While designing this Rustic Glam holiday tablescape for the Holiday Tablescape Blog Hop, a more masculine vibe began to emerge. Given the season and the perceived gender, lots of natural elements and texture helped to convey the mood.
The table covering here consists of three layers. A hunter’s green tablecloth went on first. Followed by a teal and burgundy thrift store plaid remnant. I think this one screams masculine! The last is a brown faux fur throw that came from Burlington’s.
When using multiple cloths inevitably one of them is going to shift. After spending way, too much time rearranging them, my solution was to use some nonstick wall putting to hold them in place. It didn’t completely solve the problem but it was a big help.
Rustic Glam Holiday Centerpiece
In my baking closet, I found an old beat up 12×18-inch baking pan that is way beyond it’s prime. It’s old and grungy and I will never bake in it again. However, it is quite rustic and makes a great vessel for a centerpiece.
Thanks to some recent and past treasures from Michaels my centerpiece came together easily. The copper and teal cake stand adds a bit of glam. It is also the base for my glittery reindeer. I’m still building up my collection of lanterns and at 50% off this one had to be mine. Inside is a flameless candle that will cast a beautiful glow at night. Also from Michael’s are the silver antlers and the copper candlesticks are from Joann’s.
Seasonal picks and faux fruits fill in the spaces along with sprigs of eucalyptus. Where has eucalyptus been all mine life, it smells amazing!
The stack begins with a copper acrylic charger. Followed by dollar store brown dinner plates. The brown plate is wrapped with a teal napkin to bring in a tiny pop of color. The small square camo look plate that sits on top is “Elements Cedar” by Noritake. This pattern is no longer available. Gold antler Christmas ornaments are a take home favor.
My Hamilton Forge flatware is slowly becoming the workhorse of my collection. It doesn’t hurt that I’m an earth-toned kind of gal and absolutely love it.
To round out the setting I’m using teal thrift store goblets and Avon Cape Cod ruby red goblets. This Avon collection is very old and can be found at Amazon.
