I wanted it to feel holiday-ish without being 100% clear what that holiday was. This could go for Christmas, Chanukah, New Years, or really anything during winter, no? The runner was not meant for this room when i got it (on clearance, HG) but i think it sets the winter white tone. Usually the accent color is red, so i wasn't quite sure this would work out.
You drink out of seasonal glasses, I'm sure. I was thrilled to find this, but disappointed there was only one. (HG)
The candlesticks were either thrifted or from the dollar store, the candles themselves were never utilized before (gift from way back) and remembered them at the last minute! The only new item on the table are these little two toned presents (XMas Tree Shops) that i plopped atop the Spanish moss.
Snowflake napkins (Kohls clearance last year) and napkin rings (winnings) were the inspiration, adding to the two toned look.
What's that, these little presents light up? A deal and a steal if i ever saw one!
I still thought it needed something, so these snowflakes from the dollar store (from last year) were just thrown into the mix. Fancypants winter wonderland indeed.
A little extra bling-the blue ornaments in the apothecary jars were actually a garland. When I snipped them off, the remaining bits were just added to the Spanish moss instead of tossed in the trash. Their original destination, i'm ashamed to say.
I would totally host a
soiree dinner party just to eat it in here. It's amazing that thrifting, dollar stores, and clearance can result in something so pretty. I loooove it, and hope you do, too!
