I’m so excited to announce that I’m a finalist in the Design Sponge Before & After Holiday Contest!! Yay!! Here’s where you can vote. I really love the other designs too – check out the homemade gems, the starry backdrop and the embroidered tree – all genius!

For my design I decorated our kitchen table for a Christmas meal with some of my favourite Christmassy items:

Table - After


1. Plates and bowls – West Elm

2. Cutlery – Crate and Barrel

3. All glassware – Homesense

4. Footed bowl – Daiso

5. Ornaments – vintage

6. Placemats – Wrapping paper from Homesense

7. Trees – Homesense

8. Garland – Canadian Tire and IKEA

I’ve been all over the metallics recently, so this really came together nicely. Plus – you can’t deny me my green obsession!!

What do you think? How do you decorate your holiday table?
