I’m so exited to be sharing a special post for the holidays with you all! It’s coming up on one year since David and I bought and moved into our new home together, and between planning a wedding, blogging and working at our day jobs it has taken us just as long to get our house in a place where it has started to feel like home. For our wedding, my parents bought us this gorgeous industrial oak and steel dining table from west elm. Now that I finally have a real table in our house I’m excited to bring a DIY thrifted holiday-inspired tablescape in partnership with Value Village, a global thrift retailer offering great quality, gently used clothing, accessories and household goods. To decorate my first-ever holiday table I went shopping at Value Village to see what goodies I could find.
The store had a lot of great glassware to select from and that’s where I started to build out my table decor. I decided to go with a vintage look by using the wine glasses with gold rims and lucked out finding white china bowls with gold rimming as well which I placed on top of plain white china plates I already had in my kitchen. I also found these pedestal glass platter that I used to hold the votives with floating candles (BTW I found a whole pack of never used floating candles at Value Village too!). The last piece of my thrifted items were red fabric napkins to give a pop of holiday color to the table. At the end of the day I spent under $30 for all the thrifted pieces!
Outside of the thrifted items I wanted to add in some greenery around the candles to create a natural looking DIY centerpiece. My local Safeway store was selling an assortment bunch of greenery that I thought would be perfect and I added in a few fake gold stems to bring out the gold themes in the rest of the table. I’m really happy for how this turned out especially because I’m definitely not very good at decorating myself. Keep scrolling to see more!
Thank you to Value Village for helping me find great thrifted items to reuse for my holiday table decor!
*I was provided a gift certificate to Value Village to purchase the thrifted items in exchange for a blog post, all ideas and opinions are my own.
