A holiday tablescape featuring regional pieces made by local artisans is a natural fit for casual Christmas tablescape ideas. A touch of Louisiana “Seasoning” enhances the flavor.
A trio of Louisiana Cypress knee Santas crafted by local artisans make an appearance each holiday season.
Louisiana is truly a Sportsman’s Paradise.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year!
Burlap sandbags from Tractor Supply make perfect placemats for a natural tablescape. Natural raffia ties adorn white linen dinner napkins.
My favorite Black Friday purchase has to be the Biltmore For Your Home autumn birds salad plates. The set includes a turkey, pheasant, quail and mallard. The turkey is conspicuously absent due to turkey overload.
Louisiana pecans and fresh cranberries naturally make a beautiful addition to any table.
The Noritake Winton china has been in our family longer than I have.
It’s my parents wedding china, and I use it several times a year.
Plastic dollar store chargers were introduced to one coat of Rust-Oleum plastic primer, one coat of Rust-Oleum chalkboard paint latte, one coat of Annie Sloan chalk paint old white, and one very light coat of dark wax.
The place cards are exactly what I had in mind and printable “gifts” from Martha Stewart, of course.
Martha also furnished the idea of using wishbones in a Thanksgiving tablescape.
Silver spray paint made the wishbones table ready.
Once again tradition comes to the Thanksgiving table.
The cut glass celery dish was a gift from my maternal grandmother and is perfect for the cranberry sauce.
The salad plate pattern is Buchanan by Lenox. I paired it with a gold teaspoon I picked up in my rounds.
I love odd pieces and will find any excuse to incorporate them into a tablescape.
The parts come together and complete the place setting.
We set a place for our son, Jackson, even though he will not be home for the holidays this year.
Using fresh fruit of the season introduces instant color and smells wonderful.
The entire dining room is filled with the smell of pineapple, orange, and lemon.
Copper tipped pine cones reflect their natural beauty in the silver candlesticks.
The combination of metal colors blends well with the gold tones of the linens.
