When it comes to holiday decor, I love a look that’s equal parts rustic and glam. This year for my holiday table I’m working in flashes of gold on an otherwise neutral palette. With just a little effort, a table full of things I already had feels festive and special enough for guests.
I dressed up a plain white tablecloth with an unfinished burlap runner, antler sheds and golden twig balls. Fragrant cedar boughs and real cranberries add bits of color and a fresh feel.
I couldn’t decide between these two DIY napkin rings so I used both and placed them on alternate settings. I wrapped sparkly gold ribbon loosely around brown napkins and tucked a sprig of cedar and a nametag inside.
For the cranberry napkin rings, I used a needle and floss to string a handful of cranberries into a circle shape. Just knot the floss around the last cranberry and rotate the knot the to underside of the napkin for a prettier look.
