For my husband’s birthday last night I wanted a masculine table setting for his party. The fastest and cheapest way to accomplish this is to look at nature in your own backyard for a centre piece. Even though it’s between Thanksgiving and Christmas there are still lots of natural elements to gather.

The perfect time of year for berries.

Choosing darker masculine colours was my starting point. The black vase and iron candle stick holders set the mood.

The paper napkins from Loblaws were my colour inspiration. I always prefer cloth napkins but I liked the colours and patterns on these paper ones. The sturdy textured faux leather charger plates also make the table setting feel rustic and adds texture. Notice how I still used our silverware and gold rimmed china dishes. USE your favourite dishes as often as you can. Don’t just save them for company. YOU deserve the best too 🙂  Make every day a celebration.

I literally went to the garden and gathered berries, greenery, twigs and pinecones from the yard for this look.

I loved how it looked at the end. No roses or frilly things for my guy 🙂

Hug your home 🙂
