‘Tis the season to start gussying up the table! In Canada, Thanksgiving comes near the beginning of October, so we start thinking about turkeys and stuffing and giant gatherings of people early in Autumn. I love a reason to decorate a table and I’m excited to share this lovely tablescape with you today.
Supplies needed for a mercury glass & succulent tablescape:
- David Tutera Mercury Glass Votives.
- David Tutera Laser Cut Paper Napkin Rings.
- Faux Succulents.
- Battery Operated Candles.
- Table Linens, Dishes, and Glasses.
I love how these napkin rings look against the neutral background. They are made from kraft paper so they can be used right out of the package (as I did here), or they could be painted to match your table.The little faux succulents were the perfect size to be placed in the mercury glass votive holders. You could also use votive candles for a candle-lit look.
I opted to use the battery operated candle lamps for the table’s lighting. I love how these add such a neat look to the table but they’re also safe for children or wild arm gesturing over the table. Plus, they’re easy to turn on and off (just twist the bulb)!
I mixed the candle lamps with a large pair of candle sticks that I bought at a garage sale. I find that people can talk around or through candles but it’s much harder get a conversation going over a large flower arrangement.
