Christmas Tablescape

I’ve been working on my Christmas tablescape.  You’ve probable seen several of my post about a couple of the items that I’ve used on the table.  Like the Christmas Floral Craft or the Gift Tag, well here’s the completed table.


Are you like me?  Everytime I get a new Pottery Barn catalog, I just drool all over every page!

(Via Pottery Barn)

When I’m looking for inspiration, I try to keep in mind what items I already have.

I already had the dessert glasses and poinsettias, I bought the short tapers from Hobby Lobby.  The table runner is from Pottery Barn, several years ago.

The salad plates are from Target (several years ago).  I use them every year.

I experimented with another one of my table runners, also from Pottery Barn.  I still don’t know which one I like best…maybe this one!

The candles lined up the middle of the table look great, I’m so glad I found that inspiration photo!  Can you see my roadside rescue candles in the background!  I love them!

Every salad plate is different, but they all look good with the casual white dinner plates.

I need to eat by candle light more often, love the glow!

Now for the big question, which runner would you use and which one copies PB the best?

This one?

Or this one?

    You did an amazing job! I was actually contemplating this copy as well, but I chose a different one. I just love this party and all the creativity we will see today. I thank you for joining in. I think I may put my link up soon, I have a feeling there are some anxious peeps out there.

    Okay…you were just having toooo much fun!!! I love the black & white fabric…it really makes the red pop! Great copycat job!

    Beautiful! I think the burlap copies PB the best because it’s neutral and has a more rustic feel. I love the burlap because it adds a more natural element to the table. You really can’t go wrong either way though!

    Hi Debbie,
    I love the look of both, but I’m really loving the the flowers and candles down the center. Very striking!
    I’m soooo behind, but will take my time and enjoy things this week. : )

    I like both copies. I guess it just depends on the look you want…a little more formal or a little less formal

    You got that dead on, Debbie! I love that centerpiece going down the length of the table! What’s also great is that it’s low enough that you can see over it and small enough that maybe you can leave them on the table during your meal.

    visiting from the Copycat party! : )

    You did a great job! I am in the PB Outlet every week! I won’t pay what the regular store charges. :)
    They both look good.

    Beauriful execution of the copy cat inspiration.. Love the flowers and candles down the center of the table. My vote goes for the burlap runner, just saying. Both are really pretty. Ginger

    I like the burlap one the best for a natural look. The black one looks classy, though. I guess it’s fun to use both!!

    This is great. Isn’t this such a fun challenge? Iremember when you did the magazine cover refresh /restyle and I was blown away by it. Here you go with another fun creation! I like the burlap runner best. Either way this is an awesome copy cat! Love the pointsettas in the glass dishes.

    One dresses it up and the other down..more casual. BOTH equally pretty just
    different. And Yes, drooling over PB:) Always look forward to a catalog in the
    mail:) My favorite I think…is the candles and poinsettias:)

    Fabulous copy cat challenge, I even like yours better because I’m in love with the salad plates, beautiful and difdferent! Thanks for sharing, I’m also at MM, but no copy cat except for the snowed mantel I copied from a Christmas store. Thanks for sharing. Have a terrific week. FABBY

    Amazing – love the natural texture of the table runner. Beautiful!

    I found you through the You’re talking too much link party – love it!

  34. 34

    I think the black-and-white runner is a winner in terms of the copycat aspect. The other one looks wonderful, too. The effect is quite stunning with the candles. Great tablescapes!

    Love this blog! I like the burlap runner…mainly because I just made one myself:) Also thrilled to see those plates – I have those from Target and keep llooking for more at goodwill. I had the white plates with the red rim that was sold with that series but somehow they all broke. Always love to see how something I have can be used! Also thanks for the comparison pics- I’m not good at taking a picture and coming up with my copycat version, but your pictures really let me see how you did it. Thanks!
