Designer style table on a budget + a free xmas serviette printable

It’s all about the table…

It’s where we eat.

It’s where we talk,

and laugh.

Where we meet,

with family and friends.


It’s also about the budget and design.


We’ve never had a table like this before…

{Designer style on a budget.}


Until now.


It’s reclaimed Elm,

full of lines and grains.

Gorgeous to touch.


impressive to look at.

After much Pinterest searching

I found these guys…


Introducing the Dalton from Interior Secrets

our new table heirloom.


It’s a whopping 3m long,

and I can safely say it will seat 12 easily.

I’ve teamed it with the Caprice Chair and Eames Replica Side Chair

You can check out founder Bill Huynh’s story here.

{I love a good start up story}




I made a green foliage flower arrangement last night,

as a test run for Christmas,

over wine with friends.



designed some serviette tags.

You can download these Christmas Serviette tags for free here!

{NB: I used 2 x white disposable serviettes to make these, fold, then staple the tags as pictured}




I’m thinking something like this for Christmas day.

With the glasses full.


And music.

And traditions.

{like these ones}



NO table cloth,

now we’ve oiled our new table,

with this furniture oil,

so we can see the wood in it’s glory.




The serviettes are all made…





And we are ready to enjoy…

The food to come.

And the wine to drink,

{did I mention the glasses will be full?}



of course…
the Pork Crackle Festival on Christmas Eve.

This year Ben’s volunteered to cook the pork,

{which Adrian won at the local raffles} on the webber
{he’s got big shoes to fill},


I reckon if he can build a deck to perfection, he can cook Pork Crackle too!

{I’ll keep you posted Dad and Jane}



We’ll even be playing hand ball here,

(go figure, some people think it’s a perfect middle line)



This is where we will be this Christmas.

Eating with new friends

and old.

Missing our family and friends,

(but it only feels like yesterday that some were here

playing with this guy)



Tomfo Dalton Reclaimed table

In our lives,

It really is all about the table,

and the people you gather there.

The stories you make,

over the grains in the wood.

And the dreams you discuss…

then make a reality.



I wish you all a merry Christmas

and many table gatherings

with family and friends.


And traditions,

and remembrance of the ones that are missing at your table.


Thank you so much for following our journey this year.

I’m taking a break over the holidays to get my studio in order to start creating new works for my Yamba Scandi Collection.

We’ll be back with a full house tour in February.


Until then.

  4. I love homemade county style decorations especially Christmas ones! Serviette printable idea would be great for many occasions: Happy 21st, Happy Golden Anniversary, 10 Today etc. The possibilities are endless. Thanks for this idea

      Too true, and the fact that you can use regular store bought napkins to decorate on a budget is a win I think. Happy festive season to you and yours. x

  7. Love this…we will be on the hunt for a new dining table in the new year and I love the look of this. I really want a big table that can fit our family and friends around it – 12 is a great number.

    • Sarah says:

      I’m so pleased with this table, we get comments all the time, because of the size and feel, i love it because it will fit 12 and even more that you have plenty of space in the middle for all your serving plates and food. I totally recommend the guys at Interior Secrets they were fab to deal with, you won’t be disappointed. Have yourself a fab Christmas.
