Welcome to the second part of the Merry and Bright 2017 Holiday Home Tour!
Hi friends, if you’re coming from Rover at Home, welcome!! What a beautiful home right? I love all of Melanie’s unique touches. She is actually one of the co-owners of SmithHonig. I hope you enjoyed the first part of our Merry and Bright 2017 Holiday Home Tour last week. I love how blogs can inspire us to think outside the box and help bring some of that creativity in our own homes and make it personal to our lifestyle. Today, we’re sharing Part 2 and I’ll excited to show you some fun tablescapes I put together using products from Amara. This 3 part series is sponsored by SmithHonig and Amara but all opinions, thoughts and styling are my own. I hope you enjoy, friends!
This week, I had to take a shot of my little Emmy with our nephew’s dog, Mochi.
Gotta add an outtake!
I really love how my outdoor decor came out. The DIY garland is still going strong and the colors haven’t faded much.
For this year’s Christmas tablescape, I went the untraditional route and used these beautiful floral melamine plates from Amara. I thought the floral plates were so pretty and they came in a combination of 4 different floral patterns. I added a neutral plate on top with a Japanese rice bowl. I also mixed in some floral and neutral napkins. I chose these plates so that they work all year round. If you don’t have holiday plates, just mix and match what you have and create your own tablescape.
The centerpiece is just a long faux garland with some extra branches and ornaments.
I added the advent calendar from Amara to the dining room. It’s currently on sale for $12.
Across from the dining room is our piano room/den. This room served as the play room for over 5 years. I recently got rid of a bunch of toys and moved the rest upstairs into the media room. Now, this piano room serves as a study and I’ll be using it as my office starting in January. Since it already has a table, I thought I would add another tablescape because that’s what I like to do for fun. One day, I’ll repaint this room and get rid of the yellow/beige walls. We love adding a Christmas tree since the bay windows look out to our street.
I had these fun Christmas plates from last year and they add a bit of whimsy to the table. I sewed these napkins for my sister’s baby shower many years ago and I always bring them back out every Christmas. They used to be bed sheet!
The $10 foraged greenery centerpiece is so easy to make. You can watch this video to create your own!
A white tablecloth is always a good place to start. Add a simple placemat or charger and add your plate, napkin and small salad plate.
