Seasons greetings all, together with my two other judges Courtney and Rhoda, we’ve finally settled on the winners for the HomeGoods Tablescape Contest. I cannot tell you how difficult this really was to judge, there were over 175 submissions via link and email, and so many were just gorgeous. How to choose? Well, we narrowed it down to the top 16 then voted again based on style, affordability, and creativity. It was extremely difficult, but finally here are the four winners and some other very honorable mentions. These holiday tablescapes are sure to inspire you all.
Let’s start with the three runners up, who will all receive a $50 Gift Card:
Runner Up #1: Pear Green and Sparkly
Pear ornaments and mercury glass pair beautifully on this simple outdoor tablescape set by Jordan at The Happy Homebodies for her ladies church group for Christmas. We loved the warm browns next to the cool shimmering mercury glass. The simple yet stunning branch centerpiece combines spray painted glittery branches with more natural manzanitas.
Runner Up #2: Z Gallerie Inspired Peacock tablescape
Several DIY projects combined to create this magical New Year’s Eve table over at Commonplace Beauty. $4 accent plates were the inspiration, and we’re head over heels in love with the inexpensive glam chargers created with a “pound of bling”. Don’t miss the gold garland dollar store vases, they’re so pretty! Bravo Heather!
Runner Up #3: Violet Winter Wonderland
Jess over at Events That Sparkle pulled together this stylish and budget savvy winter wonderland tablescape in unconventional violet that wowed us all, and all her DIY touches make this table the place to be for her family that celebrates both Christmas and Hanukkah. Just fabulous Jess!
The Grand Prize Winner of a $100 Gift Card to HomeGoods…
Natural Christmas: Sweet Something Designs! Congratulations!!!
We loved the cozy outdoor setting, and the use of a plaid ‘Camp Blanket’ as the inspiration for the color palette. The use of everyday white plates, contrasting black napkins, red flatware coupled with textural burlap, twigs and berries make this Christmas tablescape universally appealing to all. The glass hurricanes tiered on cedar platforms are the perfect centerpiece for this inexpensive welcoming outdoor scene. Simple, stylish, creative, and affordable! Hop on over to see the full outdoor tablescape ~ congratulations Michelle!
And congratulations to the top four winners, please contact me ASAP so I can get your address to send your gift cards!
