My dining table is usually covered in blog and shop materials – fabric, pillows, rugs, packaging tape, receipts. It’s rarely clean enough to eat from (and we always eat at our island anyway). It’s not until the holidays roll around when I get the sudden urge to dress it up (see last year’s table here). Something about a set table reminds me most of Christmas time.
I fell pretty hard for all the copper decor this season. I usually lean towards brass as my metallic of choice, but this year I’m all about incorporating different tones of copper to bridge the warmth of my walnut dining table to go alongside my go-to golds.
I bought a few of these paper hanging stars for a baby shower I’m hosting this weekend, but then decided they looked perfect atop my IKEA bar cabinet. I guess I’ll have to go get a few more for the shower
The bottle brush trees alone were looking a little bare and lonely, so I clipped some branches from our Christmas tree – we got a flocked one this year! I had a few tubes of mini ornaments in copper and gold tones, left over from the Christmas challenge I did two years ago, that I sprinkled throughout the clippings and trees.
For the place mats, I spray painted some cheap mats from Ikea with Design Master 24 carat gold spray paint (it’s the perfect rose-gold!)
The geometric plates I found at Marshall’s almost 3 years ago. They’re DVF and I can’t find them online, although I’ve seen some olive colored ones on ebay… The black plates are from Ikea, they’re perfect, and cheap!
In case you’re interested, I put together a “get the look”! I love seeing these at the end of people’s blog posts.
OH, ps, if you’re wondering where my rug went, I sold it on the shop! I’m on the hunt for another…
Anything else not listed is either vintage or discontinued (like those DVF plates, sadface!)
