The Making of my Holiday Tablescapes – part 1

My husband and I always take some time off during the Holidays to enjoy time with the family. We typically entertain at the cottage. The merry surroundings, the relax atmosphere and the ski slopes attract everyone year after year. Obviously, I dress up the table every night.

To supply fresh content to my blog, I decided to create two distinct looks this year. You will see them developing gradually. Today is about the starting props.

Winter wonderland

The main theme (bottom picture) celebrates northern wildlife during winter. My inspiration came from two adorable props that I already owned:

  • the small stump’s birch bark cachepot set and
  • the Acrylic Ornaments box set by FERM Living with their cute squirrels.

Mixed with pines cones and miniature trees, this design has ski cottages written all over it.

Country baroque

My secondary theme draws on another huge trend this year, the baroque style. But I am doing it with a twist.

My event location has a Swiss cottage architecture backbone with an up-to-date wood kitchen. I can wait to show you I am combining both styles.

As the week progresses, I will reveal more items.
