One of my all time favorite parts of the Holidays is dressing the table for the festivities! This year I teamed up with the great folks over at JOANN to create a tablescape that adds to the ambiance of the holidays! If you haven’t seen my Christmas theme yet you might want to check it out here. I wanted to continue my theme of naturals, greens, and light colors… I don’t want to brag or anything but I think I nailed it!
So let me walk you though how I developed the foundation for my tablescape. I wanted to carry the use of grapevine from my tree to my table, and this is how I did it! I purchased some grapevine garland from JOANN, I was able to stretch it out and loosen it up to create a nice slow looping motion.
In order to make the grapevine stay in the shape I wanted it to, I used a long strip of wood and a staple gun! I simply tacked the grapevine to the wood to act as a stabilizer.
I repeated the process down the length of the table. Next up I added a simple Pine Garland from JOANN. It was very realistic and had pine cones, and with the holiday sales they were running I was able to pick it up for $12! Nice. Next I needed to add some filler. I wasn’t entirely certain what I was going to use as a filler, but then as I was browsing JOANN it hit me… or rather I nearly ran it over. They had a huge display of clear ornaments! There was something about them… I like the way they reflected light, and the simplicity of them. So I grabbed an assortment of sizes and prayed my idea would work! Before checking our I grabbed a handful of miniature Christmas light strands to play around with and then headed home to experiment.
*Spoiler Alert* It all pans out!
Well those little stands of light I grabbed as an impulse buy were my saving grace. I threw a few strand in a handful of their large craft bulbs and had a CLEAR winner. (See what I did there?) I ended up adding a touch of gold spray paint to the ornament caps. You can pick up the spray paint at JOANN and it took all of 5 minutes to do. So if you want to change up your color scheme a bit, this is a great way to do it!
Lastly, I added a small piece of ribbon to the tops of the ornaments. It just looked like it was missing something, and apparently that “something”was a simple white satin ribbon. AGAIN, changing out this simple ribbon could be a great way to coordinate with your other home decor. So just mull that option over.
I wanted to carry the centerpiece into my individual place settings as well, so I fastened a small clear ornament to a white satin ribbon, and used it in lieu of a napkin ring. I then snipped a small clipping from my pine garland runner and tucked it in the ribbon. These little touches cost about $5 TOTAL to add flare to every place setting! Not too shabby!
