Let's talk tablescapes and holiday table decorating today. As much as I plan on having a beautiful table decorated with all the holiday trimmings, I rarely do the shopping or DIYing to pull it off the way I want to in advance. Most of the time, I'm rushing around finishing the cooking, ironing the linens and pulling out tabletop decor all at once. This year I was determined to do better.
I made the coastal starfish chargers for this tablescape. I'll post the DIY tutorial in a separate post:)

I Mixed elegant and casual elements like our family silver that has been around for several generations on a burlap tablecloth.
A small grapevine wreath was easy to unravel by soaking it overnight. I wound it along with strings of pearls around the pumpkins and starfish.
I don't have space to store a lot of tabletop and holiday decor. I love that I can incorporate some of my daily items in a festive holiday table setting.
