Tabletop Decorating Via #KmartHoliday #Cbias

Shopping is one thing. I can do that. Decorating on the other hand…not a strong suit. I went shopping at Kmart and found some great decorations for my table, now I just have to hope it all comes together.

Dining room

I emptied out all of the things I bought: table cloth, napkins, napkin rings, candles, goblets, candle hurricanes, and a table runner. Will any of it match and even if it does, will I put it together so it looks right? LOL
Right now, most everything in the holiday shop is on sale. Much of what I bought was 60% off…already!! I know, crazy. Stretched the dollar though.

Ok, so I realized I made a bit of a counting mistake. I only got 4 napkins and 4 napkin ring holders. I know those go together, but I got 6 placemats to go along with our 6 chairs. Looks like I might have to go back!

Table decorations

My table has one of the leaves in it, but after I put the table cloth on, I realized it was a bit long which means when I do need to put my extra extra leaf in it’ll still fit perfectly! SCORE!

Out came the placemats, napkins and napkin holders. Lo’ and behold, they worked! Success!! I mean, you really can’t go wrong with red, green and cream. I should’ve put the table runner on before the other linens, but I got it on. Then I put out my 3 poinsettia doilies. They are such a cute accent.

Next I grabbed my 2 boxes of 3 sets of Goblets. I also had bought a 9 pack of cinnamon scented candles to go inside the Goblets. Ahhh I just realized one set of the Goblets is poinsettias! Perfect with the doilies! Dontcha love it when a plan comes together?

I have to admit, I was so excited when I got this table put together. All of a sudden I felt like a grown up. I mean, this layout really looked good in my humble opinion!

Goblet layout
After I had my grown up moment, I wanted to try out my semi-woodsy idea, too. I had also bought 3 Hurricane candles and a bag of cinnamon scented pinecones. Now, for the record, these pinecones should come packaged in something other than netting. This is the messiest stuff in the world!

Hurricane Holders
I poured the pinecones into the hurricanes, put the candle holder on and the candles inside. Next I grabbed two pillar candles that I also bought. They have a cute sisal rope around it with mini pinecones as an accent. Look at this coming together!! Woo Hoo It’s nice to know I can change the feel of my dining room.

So, there I am, all grown up in my Kmart decorated dining room. It’s a first for me and I have to be honest, I could go hoity toity in a heart beat. Who knew?

Ok, what set do you like most? Do you like the goblets or hurricanes better? I kind of like them both…a lot!

Make sure you come take a look at my entire shopping experience at Google+. It's a fun way to see how it all went from beginning to end!
