Today’s post comes from Aimee of Aimee Siegel Creates (we featured her a little while ago) She is going to share so easy ideas to spruce up your Holiday Dinner table. For more great ideas throughout the year, make sure to follow her blog or even have her come over and do it for you. Enjoy!
I’m so excited – and honored – that Lindsey asked me to share some holiday table styling ideas with you all. I will, honestly, say this: even though I am artsy/craftsy sort of lady, even I get discouraged when I see complicated DIY projects that involve so many pieces and supplies (that all cost money) that I don’t easily have on hand.
With that in mind, I wanted to share some simple, easy, inexpensive and pretty ideas (four great words, right??) with you that hopefully you can recreate with what you already have, what’s right outside your door, or with a simple grab of a $4 or $5 dollar bunch of flowers while you’re picking up those last minute holiday dinner ingredients at your local grocery store.
Here are a few different looks you can create, all with just using dollar store clear glass column vases, in a couple of different heights and plain white plates. My collection of plates are actually all from Goodwill!
My first idea came to me to a couple years back, when I was wishing for a white Christmas, all the while knowing that it’s pretty much not really (ever) going to happen in Nashville. But, a girl can dream….
With snow in mind, I took some baby’s breath, that I had on hand at the time, and started playing around with it – placing it inside of some clear column vases that I turned upside down. It was so simple and so pretty, that it is still, to this day, one of my favorite holiday centerpieces I’ve created.
If you don’t have the little trees to go on top and around the vases, you can even just add a clear (or colored!) glass votive holders with a candle inside. That would be a very simple…and very elegant…touch.
The detail of adding a sprig of the baby’s breath to each plate, with a “Let it Snow” handwritten on white card stock, makes me smile. Of course, you could always personalize it and add your guest’s name instead of the song lyric, if you wanted to.
