Today I am celebrating my first joint link party, Celebrate Your Story! with Danielle of Storypiece. I hope you will find a home here each week to share whatever your story may be.
For me, one of my favorite ways to tell a story is through a beautiful tablescape. I don’t know what makes some of us enjoy styling a table so much, but it is obvious that some of us absolutely love it. Was it your job to set the table for dinner when you were young? I was the table-setter and believe it had an early impact on me. Today I’m going to revisit a tablescape from last year that I had a lot of fun putting together. This peacock tablescape was set during Christmas time for a small and elegant dinner party for four.
The lovely peacock was a perfect centerpiece for my peacock tablescape and I nestled him down in the center of a peacock feather wreath. You can find more pictures of this tablescape at A Peacock Inspired Christmas Tablescape, and also more information on where the pieces to put this table together came from.
I couldn’t find the dishes I used last, however, I found these beautiful peacock plates that are probably a little more practical, since without the ornaments on them, they can be used year round. You could just add this pattern in a salad plate and use white or gold and white plates beneath these to create a similar peacock tablescape, however a 16 piece set for four is $115 if you wanted to go all out with the peacock pattern.
To create a tablescape that is a little more “Christmasy,” just add some beautiful ornaments like these in a crystal bowl for a centerpiece.
What are your thoughts on peacocks at Christmas? Let me know in the comments after you check out the link party!
