This year we asked a few bloggers to get creative with our holiday collection from Martha Stewart Living at Home Depot. Here to share a how-to for an arctic table is guest blogger Alicia DiRago of Dismount Creative.
A few weeks ago I got an email asking if Id like to do a project with the Martha Stewart Living at Home Depot holiday decorations. I was really psyched for two reasons: 1. Last year I didnt decorate for the holidays and I still feel guilty about it. 2. We hosted our first holiday ever this year (Thanksgiving) so Ive been thinking about how to get the house ready.
Since we had Thanksgiving, a holiday that centers around eating, I decided to decorate our table. I ordered a variety of decorations from Marthas Arctic collection because I love the colors and hoped that the ice-y theme would distract me from the fact that it was still in the 80s outside. And the silver and blue is perfect in our dining room.
I used a few packages of the Cone Trees (the Home Depot picture makes them look a little crazy, but they are beautiful and super sparkly in real life) and wrapped a couple strands of ornament garland around and between them. Then I filled in the gaps with these ornaments.
I made the placecards using Instagram pictures from this year applied to ceramic tiles using Sparkle Mod Podge from the most recent Whimseybox. The placecards can then be used as coasters (yeah, Im still crazy worried about my beloved table) and can either be sent home with my guests, or enjoyed here the rest of the year. Heres a close-up:
