Setting the Table for Guests

If you are a Canadian like me,  you are in that strange decor stage between Thanksgiving and Christmas. I start getting all excited to put out my holiday decor but hold back the first few weeks of November…. at least until Remembrance day passes! I did however let myself buy these gorgeous new gold printed plates from the 40% off sale at Home Outfitters last week. They are Gluckstein Home  and the just look fab when you set the table. I used a mix of green and golds so it would not be over the top “Christmasy” and instead more of a classy winter dinner party look. I simply love these vintage style cocktail glasses I scored at Home Sense last year and the gold leather coasters are my favourite. The sparkly deer I picked up from Home Goods and I think it looks like it’s peeking out of the forrest with the faux fern plant behind it from Ikea. Now that the tables set, who’s coming over for dinner?!

I plan on starting to do my Holiday decorating this weekend, and transforming my home into a magical cozy wonderland. When do you start your holiday decorating?

Tray Styling and Treasures

It’s Sunday, my favourite day of the week! I’m sure it’s most peoples favourite day of the week, most of us don’t have to work, we can sleep in and enjoy a day of leisure. It’s the only day me and my hunny have off together so we cherish it. I have been so busy with work the last few weeks I have had no time for blogging! I thought it might be nice to share a few of my latest treasures I found for dirt cheap as well as my current tray styling.

I love having trays in multiple places around my house. I also love to change whats on them to give them a fresh new look. I usually change them at least every 2 months. Since we just had Valentines day, I styled one of my trays with roses, and these adorable glass bottles with gold arrows as corks. I found these gems in the strangest place, SAVE-ON-FOODS! They were on sale to boot, I think I paid $7 each for them! The white pineapple jar is my favourite, I have been looking for a good one for some time. The ones at my favourite store THE CROSS are $50, but I found this one as Real Canadian Superstore for $12!!

I love this ghost tray I also found at Superstore, I think it cost me $23! It looks so chic styled with a few coffee table books and a nice plant. This gold trimmed glass prism piece could be used as a small terrarium, I decided to just stuck a little candle inside.

This is one of my favourite scores ever! I was on a bidding wars site on Facebook when I stumbled upon this cute antique faux fur stool. I won the auction and got this gem for $20!! I am currently using this stool in our bedroom, it would look great at a nice vanity table.

What are your favourite fabulous finds?!
