Happy Saturday, friends!! Today, I’m so excited to be joining some blogging friends for a Christmas in July blog hop, hosted by the very sweet Terrie of Decorate and More With Tip.

For my blog post today, I decided to put together a Christmas-y tablescape.

Vagabond House recently sent me these darling Nutcracker Taper Candle Holders and Ornament Salt and Pepper Shakers which instantly inspired this tablescape!

Mixed metals, glittered and gilded nuts, woods and whites, with a little twinkle and candle light are giving me all the holiday feels!!

Although I am a summer girl, through and through, I can’t lie, receiving these darling nutcracker taper holders and ornament salt and pepper shakers, has made me start to get excited for Christmas!!! I love all of the beautiful, cozy vibes of the holiday season!

Here are links to the different DIYs and products that I used in this tablescape:

•Nutcracker taper holders

•Ornament Salt ans Pepper Shakers

•Glittered and gilded nuts

•White Christmas village houses with glass glittered roofs

•Table riser
