If you know me, when it comes to Christmas – I am obsessed with twinkling trees, ambiance, all things Merry & bright AND all things related to Christmas entertaining. Like a festive holiday table in the garden.
Festive Holiday table
When I was working on my Christmas book- I kept thinking I could probably do a book on just trees, just natural Christmas and just Christmas entertaining full of festive holiday tables. Because I had so.many.things. I wanted to include in the pages. And my publisher was amazing and they added an Extra 20 pages to the book for me to be able to include more. And of course I did. And even so, I probably have enough for another book haha. Did I mention that I am obsessed with all of it?
This table came about from a few merry poinsettias and a magic inspiration moment while I was working in the garden. I originally planned to use the poinsettias by a doorway – and you will probably see them there yet. But I also decided they could add a little more ambiance to the table I was working on by the greenhouse and so- here is how it turned out.
Greenhouse Garden Holiday Table
I started with a beautiful eucalyptus garland – perfect as the centerpiece for the table. I added candelabras, simple place settings and touch of whimsy with the potted poinsettias placed around the table for ambiance.
Tip: Think of your setting in whole rather than just the table. Add twinkle lights, lit lanterns, lighted tree, etc. in the background to create a magic filled scene.
I prefer the softer colors when it comes to poinsettias- and so, these beautiful potted velvety white poinsettias were perfect. These are faux but look very realistic and I love that they can glow to add a little more magic.
Did you know this garland was faux? Yes indeed. It is a realistic faux from Balsam Hill
I used this garland recently in the wedding florals I did for my brother and his wife and it is actually being used somewhere else as we speak which you will see soon. It is a perfect centerpiece on the table and I love that it adds that layer of foliage without too many other elements that might distract.
I found these candelabras online- they were perfect for creating the candle drip look we were after for the halloween table we did. It was a little time consuming to add the wax- but I absolutely love how they turned out. Would you like a tutorial on how to do this?
The best part is- they add oodles of charm and feel like they are vintage even though they are brand new and inexpensive.
Tip: Even if you always prefer vintage- you can find beautiful new but vintage in style pieces that can be perfect for your table. And a bonus with those are that you don’t have to feel bad about altering or changing them if you would like to.
Forest green linens, blush satin bows and simple white dishes with vintage green goblets. A lovely combination and perfect with mixed and mingled vintage silver flatware.
Tip: Each place setting can be unique- they don’t all have to have the same matching flatware, places or glasses.
