Tablescapes, Sweet Sugarplum Fantasy
It’s time for the December tablescape challenge at Cuisine Kathleen. This time she challenged us to create a “copycat” tablescape from Pinterest or a magazine… I chose this Sugarplum Tree tablescape from Purple Chocolat Home
Jacqueline’s table creations are always over the top and fabulous, so recreating one would be a definite challenge, but I knew I had a lot of things in my stash to create a similar feeling
I started by decorating my favorite little silver tree with a pink boa and ornaments from my birthday party decorations, pink and blue polka dot balls and ice cream cones
I did plate stacks with cupcakes under a glass domes
Purple Chocolate Home left, the Painted Apron, right
I added a painted Sweet Shoppe sign, just for fun
and gathered many more things before I was done
Jacqueline also has the cutest Kringle cake stand with shoes, below center, that she used in her Candy Land Christmas Table last year
I put little girl’s Christmas dot leg warmers on my inexpensive metal stand to recreate the look, far left, far right, and below
I created the Christmas Cottages with this table in mind
and added lots of trees, packages, and whatever sweets I could find
Snowflakes fall from the chandy
and everywhere you look,
There’s lots of candy!
This Sweet Sugarplum Fantasy table will be perfect for my Goodie Swap Brunch this weekend
I will move the large pink tree to the sideboard so we can talk across the table
The gumdrop tree was made by our founding member, sweet Kathy
We have been swapping goodies in December for as long as anyone can remember
So I’m sure I’ll have a tale or two to share with you
After this year’s giving and getting
I think they will all just love this setting!
Thank you for the wonderful inspiration Jacqueline and Purple Chocolat Home!
Be sure to pop over to Cuisine Kathleen’s tonight to see all the copycat creations!
