Peacocks for Christmas and a Link Party
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.
While peacocks might not be traditionally connected to Christmas their colors fit right in to the season!
I got a little creative with my photography because these are such artistic dishes the way the ornaments hang at the top and the peacock feather wraps down around the edge of the plate.
These amazing white Champagne glasses came from Z Gallerie. These are so tall and so stately and we were going to have a Champagne toast at this dinner.
The white peacock napkin rings were also a find from Z Gallerie. I find things there are a little more expensive, but sometimes they are just the perfect additions to a table or to my home decor.
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.
