From dinner to desserts, holiday celebrations are centered around creating sweet memories with families and friends. The holidays are a perfect time to use natural decor to decorate your home. There is just something about fresh greenery. It brings warmth and earthy fragrances indoors. Celebrating all the joys this time of year brings, we created this birds of a feather holiday dinner table in natural white and earthy tones.
For our dinner table, we brought the outdoors in and used fresh greenery including tree branches, sticks, leaves and pine cones too. To create the centerpiece, tree branches were used as the base to surround the weathered wood “Joy” sign. A birch rectangular flower vase was filled with sticks and leaves to add another layer to the decor. Burlap snowflakes, bells and brown feathered birds were hung from a miniature tree. Reindeer, birds, and pine cones were arranged around the sign to complete the centerpiece.
Incorporating other natural elements such as the grass place mats and wood chargers also add to the rustic design. We love the burlap cutlery pouches that have a bronze frame on top to personalized each place setting. Both green and brown napkins with burlap flower rings were used to add visual interest. If you do not have enough napkins of one color for all your guests, do not be afraid to mix them up. In this case the two colors blended and matched our theme.
To emphasize our birds of a feather theme, feather prints in gold frames were mounted on a wood gate on the wall. Pillows with a feather print were added to the wood chairs. Brown feathered bird ornaments and a white bird house used as decorative elements worked well to provide a cohesive design.
