She Magazine: Spark Tablescape

This year we had the pleasure of creating a holiday tablescape for SHE, a local Sioux Falls women’s magazine. When trying to decide what theme to go with we thought it best to steer away from the traditional reds and greens and try something a little out of the box. One of our outspoken sparklers blurted out, “why not make it a frosty Christmas – we live in South Dakota!” We decided on blues, whites, and crystals/sparkles for our dinner tablescape. Putting our heads together and gathering our resources we collected anything in blue hues that we had around our houses, Christmas related or not.

Alana, Spark's resident wedding consultant and avid dinner party hostess, had some tips about decorating to share. “When decorating for something, it’s important to use what you have. None of your guests will know that everything wasn’t purchased for that certain dinner party. Also, don't be afraid to mix and match styles and textures to add visual interest to your table."

To incorporate a little Spark flare we used our silver striped party papers: placecards, gift tags, and table signs. The final product was an inviting display good for a frosty Christmas party or a dinner party to ring in the new year.
