I have been thinking about what I might do to set the table for Christmas and was super inspired by Dian's lovely table of all op-shopped things! I found it a bit of a challenge as even though I have a fair bit of opshopped stuff, our main dinnerset and cutlery that we usually use were gifts, but I think I managed to put together a reasonably good looking opshop only table!
Most of the stuff was all purchased this year I think! (a nice reflection on the year as I think this is the 1000th post, Yay!) The top table is a bit of a pineapple theme with the napkin holder (sans napkins) and the pineapple dish of cherries, then in the second one I played around with using a raw silk scarf as a table runner down the middle. I think the colours go nicely together, sort of retro christmassy colours!
Then I played around with this coffee and cake table setting (I really should have made a cake for the plate) I think it's a bit jungle looking, don't you? :o)
It was really good fun putting together different settings. I think I might have a themed dinner party one day and set the table accordingly! Thanks for the inspiration Dian! :o)
