Set Your Holiday Table: Candy Cane Inspired
Wednesday, December 12, 2012 at 1:24 PM

Hello Everyone,

It's getting closer and closer to the main event, even as we speak!  A few days ago, I shared a table setting that had an elegant flair ... but today, I'm sharing a table setting that will speak to your wild, daring, and fearless side!

It's fun, it's playful, and I'm pretty sure it's one of my favorites for this holiday season!

Just like the silver and cream setting, many of the items you see in this setting were found at Ikea and Michaels. 

For the "table runner," I used the Margareta rug from Ikea.  The chargers and the white candles are the Skurar candle dish, and the Skurar candle holder -- also from Ikea.

I found the little cardboard boxes at Michaels, along with the poinsettia stickers that I placed on the top.  If I would have really been entertaining guests with this set up (this was staged for a article I was writing), I would have filled the boxes with little gifts that each guest could take with them when the left.  They would make the perfect party favors, and they were less than $1 each.

The red dishes were also from Ikea, though I couldn't find them on the website.  I thought they were perfect for a holiday table, and that it would be a bit different to fill them with water and place a floating candle inside.

The little artsy sculptures can be found at Ikea, and then I added the Santa hats to turn them into holiday decorations.  To prop them up, I flipped over some bowls and just placed them on top.

All-in-all, this setting was pretty simple -- yet, it instantly becomes a focal point because of the crisp red and white combination. 

What do you think?  Would you prefer the candy cane inspired setting, or the silver and cream?  Cast your vote in the comments below.
