Are you ready for Christmas yet?
Done decking the halls, wrapped up all your shopping
and baked everything needing to be baked?
I am running around like a maniac for a bit longer
and bringing out the gorgeous AND easy decorations.
That require just a few elements to put together
but to knock your guests socks off at the same time.
Like a simple but beautiful Christmas table
with fresh greens marching down the center
and a sprinkling of Christmas cheer.
Start with a fresh or faux garland.
I used a fresh fraser fir garland down the center of the table
and added to it to make it a bit more fancy.
Eucalyptus pods and pepper berries-and just a few clippings of greens from the yard
brought in a subtle blue, faded green and pop of red
and was all it needed.
Want even more simple?
Just use the garland as is. Voila.
Up next- to add a sprinkling of Christmas
I dotted the garland with ornaments.
I used those pretty sugar sprinkled clear ornaments
but you can use whatever extras you have on hand.
And for more color?
Use pomegranates or red ornaments to bring a burst of Christmas cheer.
Then it is all about the place settings.
Think simple elegance with
A favorite dish or something sentimental like Grandmothers china.
That is it.
So simple and easy-and elegant at the same time.
And it doesn't require another trip to the store
which is a huge bonus in my book.
Keep your table setting simple and charming and easy to do
and take some of that 'it has to be perfect!' stress
right off the table.
See you tomorrow for a Christmas Eve post!
