What is the Pinterest Challenge?
Each month, we are given either a topic or a photo for inspiration. Think in terms of looking through Pinterest for inspiration. That is how Cindy gets inspired by the challenge. If it is photo inspiration, she visits the source and asks if they'd like to be our inspiration for the monthly challenge. It's that simple! It's such a fun post each month.
This month we are recreating a magical holiday table featuring deer, greenery, and brass inspired by Kelley from Kelley Nan. I have long been a follower of Kelly's beautiful blog. If you haven't visited, you are in for a treat!

Nighttime Christmas Dining Room with Simple Centerpiece
Kelley's table is classically elegant. The little gold deer are absolutely adorable.
I looked around online and in-store and just couldn't find something similar. I found a couple of contenders but just didn't want to drop big bucks for them. Honestly, I just don't need any more Christmas decor. I've been cleaning it out a lot in recent years and going with more greenery intermingled with existing everyday decor.
Here is my perspective on the elements that I take away from Kelley's stunning inspiration photo.
Wall Color: Benjamin Moore Collingwood. This color is a very pale creamy color but looks quite gold at night with the lights.
- Table Runner
- Faux greenery
- Brass and gold candle holders
- white taper candles
- white pillar candles
- Clear glass votives
- Christmas ornaments
- Christmas tree in the background
I decided to take bits and pieces from the inspiration tablescape and put my own spin on it by using what I had.
I started with a winter white velvet runner for my base.
I like to use an assortment of greenery picks on the base. I then fill in with a few floral picks in snowy eucalyptus.
I then positioned the brass deer and sleigh in the center of the table. It is the focal point of my centerpiece.
I then nestled brass candle holders along with mercury glass pillar holders and glass votives.
Battery-operated white tapers and pillars give this look a sense of safety and ease.
This simple white-flocked Christmas tree is perfection in its natural state.
I filled in sparse areas around the greenery with gold ornaments and votive candles.
Keeping the centerpiece fairly neutral with whites, greens, and gold will allow me to use different napkins and place settings to change up my color schemes.
One thing that we do is make a point of eating regularly in our dining room during the holiday season. It's so magical with the lights and tree to light up the space.
Up next on today's hop is my friend, Cindy, from County Road 407. You will love her budget-friendly tablescape for the holidays.
