season’s musings :: anora grey tablescape

I am Christina Loucks Ahumada from anora grey. Caitlin, first and foremost, thank you so much for asking me to guest post on your lovely blog. I am so honored!

There is nothing lovelier that a perfectly decorated table and it can truly be done with little effort and cost. Simplicity says it best, and the repetition of shapes and color is what helps to create a consistent design. Choosing one or two style flowers, you can create impact in multiples. To add some more style, choose vases that speak towards your personal aesthetic. In this example, I chose more modern style vases, which repeats the roundness of the baubles and the color of the white amaryllis flowers. Using things you have around the house, you can create a mood or seasonal impact. Here I chose gold baubles to spread on the table to create a sparkle that is most definitely a holiday necessity in my home. This gold and circular pattern was repeated wrapping the inside of a clear vase with a vintage-find gold garland, and weaving it casually through the candles and vases. The clear vases were paired on this scape again repeating the round shapes and the sparkle of the baubles. To create height and dimension, clear glass candleholders were placed as yet another great reflective element, that I find so important in a design. To match that height, the soft natural color feathers soften all the linear lines of the candles and add a bit of interest and movement into table scape.

To find some of the items you see in this tablescape has a look here:

* candle holders – CB2

* white vases – west elm

* gold baubles – Target

* gold garland – vintage find but you can find something similar here.

* feathers – save on crafts

Thanks again for having me as a guest. I hope this helps to inspire your table design this holiday.

    Love the use of feathers! Big, beautiful white feathers remind me of angel wings . . . "when a bell rings, an angel gets its' wings!" Christmas classic. Timeless touch. Samantha
