In October, I wrote about my fall tablescape using copper accents. Since it’s now December, it’s time to talk about winter decor and holiday tablescapes. Whenever I set out to decorate a new space, I always think about what I can use that I already own. I’m not one for going all out and purchasing all new items for the holidays. When decorating, I try to keep things very simple, use what I have, and buy only what I need (or really want.) This year’s holiday tablescape is no different, I used what I had and purchased only what I felt was truly needed to get the look and feel I was trying to achieve. I did add a few items to my decor collection, like the “Merry Christmas” figure and the AMAZING copper tray. This tray was, I think, a top of a light, probably used over a pool table, but I could be completely wrong. As soon as I saw it in an antique store, I knew I had to have it and that it would add such an interesting element to my winter tablescape. I love the look of it and I can’t wait to use it in many different ways and in all the seasons.
In all my decor, I try to use my blue glass collection. This tray is holding a good portion of my beautiful blue bottles, but if you can believe it, I have more. I’ve been collecting them for a few years now and I can’t pass up a good blue glass bottle when I see one. I think the color of these bottles adds a perfect winter accent. The small antlers are actually Christmas tree ornaments.
Cute right?!? With the bottles and antlers, along with a little greenery, together in the copper tray, I think it’s a striking centerpiece.
In October, my place tags were copper spray-painted pumpkins. For my winter place tags, I wanted to do another easy DIY. I bought some clear Christmas ornament bulbs and applied two coats of copper spray paint, I then used a permanent marker to write the names. Nothing to it! And anything is cuter with a little twine tied around it!
Have you started decorating for Christmas or other winter holidays yet? If not, do you plan on decorating your dining table for the holidays? I truly enjoy having my dining table decorated for whatever season we find ourselves in. It sets the tone for the entire home, welcoming us into the season.
Remember, you did it yourself and it will probably show. Embrace the DIY life.
