Recently I asked if this centerpiece looked at all familiar…
If you come here often, it should have. 🙂
With our house on the market, I’ve wanted to keep a tablescape on the table at all times, so I’ve been quick-changing this centerpiece—since Christmas!
Want to know the trick? It’s LAYERING.
In the #1 tablescape, I went super quick-and-simple with pinecones, fresh greenery, and vintage Silent Night stenciled ornaments in a wood tray.
Then, after (an unseasonably hot) Christmas, I was ready to cool things off a bit. In my #2 tablescape I added a few rocks and sweetgum balls to the pinecones for a little more texture then sprinkled them with faux snow. The red and green Silent Night ornaments were replaced by a single stenciled Winter-scene vintage ornament (n the prettiest aqua color!)—and a large beaded snowflake ornament. Then—because I wanted to an aqua and red tablescape—I added a red transferware vase and stuck in a few aqua beaded picks for height and *bling*.
Finally, after a few days of beautiful snowfall, I was ready for a
change snowman! Tablescape #3 features more faux snow and a trio of tiny mercury glass ornaments in a lidded candy dish (sans lid), with a cute little snowman set atop. That replaced the vase… and the vintage ornament was removed.
The tables look very different, but it was really just a matter of a few quick LAYERING changes.
If you look closely, you’ll see the same white plates and flatware in each tablescape, and the same placemats and candles in #s 2 and 3.
Sssssh… Don’t tell anyone quick-changing a centerpiece is as easy as 1-2-3. Next time just impress ’em!
