A month or so ago I read about a holiday table scape link up party on Centsationalgirl and I knew I just had to craft away and make a holiday table scape for today. I figured it would be a great way to get myself and my family into the holiday spirit. I truly believe that the love is in all the details of my table, so I took my time making sure each project was special on its own.
Enough of me just talking about it, how about I just show you & bare with me there are a lot of pictures due to my desire to try and transcend you guys here through the computer. (Also Giveaway alert, more info at the end of the post)
& check out how beautiful the candlelight of the table became the darker it got outside. This will make for a perfect Christmas Eve dinner.
Here is a source break down:
*The pennant flags & sweater pillows were made from inexpensive Goodwill sweaters & scarves.
*I recovered the bench in flannel fabric purchased from JoAnn's for $10, with a coupon.
*The yarn ball garland was free (I even used some scrap strips of flannel fabric & not just yarn).
*The "chargers" are made out of California Redwood that my husband just sliced & cleaned up.
*The plates were purchased on sale from West Elm for less than $6 a plate on sale.
*The glasses were from Cost Plus which I already had stashed in the cupboard.
*The straws can be found on Etsy which I've had for a long time & use every chance I get.
*The Spruce tree was $5 at Home Depot but I received it for free by using a military discount.
*The ball jars I had laying around. My husband just used thick aluminum wire & leftover spray paint to make them look more like lanterns.
*The candles were purchased super cheap from Ikea $4 for 6 of them. (unscented)
*The hydrangeas were out of our garden & the pine cones were found outside as well.
*The pine cone deer was a $4 makeover (click here for more info on that).
*The napkins were originally from Homegoods which I purchased a few years ago (an awesome basic)
*Everything else used- wooden balls, twine, jute & bundled match sticks were all things I had laying around the house.
The total cost of the table was $42 which I think is outstanding for such a fun look. It makes meals feel fancy. Well, I am assuming. I haven't let us sit there to eat yet haha. Well now that I have officially posted the longest post to date, I better go find something else to get into. I hope you liked the table and I can't wait to see you tomorrow where I have a fun little YARN BALL GARLAND giveaway to tell you about! Make sure & become a follower today so you can enter tomorrow!
