Vintage Winter Forest Part Two

.
Wanted to share some more images from the Vintage Winter Forest holiday party I recently did. You saw the dessert area here. Now for the tablesettings.

As mentioned, the scene was set with the gorgeous salad plates from Head of the Table. I can't recommend Kim's service enough for those of you lucky enough to live in St. Louis! We are so lucky to have this great resource for rental items that are beyond the average commonly found.

I had fun making this wreath "chandelier" to hang from the center of the room. By taking a grapevine wreath and adorning it with battery operated lights, some faux garland and other holiday items, you can create a great focal piece that makes a statement and stays easy on the budget! The possibilities to personalize this are endless, too!

One of my other favorite elements was the bar signage created by simply wrapping foamcore boards in gift wrap, cutting out letters and making them sparkle with some glue and glitter. A great way to make an impact on a blank wall when affixed with removable 3M wall mount stickers. (Ignore the upside down "B", please...act like it was intentional and funky!). This is a great trick to use that you can customize with any party by changing out the gift wrap and the wording!

Thanks again to Kelly for the feature and for all the sweet words here and on Facebook about this party!

Happy holidays!
Amy

Amy, I just love these posts! It looks like a woodland moss-laiden forest became magically Christmasized and glitter coated! It's so beautiful and all the little details really make it whimsical and lush. The palette is also very wonderful; the green screams HOLIDAY! but it feels new and bright! Very lovely!

What a clever signage idea! Can be customized in so many ways to suit the occasion, theme, or even the wording of the sign. Thanks!
