A SIMPLE SILVER HOLIDAY TABLESCAPE

For this year’s holiday tablescape I embraced cool silver and blue tones, with a natural centerpiece in shades of mossy green, all discovered at my local At Home store. I started with the electroplated wine glasses, whose silver stems set the predominate metallic hue on the table. From there, I found silver chargers and votives, then layered glass and white plates (with a snowflake-like look) to create an ice-inspired finish to each setting. The focal point of the table is definitely the frosted pine-cone trees, under which I stacked books to stagger the heights of the three trees. I covered the base of the centerpiece in preserved moss, which looked beautiful on our wooden dining table. It gave a natural finish to the piece, and brought in some traditional holiday greens – and some brighter shades as well. With such a straightforward color palette, it was easy to bring in simple touches to make the table shine, but keep the overall feeling cool and serene. Once the votive candles were lit, the table took on a warm holiday glow! See the rest of this tablescape below.

I just love how these layered plates bring snowflakes to my mind – from the pattern in the glass plate to the shine of the silver chargers. The ring of silver definitely makes each setting stand out and adds the extra layer that really makes the table feel festive.

It was nice to give our dining room such a serene look, bringing in touches of blue and green with the white and silver combination. I love finding new color palettes for the holidays, and this serene treatment definitely gives the festive table a new twist. It was fun to bring this table together with my #AtHomeFinds – head to your local store to find lots of holiday decor!
