Festive Red & Peacocks

I have been wanting to create this tablescape for quite some time.  A turquoise and a rich red.
Peacocks are the theme, since they are on the salad plates.
The plate itself is my inspiration.  It has a lovely red with the birds.


I found these plates at Home Goods.
The turquoise chargers are from Target.
I am using my Parchment Red plates from Mikasa.




I found these lovely Peacock place card holders at the World Market. I printed the cards myself.

                   
                  The napkins I bought at Zgallerie




The red Xmas cones I found at Target for a great price at the after the Christmas sale.





I thought I would decorate the chandelier in turquoise and red beads.

The huge swag was a good find at Pottery World.  Of course their after Christmas sale.


The water glass is also from Zgallerie...I found the goblets at Home Goods. Puccini Peacock glasses.




This theme is only for a special dinner party.  I will re-decorate in the traditional colors after the party.


The centerpiece is a green garland.  I added red bulbs, turquoise bulbs and a Peacock garland.
We bought a new camera and managed to take pictures last night, however my husband changed the settings, therefore the pictures were in the wrong format. 

Happy Holidays everyone!

  3. Z Gallerie!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have tried (unsuccessfully!) many time to chain myself inside that store! I get in there, and I don't want to leave! I LOVE it! It is the store that makes me the happiest. When I'm feeling blue or need a creative boost, I pop in there for inspiration. I don't think there is one thing in there that is ugly! I have invested quite a few dollars in that company's future, and I am sure I will continue to do so! That particular stemware has been on my radar for months and months. I love it in all the colors. I have been duly warned, though, that if I bring one more thing in this house that there will be heck to pay. So....I'm chillin' out (for now!). This is a beautiful, beautiful use of the color, and you totally rocked it!

  8. Wow, what a beautiful table setting! I adore peacocks, so this was right up my alley. I never would have thought to pair turquoise and red, but they work so well together.

  10. Spectacular table with a fabulous color combination. The turquoise chargers from Target, and the unique Asian plates from Home Goods work elegantly to create a platform for a festive, and unique celebration. The turquoise martini glasses are over-the-top fabulous. I have them in red and gold, purchased as a splurge from Z Gallerie. I saw some recently in Home Goods in other colors. Great job. Thanks for sharing/posting. Merry Christmas ~CJ

  14. I was fortunate to see this table scape in Linda's home earlier in the week. OMG, it is absolutely SPECTACULAR. I mentioned to her that I would never have put the colors together for Christmas, but they looked magnificent. So rich and classy. Linda's entire home is deck out for Christmas in ways I could never imagine; it looks like something right out of a magazine, yet one feels so warm and cozy!

  15. We love the same things Linda! I was just at Z Gallerie and I got peacock clips and peacock colored chargers. I happened to have red chargers in my other hand and I commented on how fabulous the two looked together! How gorgeous the table looked. I am sure it wowed everyone. (Turquoise and red are right up there after purple for me!)
