Christmas Table Setting {pt. 2 | Christmas Decor '13}

For pt. 2 of my "Christmas Decor '13" blog series (see pt. 1 here), I'm featuring our Christmas table setting. As with many of my posts of late, you'll be seeing several mentions of Target! When their 2013 Christmas decor starting hitting the shelves I knew I would have to exercise some serious self-control. When I came across their red berry tree and glitter grapevine tree (links below), I was immediately inspired to use them as the centerpiece for our pub-style dining table. A burlap tree from Hobby Lobby completed the "Christmas tree trifecta" I was seeing in my head. From there, I stuck with the red, white and gold color scheme...  

My sister-in-law Lindsey gave us this amazing turquoise pegged board last Christmas, and I love the versatility it brings to the background of our dining area. Stockings, ornaments, and holiday mugs made the perfect accents to this piece for the holiday season! 

I enjoy creating table settings with a variety of textures, patterns, colors, and dimension, finding the delicate balance of avoiding both "matchy-matchy" and "all over the place."

The varying heights (18"/16"/12") of the Christmas trees were key to achieving a balanced centerpiece look. Also, each tree relates to at least one other tree in the group. For example, the berry tree and burlap tree both feature red accents and the berry tree and gold tree are both the "grapevine" style.

It's hard to believe Christmas is less than 10 days away! Reed and I are just about done with our Christmas shopping (we started way too late!) and have already celebrated one of our family Christmases! Being with family is by far my favorite part of this time of year. As always, thanks for stopping by and sharing your feedback! Have a wonderful day!
