A Gilded Pink Toile Christmas Table

Its all about Holiday Entertaining in today's posts (and all week long)
as part of Designthusiasm's Set + Style blog hop.
A special welcome to those who have just arrived from
my friend Courtney's ever gorgeous French Country Cottage!
But before we begin...
Can I just tell you all that I got my copy of this magazine
yesterday in my mailbox?! That is my living room on the cover!!
The COVER!! (Yes I am yelling.)
Ok, ok.... Just had to share.  I am over it. (Not)
Now back to our gorgeous table features.
Pink and Gilded and Toile for Christmas?
Yes. Yes. And Yes!
Why not use one's favorite things at Christmas?!
 Christmas means its the perfect time for fantasy and fairytale decor.
 Small twinkling trees are the perfect way to set the mood.
Layer in some of your favorite things with a bit of whimsy for good measure,
like these tiny white angel wings that I found at Joann's fabrics.
They came in pink too, and would have been so pretty....
But I wasn't sure then how I was going to use the little white wings when I bought them.
(The point being:  if you see something that captures you, buy it.
You will find a way to use it, I guarantee it.)
 Gold always elevates the mood, doesn't it?
 These striped gold and white candles 
(a knockoff of the high priced lovely Ana Candles that I have in my sconces) 
were a happy find at Marshalls~a box of six for the same price. 
Gold lusterware salad plates set atop gold rimmed dinner plates,
all vintage finds from various New England shops. 
Pink and celery green toile placemats were a set I made years ago
when I couldn't find what I wanted. They add a feminine French touch.
Repousse candlesticks in silverplate are new additions from a charming 
vintage shop in Dover, New Hampshire, called Just The Thing.
 A pair of grocery store topiaries were transplanted to some self-watering
 cache pots for a finished look. Rosy red cranberries were sprinkled about on the table,
inside the vase, and on top of the topiaries potting soil.
Grocery stores have so much goodness for decorating these days!!
And if pink isn't your thing....
think how easy it would be to change out the pink elements for red or white
if you wanted a more traditional Christmas look. 
Happy Holidays to you all, now let the parties begin!
Head on over to the wonderful blog of Sand and Sisal who is next up
on the tour.  Then check out the rest of my design blogger friends 
to see their special Christmas tables, it will certainly put you in the mood!
