And so it goes… we find ourselves at the end of another year! So crazy how this feels like it passed so fast?! Anyway we’ll get to that later- first, let’s continue on with the festivities! Continuing on from the colors and look from my tree, I wanted to make a matching centerpiece for my table. I used an old vase from West Elm, but instead of placing any branches, I decided to turn it into a candle holder. This is a fun little trick if you have a vase that has a wider neck. Simply put a circular mirror inside!
I also used a small circular mirror to cap off this Ferm Living vase, and I put a battery powered votive on that one.
I reused a DIY terra cotta pot candle holder from my 2013 Holidays and added that in since it picked up the peachy tones I have on the tree. When I was at CottonOn Kids recently (their bedding is so fun!) I picked up a few of these concrete candles (I can’t find them online but they were in-store by the cash register).
They tied in nicely with the grays and blues I have going on. I used one in the centerpiece and placed a few more around the house.
When it came to actually serving on the table, these great graphic placemats from Arro Home were perfect!
Finally, for my gift wrap, I kept with the color palette and played around with layering royal blues with gray, black, and made some gift tags using the same nail polish method as my ornaments. I also speckled some black bags with white paint, and tied pom poms in lieu of ribbon bows.
And there you have it! Happy Mundane Holidays 2015! As I mentioned in the beginning of this post, I can’t believe how fast this year has gone by. I’m definitely looking forward to the holiday break. I call this time “holiday healing” – time to stop, clean up A LOT, and just get everything (house, mind, soul, etc…) ready to start the new year refreshed! How about you?
I’ll probably post another something during the break, but you can catch all my other shenanigans on Instagram, Facebook, and Snapchat (happymundane) – I thank you all for stopping by this ol’ blog and wish you all a safe, warm and fantastic holiday!
