I picked up a bunch of terra cotta pots in varying sizes along with a couple of shipping tubes, bright gold mugs and small containers and stuffed them full of fake succulent plants and Peet moss. I kill every plant I come in contact with so I wasn’t taking any chances on this centerpiece. I also found a matching set of antler candlestick holders that got a few coats of gold spray paint. I used a few black and white decorative ribbons and twine to dress up the ‘planters’ and of course, some of them were painted gold as well. I laid out a full table length burlap runner and arranged the planters between the two candlestick holders, varying the sizes and ‘plants’ throughout.

Each place setting had either gold or silver flatware and coordinating gold or white napkin, wrapped in twine with a few little twigs tucked inside. (I left them in for looks but before guests actually sat down, I went around and pulled the twigs out) I hand wrote guests names on brown paper tags and tied them on to mason jars as place markers so guests knew where to sit.

I liked the use of mixed colors in the flatware and napkins. A happy accident really since I couldn’t find 9 napkins and 9 sets of flatware that matched. The tablescape turned out exactly how I envisioned it and went perfect with the table and even the food!

And of course, in typical Christine style, I decided to take out the terribly tight elastic and hem the length of an old Target maxi skirt moments before guests arrived. I was really pleased with the updated look.
