Holiday Greetings!

Monday, December 8, 2014

It's that magical time of year where we gather friends and family together to celebrate the holidays. We get to dust off our favorite decorations and set up our Christmas trees, and enjoy the same songs that fill us with holiday cheer every year.

My absolute favorite thing about the holidays is creating the large, extravagant meals for everyone. But what good is a beautiful meal without a beautiful table setting??

No good at all, I tell ya! 

So today I am going to show you how I created a beautiful table setting without breaking the bank. 

You definitely don't have to spend much to get a place setting that reflects your aesthetics. There are fantastic deals EVERYWHERE, if you know where to look.

So here is the list of where you can purchase most of the items pictured above or how to get the look with a little DIY.

1.  Gold Dotted Square Placemats from TjMaxx $14.99 for a set of 4  
2. Plaid Fabric Napkins from TjMaxx $4.99 for a set of 4.  
3. Striped Flatware from Target $24.99 for set of 4 
4. Plates and Light Pink Bowls from Ikea $2.99/ea and $4.99/ea   
5. Gold Rimmed Glasses $1/ea from Dollar Tree! 
6. Wine Glasses $1.99/ea from Ikea
7. Silver Tinsel Christmas Tree $1 at Dollar Tree
8. Gold Candle Holders and Gold Candles. These were passed down through the family, but its nothing that a holder from Dollar Tree and gold stray paint can't create! The Gold candles came from Target $4.99 for a pack of 2.

So, I should note that some of these items I already had in my home. You definitely don't need to go buy new wine glasses or new flatware, but the idea is to use what you have and accent with a few inexpensive items to really personalize your holiday dinners.

I hope I was able to inspire you to create a beautiful table setting this holiday!

P.S. Did you notice my black chalkboard wall and black Nate Berkus rug?
