Look-A-Likes For Less: Silver Woodgrain Chargers

For my Christmas table setting I aim for whimsical and rustic with plenty of sparkle. I pair silver snowflake salad plates from Target (a little miffed that the pattern changed this year since I can't decided if I like the new or old pattern best) with my everyday white dinnerware from JCP, then top that off with white napkins in mercury glass snowflake napkin rings from Pottery Barn.

Add in a rustic burlap table runner and a mix of mercury glass votive holders that I picked up at a Pottery Barn Outlet this fall. My birthday is the end of the world a little before Christmas and I'm pretty sure I'll be adding a mercury glass cake stand and maybe silver pine cone salt and pepper shakers to my Christmas table this year.


Z Gallerie carries beautiful silver wood grain chargers that I've wanted to add to my Christmas table setting for a couple years now, but as usual I didn't want to pay that much for something I'd only use a few times a year at most. Then the other week while I was strolling through Target looking for goodies to put in our Advent calendar I came across similar and much cheaper chargers at Target. $1.99 vs. $4.99 each, I think we have a winner. I'll have to see how well it all comes together and take some photos to share here later.

Z Gallerie Wood Grain Chargers (set of 4) on sale for $19.95 originally $23.80.

Threshold Round Silver Wood Grain Charger $1.99 at Target.

Look-A-Likes For Less: Colorful Chalkboard Spice Jars

World Market seems to have a lot of kitchen products similar to those at Anthropologie, but at a much lower price (see here, here, here, and here). Today's look-a-likes for less are colorful spice jars with chalkboard labels. Both the versions look very similar with bright lids (the Anthropologie jar has more color options), nearly identical outlined chalkboard labels, and are similar in size. First the Anthropologie Chalkboard Spice Jar at $10-12 each and available in Silver, Lime, Sky, Coral, and Yellow:

Now the World Market Ceramic Spice Jar at $4.99 each and available in Mint, Red, and Aqua:
