One of the funniest things about Pinterest is that the longer you stay on, the more you see some of the same images come around and around. This picture is one of those but one that takes my breath away every time I see it.

The cascading flowers are unbelievable and unreal! If I walked into a room with a table like this, I’m not sure I could do much else besides gawk and gush. The white tablecloth, candles and ghost chairs are pretty fabulous as well but those flowers. Man, that is how you do a floral arrangement!

It is definitely the most wonderful time of the year! The house lights are up, the tree lights are on and my dining room table is set and ready for a great meal with anyone who wants to drop by. I love seeing friends and family as much as possible, let me know if you want to come by for a warm bite to eat or a nice hot toddy. 🙂

I kept our table as simple as possible while still feeling festive. I wanted our decorations this year to be a nice combination of traditional and modern so almost everything is green, white and silver with natural touches.

I used silver chargers from Bed, Bath & Beyond layered with our wedding china plates and a mix of salad plates from I got on clearance from Pottery Barn three years ago and my mom’s Christmas Spode china. The water glasses are our crystal ones from the wedding but I’m still on the hunt for some fun and cheap wine glasses. Any suggestions?

I used a natural, textured runner from Target on top of my mom’s white linen tablecloth. (see a pattern here? she lets me borrow a lot!) The mercury glass vases are the cheap ones from Target and I wrapped two Dollar Tree glass vases in cinnamon sticks. Both are filled with flameless votive candles that are 3/$1 at the Dollar Tree – such a great deal! The jute tree in the middle was a Christmas craft fail from last year – remember that one?

I love these glittery snowflake ornaments I got at Dollar Tree last year! They were 3/$1 and I thought they were so cute. This year, I used jute twine to tie them to the back of the chairs and add some sparkle and fun to something besides the table. I keep seeing people tying things on the back of the dining chairs and I love the extra added touch it gives to the whole look.

Here’s another look at the whole table. I’m still finishing up the vignette on the buffet in the back of the room – I’ll definitely show you that very soon!

I hope you enjoyed looking at my table, thanks for joining me! I’m excited to see what everyone else does, so I’m definitely going to visit as many other linked posts as I can.

It’s Overflowing: Christmas-scapes party

Confession: I LOVE Ellen! I have watched her show almost from the beginning and I just think she is absolutely wonderful. She brings a very fresh, fun and sincere energy to daytime television. Today was her season premiere and I love the new set design! These are the only two photos I could find since it just premiered today so bare with me.

In this photo, you can see her new coffee table that is made out of a tree stump! I go ga-ga over tree stumps as side tables and love this extra large one as a coffee table. I have serious table envy!

In this photo (I know, I know) you can almost see her new side decor. If you’ll look around Ashton’s rump, you can see the big spheres and orbs that she has nestled around the plants. I love them and love how they are grouped together yet thrown around in a natural and casual-type feeling. So cool!

I got these photos from the Ellen Show website but maybe you have seen some better ones? If so, please pass them on!
