Christmas Tablescapes

Wednesday, December 22, 2010

Ribbons wrapped around white candles are genius!

How lucky am I that I get off the hook from hosting Christmas dinner a second year in a row? Last year it was at Steve's mom's house and this year it's at my parents' house. That's not to say we won't be helping out, but it's just nice not to have the pressure of getting the house picture-perfect ready AND cooking a fabulous Christmas meal. Sorry Mom, I know it doesn't help that I just said that.

But I am actually kind of sad that I didn't have a good reason to create a tablescape. I mean, you don't have to have Christmas dinner to justify creating a tablescape, but when money is tight and your visions of a tablescape are bigger than your wallet, you tend to just not do it altogether. Which is what happened in my case.

For those of you who are lucky enough to set your table, I hope the images below will be somewhat inspiring if not helpful in getting your table ready. Oh, and check out last year's post on Christmas Tablescapes for more ideas!

Monique Lhuillier's table setting is just as dramatic and gorgeous as her wedding dress designs.


One of my favorite color combos - red and robin's egg blue.


Warm and inviting, the way it should be.




Perfect for a beach-y Christmas dinner.


As Rachel Zoe says, "I die."

  3. Tại chỗ lốc xoáy, hắn mở ra ngọc giản là có thể đến được nơi ước hẹn với Sất Hổ.

    Giờ khắc này, tại một mảnh nhỏ ở trung tâm của Tiên giới, Sất Hổ của Cự Ma tộc đang khoanh chân ngồi đó. Trước người hắn có một toà truyền tống trận.

    Ánh mắt của Sất Hổ vẫn bình tĩnh. Hắn ngồi ở chỗ này đã bảy tám ngày, một số tên thuộc loại đạo chích tiến đến nhưng đều trở thành vong hồn dưới tay hắn.

    Hắn ở chỗ này để chờ hai người!

    Sất Hổ tin tưởng rằng hai người này nhất định sẽ đồng ý đến, như thế chuyến đi lần này hắn mới có bảy thành nắm chắc là thắng lợi trở về.

    Hắn tin tưởng, sau khi xem qua ngọc giản, hai người kia nhất định sẽ động tâm. Dù sao hấp dẫn như thế, bất cứ kẻ nào cũng khó có thể kháng cự lại được.

    Cho nên Sất Hổ cũng không vội vã.

    Hai người kia hắn đã chọn lựa kỹ mới quyết định mời tham gia. Người thứ nhất tạm thời không nói đến, dù sao danh khí của hắn cũng thật lớn, hơn nữa cũng có một chút quan hệ

It is good to know that it requires no magic to tone down the shade of a bright white paint. Doing this is as simple as adding a darker stain into the paint little by little to transform it into an off white shade that you wish to have.

When you're ready to stop taking your medication, it must be slowly decreased. And even this gradual process can still produce those adverse effects.

Nestled on the lip of a large, semi circular bay on the east coast of the country's North Island, Napier seems unlikely as the obvious setting for what experts have described as the world's most complete collection of art deco buildings, a style nurtured far, far away on the other side of the globe back in the 1920s through to the '40s. But there's a good explanation for the anomaly, and it's all down to something else that, sadly, New Zealand has become known for: an earthquake..
