This casual holiday tablescape was directly inspired by a seasonal staple here at the Farmhouse: Shiner Cheer. Yes, this festive table was inspired by beer. Are you really that surprised?
Ever since the Texan introduced me to this seasonal nectar of the Gods, I’ve been hooked. It is profoundly delicious (dang those Texans know how to make some good beer) and the pretty packaging doesn’t hurt, either. I am a sucker for pretty packaging. We literally wait on pins and needles for it to come out every year, and it is darned hard to find in Los Angeles. But we manage. This year we drove 60 miles for it. Priorities.
I am in love with this color scheme: cream, minty-teal-green, and orangey-red (dare I say….Farmhouse Red?!). These are my colors, and they repeat themselves ad nauseam throughout our house. So it was a no-brainer that my holiday table would resort to this color scheme.
We like it casual here. I use basic white dinnerware for everything, because it goes with everything. This table cloth is a fitted sheet (which hugs the oval table in a very pretty way!), with a strip of raw-edged canvas drop cloth set over it as a runner. The centerpiece is an informal gathering of scavenged, broken branch pieces, craft-store red berries, and strands of mini-lights placed around a set of three chippy-painted candlesticks.
The napkins are wrapped in a simple bind of red grosgrain ribbon, with a Shiner Cheer bottle cap accent.
Wishing everyone a case or two of Holiday Cheer!
