Peacock Tablescape with Aqua & Gold

Not sure why Jacqueline from Purple Chocolat Home and I have been on the same wave length lately.  Before she posted her chocolate spoons, I had already purchased the spoon molds and was planning on making a post out of them.  She posted her, so I decided to not post mine.

She recently posted an aqua and gold tablescape and I had already planned mine.
Well, mine has peacocks, so I thought I would post mine....

I kept my white tablelecloth and faux fur runner and just added my aqua elements.  I added these beautiful aqua feather trees from Zgallerie.  They were on clearance, so I snapped them up.

I had the ornaments when I posted the turquoise and red tablescape.  Adding them with the white snowflakes makes for a pretty scene.

I added my little peacocks to each place setting. The large peacock is perched in it's own bowl, among gold and aqua balls. I found this pretty peacock at Beverly Fabrics on sale.

I had the existing aqua candle holders, so I just added gold candles.

Our gold goblets  from Zgallerie tie in with the  aqua and gold theme. Gold flatware from Horchow is also used. Notice the blue hour outside?

I found the peacock plates at Home Goods.

18 Elegant Ideas for Golden Christmas Decor

Happy Wednesday everyone!  Christmas is coming on strong, so let's get our decorating done, so we can eat, drink and be merry! It seems like this year, I am running behind.  Most likely because we didn't have as much time   Thanksgiving was later this year.  I usually start right after.  My hubby gives me a hard time if I start decorating earlier.  I tell him, we get to enjoy it longer.....ha ha.

I was recently contacted by Hometalk  to curate a board for Golden Christmas Decor.  Since this is my baby this year, I thought I would share what I found. I had fun poking around and looking at lots of Christmas decor.  I have some new ideas for next year.

Hometalk is a wonderful place to learn about  and share Home improvement.  It is the largest online community for homeowners, renters, and home improvement professionals.
 It's easy to get inspired by looking at different categories.
You can get first hand experience and advice from DIY bloggers, professionals and more.

Feel free to join me and be inspired yourself. Check out my curated board of 18 Elegant Ideas for Christmas Decor.

Happy Browsing.  Merry Christmas from my family to yours.

Stay tuned for my Aqua and gold Peacock table.

Frosty The Snowman Tablescape

I started with the candy cane placemats, followed by red chargers and  white plates by  American Atelier.  The snowmen salad plates are by Certified International.  I found them at Overstock. Red goblets complete the table setting.

I am using  my red  flatware from Horchow, along with these cute little red Santa's britches and jackets. Christmas plaid napkins are a fun addition.
The little snowmen are sitting on Christmas napkin rings.  I found them at Big lots.

Here's Frosty... I found him at Big Lots.

This is our Breakfast room, formerly our dining room.

I also wanted to share a new Blogger, named Valerie from: Candle Light Supper2  She set a very cute Snowman table.

It's difficult take picture of this room, because of the mirror.  I like the reflection it gives, but I don't want myself in the picture, taking the picture....LOL

A very cute snowman tree hat topper a friend of ours gave me last year.  They sell them online at
Party Dreams    or My Top Hats

They have any possible theme and even Mickey Mouse.

If you missed my Winter Wonderland Tablescape, you can click the picture and it will take you to the post.

Merry Christmas to all.  Stay tuned for 18 elegant ways to decorate with gold, my Aqua Peacock tablescape and a royal crown tablescape.

*I also want to add: Blogger is sometimes showing the word verification on blogs. I have not added it, however there is a glitch right now with many bloggers.  Just ignore the word verification.  There is NO need to type it in. Hopefully in time, Blogger will fix this problem.
On another note, a few bloggers have told me, they can't find the comment box. I have checked this and found out on Internet Explore, there seems to be an issue.  If I change the format to full page, then the problem is solved.  Please let me know if this is an issue for you.

I am joining the following linky parties:
Table It   @Rustic & Refined
You're Gonna Love It @ Kathe With An E
Make It Pretty Monday @ The Dedicated House
Amaze me Monday @ Dwellings-The Heart Of Your Home
Inspiration Monday @ I Should Be Mopping The Floor
Inspire Me Tuesday @ A Stroll Thru Life
