Our next Holiday Table Challenge entry is from Chris Nease of Celebrations At Home
, one of my daily go-to resources for event planning inspiration. Chris founded Celebrations At Home
in the Fall of 2008 with the idea of making the smaller celebrations in ones life, stylish and memorable. She has always had a passion for entertaining, going back to age 18 when she invested in a set of ‘good china’ while in college! Chris has always loved combining her talents and passions to plan and design a multitude of parties, showers, and small weddings for friends and family, taking care of every detail from food to entertainment. She seamlessly showcases her ideas daily on Celebrations At Home
, and gives easy instructions on how to recreate her ideas at home.
Now, on to the good stuff! Without further ado….Chris’s Holiday Table Challenge entry (with description from her):
I wanted to create an elegant holiday party that would translate to other celebrations (anniversary, special birthday, wedding) throughout the year. What says “celebrate” better than black & white & silver & sparkle?
The table was layered with an acrylic beaded curtain, a mirrored tray with silver candle holders & shiny ornaments, and silver chargers trimmed with marabou boas. Each guest has a napkin wrapped with ribbon tied to a festive balloon. This adds height to the table as well as adds to the party atmosphere. The white hydrangeas placed on pillar candlesticks, and fluffy boa trim evoke the feeling of a snowy winter’s night, while the ornaments and ornament place card holders convey Christmas and New Years Eve.
At the center of each plate is a mini martini glass filled with chocolate bonbons. The glittery bonbons from Bedazzle My Bonbons
are the perfect unexpected touch to serve for dessert or as a take-home favor. More sparkle is added with edible glitter, from Sweets Baking Supply
, applied to the rim of the glass, and an acrylic droplet hanging off the side.
This table would be easy to re-create, and I hope you are inspired for your own celebrations! Happy Holidays!
