Ready for a little Christmas cheer? Last week I shared with you my pink and sea foam Christmas Tree (complete with my Mary’s Angel collection from Hallmark) and I mentioned that I was extended the pink and sea foam theme into the dining room!
Which makes this reveal even more exciting!
Especially if you follow me on Instagram (I literally unbox this little gingerbread house in my stories)… because most of this little table was found last year after Christmas. In fact I fell in love with the places and the gingerbread centerpiece from photos online… and spent quite a few hours tracking them down! I was so excited to get them in the mail last January and I just wanted it to be Christmas again so that I could set a new Christmas table!
Which is why I’m jumping on the opportunity to set my table early this year… then I can enjoy it as long as possible.
Ready to jump in?
Are you not obsessed?!
I did not buy the plates and gingerbread to go together but they work perfectly! It works even better when you see the color scheme of the nativity on my pie safe and the colors on my pink and sea foam tree across the room. I even threw a few sea foam glass trees into the forest on my island this year to tie the whole thing together.
Although you’ll have to wait until my entire Holiday House Tour is complete to see those!
Either way let’s jump into the full list of everything I’ve used this year.
- White Faux Fur Table Runner
- Gingerbread House Centerpiece
- Snowflake Cake Stand
- Snowflake Chargers
- Pink Dinner Plates
- Fitz & Floyd Classic Choices Winter Holiday Santa Portrait
- Oneida Countess Silverware
- Green Knife Rests from Hungary (bought at an antique shop, I found several online here!)
- Light Pink Water Goblet Old Williamsburg
- Light Pink Champagne/Tall Sherbet Old Williamsburg
- 14″ Gingerbread Tree
- Assorted Mercury Glass Trees
- Grandeur Noel Collectors Edition Porcelain Angel Set
If you watched the video on this little tablescape you’ll know that it took a minute to come together. I knew I wanted to use my new Fitz and Floyd salad plates, the gingerbread centerpiece and the nativity on the pie safe but that was about it.
From there it was just about what would make these components pop. So we went with a solid fuzzy faux fur table runner and pink plates to make Santa’s robe pop. If you wanted to highlight the green instead of the pink you could use white plates and that green band around the outside would look fabulous!
From there it was easy to grab a cake stand to give the gingerbread centerpiece a little height and a few snowflake chargers for the two outside plates. Then I picked a few smaller mercury glass trees for around the centerpiece and behind the nativity… these help tie the dining room to the mercury glass forest on the kitchen island. I used a similar mercury glass forest in last year’s blush and rose gold decor setup.
Although last year I had a few sweet little gnomes tucked into the forest!
Once I had a few pretty pink mercury glass trees picked out it was easy to mirror that color in my drink ware… so I grabbed a few pink drink glasses and the matching dessert dishes.
The finishing touch was a few antique green knife rests to pull back in that sea foam color near the flatware. These are a little more green than sea foam but they work with the mint in the plates and the sea foam in the gingerbread to read as a cohesive table. So I’ll take it!
Last but not least I decorated my little “buffet area” on the pie safe. This is such a funny area to decorate and usually I leave it as a functional space with serving bowls or my antique silverware caddies (like I did last month with my rose gold flatware for my pretty blush and rose gold Thanksgiving table).
This time I put allllll of that away to make room for my new pink and sea foam nativity set (I’m definitely digging those colors lately)! Honestly these pieces weren’t all meant to go together: the main holy family is one piece while the surrounding angels area completely different set. But the overall style and colors complement each other perfectly. I found both parts at different antique stores in different cities over a few months… they were meant to be mine.
They are definitely breakable though so I thought tucking them into this pie safe might keep them safe from all my fur babies… I wish they would go underneath a bit more but close enough!
I hope you enjoyed my little Christmas table! If you’re looking for more you can check out my pastel tablescape (with the sweetest puppy salad plates) from last year here. Or check out the entire tablescape category to see a few other tables you might like!
Wish me luck as I finish decorating for Christmas! We’ve still got a long way to go!
