Welcome to this month’s Tracery Style Session! Paige and I decided to style a festive table to inspire all the family and friend gatherings you may have planned over the holidays.
We used a home in recently designed by the Tracery team in Rosemary Beach. Isn’t it lovely? Yep, that’s the beach on the other side of those windows…the house is a reverse living plan which means the kitchen and family room on the second level. Makes for beautiful views. I’m obsessed with those white leather side chairs. Love that they’re so chic yet you can easily wipe ketchup off of them at a family dinner. That’s what I call realistic design.
For our style session, we created two VERY easy centerpieces for a holiday dinner. By easy, I mean there is no strategic flower arranging and no hassle.
Here is the first look.
The greens are Magnolia branches I clipped from our woods here – we love bringing elements from the outside onto the table. You could use any indigenous greens for your centerpiece. We embellished the greens with painted pine cones, mercury votives from Tracery and these pretties as parting gifts. This literally took 5-7 minutes to arrange.
KID ALERT: give your little one a very small paint brush and some red paint to “help” with painting the pine cones while you spray paint the others. Keeps ‘em busy and happy.
The next version uses all of the same elements but is centered around a mossy wreath and simple hurricane with a large candle inside. It’s a little more structured and would be a great option for a square or round table.
Paige took the clipped branches and nestled them around the wreath then placed the red pine cones inside the leaves…
This one was easy peasy. And we love the pops of red mixed in!
NOW for our giveaway…one lucky winner will receive a dainty mercury covered dish from Tracery. I have to tell you that these are super sparkly and can be used for just about anything. What a perfect little Christmas gift!
HOW TO WIN: leave a comment telling us what favorite dish you most enjoy cooking or eating over the holidays. And maybe you can share an idea for a delicious Christmas dinner menu because I haven’t planned our family’s dinner yet. Eeek! : )
