white and natural.

White and natural, and a little mercury glass sparkle.
That was my theme this year. Here's what's going on with the dining table.
Decorating our dining table is just one of those little joys for me. No one will really get to see it, we head out for Houston for the week of Christmas. Maybe one of these days more people, besides just Blake, Dakota and me, will be able to enjoy the Christmas table. Or, the Halloween table, or Thanksgiving table.....
(more people = babies, and family)
I was most giddy about putting out our china. It stays securely in boxes in cabinets for about 49 weeks of year, so this time of year is extra fun! I love that stuff, probably more than one should love material possessions. Doesn't it fit in perfectly with my white, natural with a touch of sparkle theme?
The mercury vase and tea light holders are from West Elm, and they look a bamillion times better in real life than in this photograph. I officially spent up my gift card from last year's Christmas with this purchase, just in time for another one this year. Winky face to you... mom... who is reading this...
The candle stick holder to the left, reeeeally old Anthro, candle stick holder on the right, our "friendship candle holder" that each of us girls got from the flea market in Ft. Worth a couple years back.
Wreath on the herringbone mirror.
PS. I made those table runners with a little help from my trusty Iron-on hem tape. The ends are just folded to make a point. The fabric is white cotton with a subtle white stripe from Hobby Lobby. Easy!
Happy Christmas season!!
