Christmas Tablescape in Shades of Blue and Green

For the Lake Bluff Christmas Home Tour, we decided to set the table in non traditional colors of green, cobalt blue, and purple. A collection of various patterns of vintage gold rimmed china was placed on top of the gold croco glass charger that we sell at the store. Cobalt blue water glasses were paired with mis-matched vintage crystal compotes and Waterford Powerscourt wine goblets. An organic touch was added with the leopard print napkins ( another best seller in the store) and natural horn sterling silver flatware. For the tablecloth, we sewed together several yards of powder blue taffeta and layered a green and blue netting table topper that was encrusted with sequins to add sparkle. Jeannie at Twigs made these beautiful little arrangements in antique champagne goblets of orchids, hydrangeas and ferns. A mixture of crystal and mercury glass candlesticks, fitted with crystal shades were placed down the center of the table. An old frame was embellished with old jewels in chartreuse, blue and clear and held a bed of mood moss with a reclining bronze cherub surrounded by brooches in the color scheme.

Vintage place card holders were placed in the compotes at each guest's seat. During the evening, when the candles were lit, the crystal and jewels on the table glowed with Holiday spirit. We will be joining for Tablescape Thursday. Come take a look for a little inspiration.
