A CELESTIAL CHRISTMAS TABLE SETTING

 

This non-traditional Celestial Christmas table hits a romantic note in navy, gold, and moody jewel tones all under a blanket of falling stars.

Hello! I'm so excited to be once again joining a fabulous group of bloggers for a Christmas Tablescape Hop organized by Chloe from Celebrate & Decorate. Scroll down to see them all!

A CELESTIAL CHRISTMAS TABLE SETTING

christmas star - christmas tablescape

One of my favorite Christmas songs, O Holy Night, and the celestial trend you see everywhere right now, inspired by my moody, wintery table.

Holiday Table with stars

It's hardly traditional, but I love the deep, unexpected jewel tones combined with a few traditional elements.

The Tablerunner

The table runner in a blue as deep as a clear night sky sets the tone for the table.

The Centerpiece

We all know I like to keep my centerpieces wild and untamed, and this one is no exception. Because my table is so long, I divided the piece up into three sections.

Ruby red poinsettias are joined by peonies, evergreens, while violet-blue speedwell adds contrast and interest.

The Table Setting

Christmas is one of the few times we pull out our good china.

The silver-rimmed china is perfect for this setting, especially topped with a celestial dessert plate decorated in silver and gold stars then topped with miniature tree toppers.

My stenciled napkins make another appearance, adding a dash of violet. Although an unusual addition, when I look to the night skies I see many colors - violet being one of them.

Other Decor

My favorite element of this heavenly Christmas table is the overhead mobile, with it's cascading moons and stars setting just the right tone for the table.

O hear the angel voices!
O night divine, O night when Christ was born
O night, O holy night, O night divine!

O night divine, indeed!

Tropical Summer Wreath Dollar Store Craft

This fun tropical summer wreath is made from dollar store materials. It’s a cute addition to your summer home decor that’s a cinch to make! 

Summer Wreath

Once the warmth of late spring arrives, I want to spend most of my time outside enjoying the weather, which means the inside of my house tends to take a backseat. Housework has to wait, new DIY projects have to wait, and laundry has to wait! Let’s face it; it’s a good day if everyone who lives in my house gets dinner. But, just because the inside of my house might look less than perfect doesn’t mean the outside has to! For me, that starts with hanging a seasonal wreath – in the case, a tropical summer wreath!

I’ve loved the look of disc wreaths lately, so, that was the first thing to come to mind when it came time for the most recent My Dollar Store Blog Hop. Not only is this project budget-friendly, but you can complete it in an hour – you’ll be back outside in no time at all!

The Table Runner

patriotic table setting ideas_table runner

You will see that I often re-use items over and over again in different ways. That is half the fun of table settings for me! If you’ve visited me before, you’ll know I love to mix patterns, fabrics, and textures for an eclectic look. This table uses a vinyl tablecloth, Layered with the burlap runner and topped with three check napkins on a diagonal.

The Centerpiece

patriotic table setting ideas_centerpiece

The centerpiece is a mish-mash of things that I had in and around the house. The daisies came in my Mother’s Day bouquet, along with the blue babies’ breath. I added azalea and greenery clippings from my yard and completed the arrangement with a faux poppy plant in bright red.

The Table Setting

patriotic table setting ideas_plate stack

I love to pair colorful dessert and salad plates with plain, white, every-day dinnerware. I often find unique, bold dishes in the most unexpected of places. These adorable appetizer plates came from my local grocery store and reminded me of fireworks when I saw them – they were on sale! Paired with the white dinner plates, topped with bright napkins in red and blue, they make a striking but very inexpensive stack.


Other Decor

My DIY patriotic swag wreath makes its annual appearance – it’s always a favorite for me at this time of year. Of course, I had to add something new – these fun fireworks-inspired tablecloth weights were a cinch to make! I love the fun element they bring to the table.  You can find the DIY tutorial for them right here. To complete the party atmosphere, I paired treat bags in red, white and blue.
