My Copycat Table Idea
|August 29, 2013||Posted by Helen under Uncategorized|
Remember all the excitement over the 2013 HGTV SmartHome in Jacksonville, Florida! Surely you do. Bob and I spent hours taking it all in and enjoyed it beyond words. The citizens of Jacksonville were very welcoming to us and were thrilled to show the home that was gathering loads of attention for their beautiful area. We were honored to visit during that special time. The photo below is one of my favorite views of the dining room table.
Right away my mind clicked into overdrive, because I was unable to find a supply list of the contents. And of course there I was thinking the gorgeous glass candleholders would be very difficult to find. Yes, even thinking they might have to be special ordered, etc. There was no concern over the urn as Bob and I had purchased two on one of our trips to Colonial Williamsburg about three years ago. My thoughts kept going as I really wanted to get a reasonable price on those beautiful glass candleholders.
This morning, I’ve found myself scrolling back and forth to view the HGTV dining table photo,that I took in May. I’ve been trying to get an idea of just how many candlesticks this copycat look would require to look great. Now, there’s Christmas coming and there’s been a leap from August to December here in Tennessee! Notice that mirrored tray those gorgeous HGTV holders are placed on. My plan is to take my favorite tablescape plan that is to use an oval mirror….ah yes, it’s an inexpensive one at that! It’s been used for many Thanksgivings and many Christmas dinner celebrations. Visualize my oval mirror on the table with those copycat candleholders on Christmas Eve! The mirror was actually one I stumbled upon and I’ve loved it for years. Not fancy….in fact there’s usally greenery that can be draped around the oval frame to make it prettier.
You might even have a perfume tray, that would work well on your dining table or sideboard.
There you have it…all except where those glass candlesticks can be located. Well, of course that is a secret, that I certainly love sharing…Hobby Lobby! It’s a place that’s difficult to stay away for long. If you’re crazy about that grand store, like most of us are, who love home decor, you are there how many times a week….two, three or more.
See how friendly our photos are to us. Snapping photos in the stores assure the companies that we love what they sell. And that is music to their ears. If that top photo had not been taken, perhaps it would have been a time when the details were fixed in my mind and other times maybe too much info ran together. The photos on this page were taken with my iPad and it’s easy to carry shopping.
