: Set a beautiful table and then share it with us. It could be what you’re planning for one of the upcoming holidays, for next week’s brunch for the In-Laws, or simply for dinner tonight.
The goal of this Challenge is merely to share fabulous ideas. So delve into the depths of your cabinets and see what you can find. Use the family china, flea market finds or shop a bit if you like.
Go for colorful or wow us with a neutral, textural scheme. Be Contemporary, Traditional or create a striking mix. Get creative, get crafty, whatever. Most importantly, have fun!
