Having only one holiday at our house now means more planning and fretting over holiday decorations. So...the search has begun. Every year I struggle with how to decorate my table, but this year is the year! (Said with hesitation.) This is the look I'm going for...
I love earthtones, and this one was right up my alley. It's not quite holiday-ish enough for me, but it's right on track.
I'm thinking either pears for the place cards or little gourds. We'll see which one is cheaper.
Martha Stewart What are the chances that I'll find a bendable stick in my backyard? Love the colors though.
One more complexity is how busy to make it. You want the visual appeal, but you don't want to have to stand up to see your family on the other side of the table. Don't those colors just evoke warmth? Ahhhh...
And finally, I have been an avid follower of This Young House for some time now, and they wrote this post just for me. Well, they don't know that, but they did. I LOVE green and this tablesetting, and it actually looks like something I could do. Isn't it divine?
And look! Someone must have told them that white is my all time favorite color, so they mixed it up a little bit in case I couldn't picture it for myself! How simple, yet how elegant!
Well, I'm sure I'll be back with some more thoughts on this, but it's certainly "on the brain" right now. Anything's better than more spooky houses and sparkly witches, right?
