Oh My Darlin' Tablescape

This is the perfect tablescape for this sort of in between time--end of November fall/beginning of December wintertime. When i saw this setting in the Lowe's Creative Idea Magazine, i said to myself, Self, this we could do.  We've got vases and we love clemetines--the only hard part will be ensuring no one eat said clementines.



Yay!  Loves it.




 




Don't you think the candlestick mimics the look of the pinecone?



 





You better believe the boyfriend was thrilled to see that he was finally given the ok to tear into the clementines. 





 




The only item that was actually purchased for this table was the clementines for 5 bucks a box. And considering that they did double duty as decor and healthy snacks, i'd say that's money well spent. Enjoy!

Long time no blog see! I am finally getting to my projects and blog again. Glad to see my favorites are still around after more than a year!

I love the centerpieces! Great job and glad the boyfriend FINALLY got to eat the clementines!

Stunning centerpiece idea! And so perfect with those wonderful pinecone dishes!

LV said...

I really like the pine cone effect on the table. You could get plenty of them around here.

Mary said...

Beautiful tablescape! Love your pinecone dishes.

Linda @ A La Carte said...

"Self" you did a fabulous job! I truly L.O.V.E. this! On your dark table the dishes and the centerpiece just pops! I am so impressed! Who is the maker of those dishes? They are really pretty!
Big Hugs and oh yes you had me at Clementines!! Hugs, Linda

Hello, Miss Cape on the Corner! What a beautiful, beautiful table setting! I am sure that getting the natives to keep away from anything edible before it is photographed is quite the task. I know it is around here! You did a really great rendition of the photo, and I like that you applied your own creativity. The centerpiece items go great with the cool dishes!!! I DID see how the bottom of that candlestick looked kind of like a pinecone! Love your new word, too! :-)

Hi, I’m Anne from Life on the Funny Farm (http://annesfunnyfarm.blogspot.com), and I’m visiting from Make It Pretty Monday.

This looks great! I never would have thought to use oranges in a Christmas table display, but it really works! Well done...

Anyway, thanks for posting this. If you’ve never visited yet, I hope you can pop by my blog sometime to say hi…

Love how the orange looks with the pinecones. Awesome!

yourfriendrobin said...

Wow what a gorgeous table set up. I love those oranges, too. If I did a table like that I would enjoy it so much... for about 3 minutes until my boys ate all those oranges. :)

The 2 Seasons said...

What a great tablescape. Plus your dishes work great. So fun!

Emily@TheWickerHouse said...

Love the mix of oranges and pinecones. It looks natural and colorfull.

I just love the color combination in your vases with the pinecones and the oranges. What a pretty combination and they are so stunning in the vases too!

Beautiful, classy and fun! I was just thinking what to do with two large bags of oranges. I love the idea of a pop of color in with pine cones and greenery!
