Have you ever seen a beautiful home in a magazine and wished for a moment that you lived there? Many times those homes are totally impractical for our lifestyles, having been staged for photography, but they are truly picture-perfect. I love setting a beautiful dining room table because it allows me to create one of those magazine worthy moments in my home!
Last winter I tore out a page from Victoria magazine that featured a romantic gold and white Christmas Eve table setting. A few weeks ago I discovered that page in my Christmas inspiration folder and was excited to realize I had all of the components (minus the ginormous chandelier) to recreate the look! Here’s my take on Victoria magazine’s gold and white table setting!
In the video below I’ll give you a tour of the table setting and show you how I layered the table, from the tablecloth to the centerpiece!
One winter during high school, I visited my Nana and Papa in Kentucky for a couple weeks. Nana and I spent hours in their cozy library, reading Victoria magazines and listening to Rod Stewart’s Great American Songbook. This table setting reminds me of that visit – cozy, romantic and full of beautiful things that I love!
Do you ever eat by candlelight? I hope you’ll try it!
