3 ways to add a sprinkle of Christmas cheer & a simple holiday table



You might have noticed that I am somewhat obsessed with this barn & 
with setting tables for all occasions all year long. 



And they are a good pairing I think.
A wee table on the path the the barn with all those twinkles ...


and a chunky Christmas tree adding an extra sprinkle of magic.
I am even more obsessed than I was before.
And today for our Farmhouse holiday series- hosted by my friend Kristen 
it is all about  3 ways to add a sprinkle of Christmas cheer to your holiday table.


Starting with... candles.
Because, I am obsessed with those too.


These candles are a glittery gold that love to drip so perfectly.
I placed them into vintage brass candlesticks and let them do their thing.
And you can also another idea in this photo...

Cranberries.

For a simple centerpiece idea- I always love to incorporate fruit- Whether it is persimmons,
apples, peaches and figs or something like cranberries and more. 


I don't usually add a ton of red to my holiday decor- but the cranberries seemed to be perfect
for this particular table.
I simply scattered them in the center along with a couple sprigs of eucalyptus.

We already talked about twinkle lights and twinkling trees- 
and this is another way to add that cheer - even outdoors.


I placed this chubby Balsam Hill Sanibel Spruce into a basket 
and set it up on the wee porch on the barn.
It adds such a sweet touch to the outside- and the lights in the background 
are a definite ambiance boost.
Something fun this season-

On the table today- it is all about simple elegance & vintage elements-
vintage dishes, vintage gold and wood flatware and vintage crystal stemware- 
mingling with 
the silver velvet linen napkins available in my shop.


These and the cream velvet are my favorites- and you will see them on repeat quite a bit this season.

Up next- you won't want to miss what my friends are sharing today for their holiday dining rooms or tables-
