Holiday golden sparkle

Hello, friends! Happy Monday! I’m back from my mini-vacation, ready for new challenges and lots of inspiration (by the way I missed your blogs so much!). With Christmas being just 12 days away (can you believe it?) it’s the right time to get in the holiday mood for real, if you still didn’t. I’m continuing with my virtual home and tree holiday decorating and if my Christmas tree was so non-traditional, with a fresh color scheme (see here), then I couldn’t resist keeping it all simple (or not) about my tabletop – sparkling gold with modern and glamorous touches. I’ve seen inspiring images in the latest Lonny (have you checked it yet? it’s a stunner!) and so I felt it’s the perfect direction for me this year! Here are some ideas:

Gold and sparkle is amazing, but to make it all a winter wonderland add some snowflakes (as napkin rings, for example), stars and angels and you’re sure to have a pretty tablescape!

How will you decorate your table this year? What color scheme will you go with?

    Christmas is still held at my parents’ home, so I luckily am not in charge of any decorations or place settings. I do love the gold dishes though — they’re amazingly timeless and work so well for any occasion.

    I think we’ve been looking at the same spread! I actually went ahead and bought a bamboo inspired brass/gold flatware on ebay a few days ago! Can’t wait to get it! (this girl is planning some serious table settings in the future ;))

    Have totally been missing our morning chats! Hope things are well!!
