Festive Tuesday Tablescape





I haven't done a tablescape in ages (go to Susan's Between Naps on the Porch for some more fantabulous tables in full festive glory) and this one I did at a hundred miles an hour, I literally threw it together I was in that much of a rush.  I did though have time to think about it beforehand, in fact a day hanging around waiting for Miss Beach Cottage meant I had the table mentally planned out.  

If you are over lookin at my white tables you might be thinking here she goes again but this plain canvas is still working well for me in terms of ease, budget and skill.  And what's that saying?  Don't fix what ain't broke...

This was really very easy and all the Beach Cottage trademarks (haha like I've got trademarks) - white, sparkles, more white, heaps of candles and tealights, a few white flowers and because I'm feeling decidedly jolly, a splash of red...I love how it turned out...would ya like to come over for some Christmas Pudding?






If you've popped by the Beach Cottage from one of the Christmas parties going on in blogland, welcome and here are a few other Beach Cottage festive decs...

I think those are agapanthus(sp)? Anyway, they are wonderful. I never thought of using them in an arrangement...I will now. Thanks.

Now that is divine! :) Have a good evening. :)

That centerpiece is a stunner. I love it. Fresh flowers make a real statement. Your clear baubles and the ribbon around the stemware bases add punch to your table.

Your table is beautiful. I love the agapanthus!

I love your tablescape and centerpiece is eye catching:-)

It is magical looking.

Beautiful tablescape!

Wow girl, for someone throwing this together you did a marvelous job. I love all the crisp white and crystal. Your candles add a nice glow. I love the ornaments on the back of the chairs..truly eye catching..hugs ~lynne~

Beautiful! I love the white with touches of red by simple ribbons. It's so beautiful! Deb

Love the all white theme with a touch of red. The use of the aggies is a great idea. One of the lesser known flowers, still one of my favorites. Usually they are found in periwinkle.
