Designing With PurposeOctober 16, 2019
Who knew……using math & computers to make original art!November 10, 2019
One of my favorite things about the holidays, other than spending time with family & friends is decorating the table! As many of you know, I am a NEUTRAL girl, and I do not like a lot of pattern or COLOR! So I set out to get inspired for the holiday table top design for 2019…
One of my favorite places for inspiration is ETSY. If you haven’t become acquainted with ETSY, you should! (www.etsy.com). I love ETSY, not just because of all the unique one of a kind items, but it is filled to the brim with creative juices AND you get to support artists and small start up companies all over the world. One of those companies is WallKnot (https://www.etsy.com/shop/WallKnot). They have a beautiful neutral tabletop designed around one of their beautiful handmade macrame table runners & my other favorite was the macrame chair backs! (do we have to wait till an event or holiday to use these?!)
Look no further than your local florist or even your backyard for the greenery. I have used both before! If you wish to reuse the greenery, get quality faux silk greenery from a craft store. Add some white flowers, candles and your dishes and flatware and you are set to amaze! I love the idea of adding your own person touches, such as a handwritten note to each guest setting, or photos of your family trips in small frames. Be creative and have it reflect you and your family.
I hope this has INSPIRED you to create your own special table top! If you have any photos of your own table top designs or have any ideas to share with others- please post!
