This is the first Christmas me and my (newly married) husband will spend together in our new home! Wow what a crazy year, we sold his condo right before COVID hit and bought a beautiful brand new townhouse. We moved into the home just before we got married in September. This is the first home I personally have ever owned myself so it feels very special! We have spent the last few months decorating it and making it feel like ours. The last thing to come is our custom made dining table which arrives tomorrow and I couldn’t not be more excited that it is coming before Christmas day.

I styled our brown wood loaner table (which I borrowed from my work) earlier this month to do a practice run for the real Christmas dinner! I did not have a dining room or table last year in our condo so we ate dinner on bar stools in the kitchen. So I’m obviously over the moon happy to be in this beautiful home with a brand new kitchen and proper dining room to make dinner in this year.

I wanted it to look festive with natural elements. I didn’t need to buy much to make this table look amazing. I picked up the distresses gold short candle holder at a thrift sore for $1 and the pinecones and twine are from the dollar store. I was perusing Pinterest and decided that I really wanted to do black napkins this year. I don’t have any napkin rings so I made some with small gold ornaments and twine, cute right?! The felt deer wine glass charms I also found at the dollar store. I foraged some fresh greenery in the woods by my house and layered the centre of the table it, some green and gold candles (I had already) and pine cones. Super simple and looks gorgeous. I used green and wood chargers under the dinner plates. This table took less then 15 minutes to set up. I hope it inspires you. I will share more about my new home soon.
