Home for the Holidays.
It is a time to share with family and friends. It is one of the few times we get to sit at the table with each other and laugh, talk and be thankful.
I have always enjoyed decorating for the holidays. Part of that decorating was coming up with different ideas for my holiday table. The kids get a big kick out of it and the adults seem to like it too. I try to decorate for both to enjoy.
This year after just one trip to Old Time Pottery and I managed to find almost everything I needed.
I went with a plaid motif. I dressed it up a little and still kept it a little rustic. I found a set of chargers to highlight my set of pottery dishes.
I used some plaid scarfs for table runners and added my red chargers and plates.
I found some stuffed plaid deer ornaments that I really though the young ones would love. Later they can take it home for their tree.
I folded wire ribbon to act like a pocket for the silverware. This way I can use any napkins I choose.
I love using fresh flowers and at Christmas using greens. An inexpensive way is to cut from the yard if you are able. I also used birch logs for my centerpiece.
I stacked three logs and started added carnations, spider mums and greenery. Eucalyptus mixed with pine and flowers made this pop on the table and it smells wonderful.
The last thing I did was add that sweet little reindeer.
Plaid is so popular this year. He look so good in it too!
Love the way the table looks. I think the family will love it too.
Filled large vases with pine cones and wrapped it in the same plaid ribbon that I used for the flatware. It gave height to the table.
It feels so festive. No table is complete till the family gathers around it.
I think we will enjoy this one this year.
Old Time Pottery had the vases, plates, chargers and flatware. I also got most of the decor too. I love shopping at a one stop shop.
What will you decorate with this year? If you use any of these ideas, be sure to take pictures and let us know in the comments!
