As promised on Sunday we not only decorated the headquarter’s living room in the style of Anthropologie. We also prepared a table decoration which you can copy for your Christmas table.
When thinking about tablescapes I always try to create different height levels.
Our eyecatchers this time are the paper stars which we were kindly allowed to share the tutorial with you by Linn from the blog HOME by linn (do check out her blog, it is full of great pictures, ideas and has such a calm and positive atmosphere!). They are not hard to make, just take a little time to assemble. You can see the whole tutorial below. The gift guide today is also inspired by the star’s geometrical forms!
What we “stole” from Anthropologie is the idea with cord bobbins as the centerpiece of our arrangement. We lightly sprayed it with fake snow. The napkin is wrapped with a dark green velvet ribbon, which you can buy at a department store or order online (US | UK), the napkins are self-made out of white linen with a dark brown trimming.
At the end we simply added an olive branch from our garden.
Have a decorated feast this year!!

Star Tutorial from Linn
(1) The star consists of eight square pieces, which you first should prepare. Linn made herself a little master square out of sturdy paper. The star which Linn makes below is consists of squares 10×10 cm. Our big star from the decoration is made out of seven 21×21 cm large squares.
(2) Fold them diagonally once.
(4) Now fold the shorter sites from the edges to the middle line. You should end up with a parallelogram.
(5) Hold the upper point and fold them to the right side. The right side should lay exactly on its beneath lying edge. Unfold and do the samef for the left side. You should have a crosswise fold.
(7) Now two angular triangles have formed, different in size. Fold the bigger triangle in the middle (so that a closed border is formed) and fold the smaller triangle around it. This little one follows the folds which we folded before.
(9) When you made all the singular cones you can start with assemble the star. One star – as said before – consists of 7-8 modular components. The smaller pieces of each piece is inserted in the bigger triangular shape. It is advisable to just loosely put together the star before you are finished with all pieces.
