Welcome friends, it is my absolute pleasure to be part of Chloe’s ( Celebrate and Decorate) Christmas Tablescape blog hop. She has organized tablescape hops throughout the year, and it is an honor to be included with so many talented tablescape bloggers. It’s a lot of work to organize and keep everything moving beautifully, and she has done an amazing job. I hope you will join me in saying thank you for all she did to make these wonderful hops so much fun. Thank you, Chloe! My Glimmer of Gold Christmas tablescape was a joy to create. Thank you for hopping over from Monday’s link, Corner of Plaid and Paisley.
My Hubby bought me this beautiful angel about 18 years ago. Her wings are tattered, her dress has yellowed and she is like most of us, perfectly imperfect. Although I intend to give her a complete refresh for next Christmas I wanted to use “her” just as she is for the center of my Glimmer of Gold Christmas Tablescape.
I took this long photo of the tablescape just before twilight.
My supervisor Izzy is always close by, I think he was dreading going out in the snow to do his business. He doesn’t like snowballs on his undercarriage ( wink). Hubby cleared a “potty path” for him. But sometimes a guy just has to go off of the beaten path and into the frozen tundra.
As the snow blew and the sun began to set the amber glow from our dining room brings an amazing color of glimmering gold to the table.
I spilled golden beads across the table and built my tablescape from there. The table runner has beads and sequined embroidered snowflakes. I think it came from Ross a few years ago.
We’ve had these reindeer for many years, I bought them at Macy’s. The victorian angels came from a local French shop, Le Gaden de Rêves. It’s gone now, but I loved stopping in there every chance I could.
I added a little bit of gold on the buffet (it’s been changed now) for some background color.
The iridescent snowflake placemat, a gold charger, and Corelle dishware make a lovely setting.
The wine glasses were a dollar store find and the napkin rings are from Bed Bath and Beyond. I think they have the same ones out every year.
The gold embroidered blessed napkins are from Nordstrom rack. I love the look of embroidery, I wish I had the time to do it.
I added little gold tassels to the wine glasses and the joy sign from Michaels on the opposite side of the angel.
The only purchase I made was at the dollar store for the wine glasses. Our stemware is all in pairs.
I hope you have enjoyed my Glimmer of Gold Christmas Tablescape. I invite you to continue the tour to Panoply and please come back on Friday and see them all.
