Today's theme is tablescapes, and I'm sharing a simple, rustic table I put together using branches I clipped from our yard, items from the grocery store, and some pieces I had on hand. Simple is my middle name these days as I've been purging and only using things that I love in our house.

For this tablescape, I used some vintage silverware I picked up a few weeks ago. It's from 1946 and I've really fallen in love with it. I got most of it from an estate sale and picked up a few more pieces to finish the set here.

A basic burlap table runner anchors all of it and adds some texture to the table.
A simple rolled up linen napkin finishes off the plates. I wrapped some twine around it and then tucked in a sprig of boxwood that I clipped from the back yard. I tied on a small glass ornament to give it a little pizazz.
I've had the glasses for several years and the brown works well with the earthy theme and the brown holiday plates.
Keeping it simple on the centerpiece are some pomegranates and holly tucked into a wooden dough bowl.
Some pine cones and nandina branches add a bit more color and texture to the table. And the mini ornaments bring a touch of bling to the setting.
Since we don't have a dining room, this is on our breakfast room table that we eat at every day. It usually doesn't have much on it besides a few crumbs and I'm really liking the simple decor. I'll keep it like this through the holidays.
