Susan at Between Naps on The Porch did a Christmas Tablescape Inspired by Nature Themed Dishware back in November. I was enamored by the sweet nature themed salad plates. After many trips to Walmart to find these little charmers I finally found 6 matching plates that will be given away as a Christmas gift after I use them for this post of course. I had found one of the bunny plates and one of the cardinal plates before I finally found six of the winter homestead plates. When Cuisine Kathleen issued the challenge for a copycat tablescape, Susan's table was the first tablescape that came to mind. Mind you, there many of the lovely elements that I simply did not have. But I tried to improvise as I went along.
Susan's beautiful table was perfect for inspiration for a copycat table.
First I removed the glass from my round black table and put a white lace tablecloth underneath to try and keep a closer imitation of Susan's lovely wicker table and replaced the glass top. Unfortunately I could not make the table larger, but I made do.
Then I took the only small green tree that I have and put it on a pedestal cake stand. I added an old wreath underneath the tree to make it appear a little larger.
I placed a plaid tablecloth around the base similar to the one susan used. I placed a couple of birds nests and some tiny plaid decorations to the tree.
I placed my lacy charger plates around the table.
I added a cute little bunny.
Then I added a few woodland creatures.
I placed my Walmart nature themed dishes on the chargers.
I do not have any twig flatware so I used plain black flatware instead. I placed a tartan ornament on each plate.
I also improvised for the napkins by using a green napkin and my Lenox napkin rings with a twig slid under the ring.
