Anthropologie Inspired Tablescape

Another cold front is expected tomorrow!  Nothing says winter like a mug of hot chocolate topped with marshmallows so why not a marshmallow centerpiece!?!   My table is set very simple because with a 7, 8, and 11 year old that’s how we do things around here, but it’s definitely festive for the season — check it out — I love my Anthropologie Inspired Tablescape!

Just a few short months ago, the paint throughout our new home was dark and dreary.  The new wall color have definitely helped me feel like this home is mine!  If you’re not familiar with my floor plan yet, the entry and formal living room are to the left in the picture below and the kitchen is on the far right.

I saw a cake stand covered with extra large and mini marshmallows at one of my favorite stores, Anthropologie and knew my sweeties would enjoy sitting through a “fancy” meal with the promise of indulging on marshmallows at the end!

My new mercury salad plates are from the holiday collection at Target.  I love them, except removing the sticker on the underside is next to impossible.  What were they thinking!?!

The mercury dishes are so pretty, but my very favorite new addition is the Roze Tile Table Runner in Smoke Blue – love PotteryBarn!  I stopped in there a couple weeks ago and there was a bin of linens on clearance.  It’s hard to find real long table runners for a reasonable price.

 This one is 108″ x 18″ and don’t hate me, but it was marked down to $19.59 from $49.  Living close to a large PotteryBarn definitely has it’s perks.

I wanted to keep the table simple so I layered different candleholders onto the table in white, silvery mercury, and glass — to keep the look cohesive, I used all white candles.  I collected a few extra candleholders for my Christmas mantel (here) this year if you didn’t see it, it’s one of my favorite mantels ever!

In previous tablescapes I’ve shown you my china.  It’s the Noritake Parchment pattern.  It’s soft and versatile.

My chargers were a fun find years ago.  I always love the table pretties at Costco this time of year.

The most fun tables to set are ones created for special surprise dinners (when they don’t even know Moni and Pa are coming).  One of these days BBB are going to catch onto my very obvious hints (see below), but not yet thankfully!!!

  1. Wow, I LOVE that centerpiece! What a great (easy) idea, too. I found your blog looking for exterior photos, but I love all of it! I’m going to put you on my “Blogs I Follow” list.

  2. Beautiful table! I love how you make items from so many sources and price points look cohesive. And edible centerpieces are a favorite of mine!
    I found you through One Project at a Time at A Bowl Full of Lemons.

  3. Wow! Truly beautiful. I love the table runner, too. What an honor it would be to sit at a table setting that gorgeous.

  4. Gorgeous! Makes me want to go redo my table & decor or have a dinner party!

  5. What a beautiful tablescape! I love the huge marshmallows and the pretty plates. I got some champagne glasses at IKEA that were impossible to get the stickers off of…I wondered what they were thinking as well.
    Take care,
