As I mentioned yesterday, I have paired up with Target fancy up two spaces for the holidays. A Traditional Space & a Non Traditional. Today I am sharing my more Traditional Dining Table, with a twist of course. Given that this corner is relatively neutral, it's a great space to amp up for the season. The biggest change is the addition of the wreath chandelier. I took a 30" pre-decorated Wreath (after removing the red poinsettias…) and simply attached two long pieces of ribbon to the back of the wreath. I tied them on the back wire frame at four equal points so it would hang properly & used a small tea cup hook in the ceiling to hang the temporary chandelier. It instantly added a Christmas feel to the space, and also made me realize how much I want a real chandelier in this space! Are you reading this Santa?!
Another simple change was switching out a few of my regular pillows for some wintery versions… A beaded snowflake, faux fur & knitted pillow to be exact.
When dressing a Holiday Table, it's fun to go for the glam. I choose these textured chargers & paired them with the lovely scalloped dinnerware. The decorative shape is festive enough for the holidays, but simple enough to keep in rotation year round. I topped the plates with these gorgeous metallic dot napkins. I nabbed the last two packs at my local Target, so if you can still find them be sure to grab yours too! I created a simple pocket fold & made a little menu to slide in. It's fun to take your holiday table to the next level & a menu or place card definitely does the trick! I added a little more sparkle to the napkins in the form of some statement earrings… Vintage Broaches would be beautiful too!
To finish off the table I filled three mercury glass jars (which look beautiful with candles flickering inside!) with some seasonal greenery & some holly from our front yard. And also added the sweetest little polar bear salt & pepper shakers to add a little whimsy.
