How can a table not be FUN when it is a peppermint tablescape? Just begin by building a centerpiece around all kinds of candy cane ornaments!
If these fellows look familiar, it might be because last year they hung out on my candy themed tree!
Add in a few mischievous elves and you have fun and frivolity!
I had my heart set on these peppermint swirl dinner plates from Hobby Lobby. There were none of these available online, so I was on a mission. Unfortunately the weekend I was in Florida, my Hobby Lobby didn’t have any of them left. Once I was back in Maryland, I did and online search for the closest Hobby Lobby. Off to Alexandria, Virgina, only to discover they only had five of them, and I needed six! I only briefly thought these peppermint placemats would be “too much”. See that little white button? These placemats came with buttons and buttonholes! They can be a table runner, too!
Not to be thwarted, I knew there was a Hobby Lobby right near I-95 in Savannah. I spent the night near there on my drive back to Florida and in the morning I was rewarded! This Hobby Lobby had a huge stack of the plates! Red, green and white candy cane napkin rings were the perfect way to tie up napkins, a pair of layered candy cane striped over solid red.
When I spotted these salt and pepper shakers I knew these would find a place on my table! You would almost expect peppermint flavor to shake out of these, wouldn’t you?Simple clear glass stemware held a little surprise for each guest. A cellophane bag of chocolate and peppermint kisses was tied up with candy cane and green curling ribbon. These explosions of curly ribbon added to the decor of the table, too!
Adding wreaths and candy canes to the chairs adds another fun element to this peppermint themed table!
