A few weeks ago, I showed you how I created this beautiful winter centerpiece made with faux greens, neutral textured ornaments and my favorite vintage toolbox. But I have not shown you the gorgeous tablescape I designed to go along with it for a dinner party I threw a few weeks ago.
What I love most about it, is the combination of formal and casual elements. You can dress this one up or dress it down depending on what you have on hand. While the overall look is pretty neutral, I incorporated some moody black touches to change it up. I love how it turned out.

How to Create this Winter Tablescape
Layers, layers, and more layers. Think layers when creating any tablescape because they bring warmth and personality to the table. When your are out shopping, pick up dining accessories that you can re-use over and over again. I create a lot of different looks using the same basic pieces.
Decorating the Table
Since I love to leave my farmhouse wood table exposed, I started with this beautiful jute table runner from Pier 1. I centered by winter centerpiece, then flanked both sides with these brass candlesticks from Target. For added mood and drama, I used black tapered candles. And boy do I love them! Don’t they look so cool?
As an aside, I love how these placemats make each place setting look. They vibe well with my garden-style decor and I use them in almost every tablescape. Guests love them and they are worth the purchase.
To add some elegance, I used my neutral Lenox fine china that was passed down to me from my grandmother. Whenever I can, I try to incorporate my Lenox in tablescapes because it is nice to be able to use them instead of keeping them tucked away in storage. And I love the gold rims on them! It adds a touch of sparkle to a casual tablescapes without overpowering it.
For some added bling, I used her lead crystal goblets and gold flatware. I don’t typically use this gold flatware set, but love how casually elegant it looks.
