One of my worst qualities in life is not being able to keep surprises. I swear the second I get excited about sharing something it’s over, I should just apologize to all loved ones in advance for never actually having anything to open on Christmas or birthdays (sorry about tomorrow Jared!). Fortunately what I lack in keeping surprises I can make up for with a whole bunch of pom pom trim loveliness, like this tabletop I styled with Kim a few months ago.
Per my token colors, I stuck with white, gold, and pops of color. I know what you’re thinking, I should get a gold chain necklace with that phrase on it by now, but I can’t help it. In case you loved the DIY pom pom throw that matched this setting, you can see this version of the pom pom placemats tutorial over on Rue Magazine!
For the table numbers, we scoured every inch of the studio until I remembered I had three dimensional gold stickers and stuck them on transparency paper held up by my DIY animal memo holders.
The placemats are actually done up on both sides with opposing color combinations which looks really cute by placing them vertically off the table instead of horizontal.
Maria of Maxit Flower Design provided the lovely succulent centerpieces and I now have a new obsession with what I’ve deemed ‘pea plant succulents’. No idea what they’re actually called, but clearly I try to stay highly educated with my plant naming, ha!
