Black and White This years Black and White Rustic theme for the table was inspired by the new buffalo check accent wall in the dining room. I tried not to go over board with the buffalo check, but it is a big element of this pretty table.
I started out with the table runner. It’s actually just a piece of fabric, with rustic frayed edges. Then I decided to use my wood round chargers. Mine were made for me from an old log several years ago by my sweet brother-in-law. You could pick up something similar at the craft store.PL
I decided on the place settings quite early on, but wasn’t sure what to do for a centrepiece. Flowers, or an evergreen garland with candles would have both been really pretty too.
Birch Yule Log
I decided to try making a yule log, and it became the centrepiece of the table.
I used a cutting board to serve the yule log on, and because I wanted it to be the star of the show I elevated it and added some greenery.
The little meringue mushrooms got a sprinkling of cocoa, and the whole cake got some powdered sugar “snow”.
The mushrooms on the cake inspired the rest of the table centrepiece. I used some mushrooms that I had used for a spring table -see them here. They’re made from air dry clay, and they got a little snow added to them for Christmas.
