This is the first in a series of blog posts teaching you how to put together the perfect DIY holiday tablescapes. Look for a new table theme each week leading up to the last week of December and don’t forget to check out our Pinterest board to enter the Pin It to Win It contest. This week’s theme is Sugarplums and Gold.
Bridging the gap from fall to winter, this time of year brings visions of plums and burgundies, lush golds and glitter. This table perfectly brings together those colors to create a glamorous tablescape that will surely make your guests want to break out the sequin dresses and fancy jewelry.
To create this table, you will need:
Pink Rose Petals from Kittelberger Florist
Willow Branches from Kittelberger Florist
Variety of Winter foliage from Kittelberger Florist
Burgundy cotton fabric
Gold ribbon, at least 2” wide
Gold curling ribbon
Double-sided hem tape
We made the table runner by cutting our burgundy fabric to fit our table (1’5” wide by 16” were our measurements) and using double-sided hem tape to attach the gold ribbon to the sides of the table runner, leaving about an inch and a half of the gold showing. This creates an elegant border and helps the burgundy pop off of the table.
After that, we took our willow branches and placed them in the middle of the table runner. We scattered the pink rose petals throughout the branches and added as many curled gold ribbons as we could, to really make the table shine.
The winter foliage and pine cones were then placed in the center of the willow branches to add some weight to the lightness of the branches and rose petals.
Candles add the final touch to bring the table to life.
We recommend the perfect arrangement to accompany this table is the Royal Christmas Centerpiece
