This room was super fun to put together. I knew I wanted something with a touch of glamour since the dining room is adjacent to the living room which of course, is my official "glam" room.
I always have to have an element of fun in a room, I decided to go with sequins and plaid and honestly, I am loving the end result! I was beyond excited when I found the plaid fabric as it was the perfect colour way for this room and a great way to tone down the glam of the sequins. I bought a single yard of the sequined fabric and cut it in half length wise to make the runner. The grey fabric was very cheap, under $3 a metre.
I chose to go with a swag over the mirror, which I made using two bundles of winter greens. I used green florist wire and attached the branches to some twine.
I'm thrilled with how the place settings turned out. I decided to layer the plaid fabric with white & silver placemats that we already owned. Ribbon and a piece of winter greenery finishes off each the setting.
I once again used the same white bowl that was the centrepiece for our Thanksgiving tablescape and Grandma's crystal. A couple of gold & green topiaries from Homesense, scattered ornaments and bundled winter branches finish off the table.
Because the sequins speak so loudly, I didn't add too much to the table. Here's how it looks!
Truth be told, I definitely set this up too early and some of the branches are beginning to wilt/brown. Lesson learned for next time!
