Embroidered Holiday Gift Tags

Silver + Gold Tablescape

Thursday, November 1st, 2012

I was asked by Wayfair to partake in their Holiday Tablescape Challenge and I was happy to be one of the many bloggers setting pretty tables this year as part of their campaign.   I’ve always loved mixing metallic finishes especially during the holidays, so I did on this table too, inspired by a fresh geometric fabric I found which combines gold and silver together.
