Coming to you today with THE most festive and creative table setting ever. Like, ever! A little while ago I shared a little clue over on Instagram that Maddy from The Essentials Club and I were working on another exciting project together. We have been talking about creating some festive DIYs together for a while and then we had the idea to totally DIY a festive tablescape for Christmas together. We wanted to see how much we could DIY and film in two days - tablecloth, napkins, placemats, coasters, centrepiece, decorations, ornaments - the works. Then plan originally involved Maddy and I coming together to DIY and style the table setting, but when life got in the way our idea actually got better. We decided to do a mystery DIY Christmas Table Setting whereby Maddy would make the key pieces for a festive table setting and not tell me anything about them. She sent them up to me by post last week and I got the thrill of opening the package with spoiler notes and instructions by my side. From there, I got creative and brought the table setting together by styling the pieces together with what I had at home, including a few extra DIYs sprinkled in. I have to say, this was FUN. Like, really fun! To see how this came together and to learn how you can DIY Your Christmas Table Setting This Year, click the link below:
I hope we have inspired you to get your sewing machines out and get making! Maddy shares the tutorials for her tablecloth, placemats, napkins and coasters in her video here so definitely make sure you watch it. It's been so fun working on this with her. We have been friends for years, working together across many different projects and clients in our other businesses, but nothing brings us greater joy than being able to work together through The Essentials Club and Smor Kitchen. I love being able to create DIY magic together and to be able to share these projects with you over on her YouTube channel and here is truly the best!
