I hosted my supper club last week for our annual ornament swap Christmas party and wanted to share with you my table...
As you may remember from earlier posts, I decided to use a lot of mercury glass in my holiday decor, so of course I carried that theme over to the dining room table with mercury glass votives. I always love candlelight on a table! My sister and brother-in-law gave the hubby and me a gorgeous Fortunata bowl that you can see in the center of our table. I filled it with silver ball ornaments, pinecones, Christmas tree branches and red berries. Instead of using white flowers which I originally had in mind, I decided to juxtapose rustic elements (the pinecones, berries, etc.) with the mercury glass, and I think it turned out great! I love how the red berries added a much needed pop of color to the table.
Here is an up close shot of the place settings. I used a Juliska pewter charger with a white berry and thread Juliska dinner plate. My friend Kate gave us the FABULOUS cream napkins with pewter dots that couldn't be more perfect for this set up!! Luckily I found some old napkin rings in my kitchen drawer that blended well. That is definitely something on my list that I need. I'm thinking maybe some Simon Pearce? I think the glass would go with just about any look.
Are you entertaining this holiday season? I would love to know how you decorate your dining room table!
