Although this year will be different, I am determined to enjoy this holiday season as much as I possibly can. Today I am hosting a Holiday Tablescape Blog Hop. I hope you enjoy the tablescapes all of these talented bloggers have created and get some inspiration for setting a pretty table for yourself this holiday season.
Begin styling this table with a roll of wrapping paper. You can select any wrapping paper color or pattern. Preferably you would want something that does not have a horizontal pattern to it. Roll it down your entire table and onto the floor, leaving the roll on the floor for the time being.
Roll out a solid roll of paper on top of your patterned paper.
Measure the sides to make sure your runner is centered on your table.
Your table will be looking somewhat like this with the layers of papers down the center. If the top paper wants to move around, you can add a little double sided tape here or there to secure it.
Take a piece of your top paper, which could be white or kraft or butcher table. You can go free hand like my friend, Brian did for me, or use a machine to print out words. I selected “Joy to the World”. Make sure you leave an ample amount of paper both above and below the message.
Use tape to add the paper with the message to the end of your table, positioning it so the message is read at the end of the table.
The next step is to add a focal point to your centerpiece. I found this beautiful reindeer at Michaels on sale and have plans to use him all over the house. You can use a tree, a basket of ornaments, or anything for your focal point.
Add something else to your table. I added these chunky black distressed candle holders. The black picked up the black in the buffalo check wrapping paper.
Add garlands down the center of your table. I began with a magnolia garland that I used on my Fall Mantel. Weave your garland among the items on your tabletop.
I layered a faux evergreen garland on top of the magnolia garland for fullness.
Make sure you add enough garland to let it drape over the end of your table and wrap around the words on the table runner as shown above!
You now have a stunning wrapping paper table runner! This will wow your guests!
Now it is time to set your table! I found these sweet red and black buffalo check salad plates at Kohls. It was easy to top black chargers with white dinner plates and these fun plaid ones.
Black napkins and red Pioneer Woman flatware were another way to coordinate with my wrapping paper.
Crystal water glasses and ruby wine goblets rounded out the table settings.
I loved how (totally unplanned) the black metal frame of my chandelier coordinated with the table colors.
