My dear readers,
I have a confession…
I like to paint.
If it comes to me in blue…
I am going to paint it pink!
I spray paint to get the color I like as I did with the black candle stands you see below.
So come on over.
The teapot and coffee pot are on…
Do you hear the tea kettle singing?
I am waiting for you to join me for warm banana nut bread as I share a centerpiece and vignette that is so easy.
This centerpiece started with burlap table runners, which you can find here.
I love the juxtaposition of the rustic burlap, grapevine sleigh, and shiny copper metal with the elegant feel of the champagne colored glasses.
The bottom runner has an open weave while the top runner has a closer weave. You have seen both of these table runners in many of my tablescapes. You can see them here, Thanksgiving Dinners and Carving The Bird in case you missed it.
I had received the copper bowl several years ago from Only Daughter.
It came with a beautiful yellow and gold flower arrangement for my November birthday.
I really like the copper pedestal bowl and have used it numerous times for different decor. In the above pic, it anchors one end of the table. I added simple copper colored ornaments as well as gold ornaments.
The tall candle holders were originally black, but out came a can of copper spray paint and I sprayed sporadically to give a weathered/worn effect.
I actually didn’t mind the spray getting on a few of the already attached greenery at the base and under the candles. I had tried to take the greenery off, but it looked like it was on there for life, so I just left it alone and I really liked the way the candle holders turned out.
I had a large glittery deer in the sitting position, so I placed him on one side of the candle holder and a rustic sleigh that I found at Old Tyme Pottery a couple years ago, in the center of the table.
I put copper and gold ornaments in the rustic grapevine sleigh.
The chilled egg nog below gave a frosted look to the copper mule mug. I really liked that affect.
The copper mule mugs I found at Sam’s Club and I loved the cardinal sitting on a spool of twine…it is actually a Christmas ornament, but I loved the color it gave to the table.
I purchased the champagne colored water glasses at Pier 1, several years ago.
To complete the rustic look, I placed a few cinnamon scented pine cones in and around the table.
The Gingerbread Village is one of my favorite vignettes and it usually sits on one of my kitchen counters, although it has been known to move around. 🙂
My houses are from Byer’s Choice.
Each year I add a little somethin’ somethin’ such as the North pole sign.
Do you like to collect items for a Christmas vignette?
Hugs and have a Blessed Day.
