Holiday Book & Succulent Table

7 Materials
30 Minutes

Here's a great table scpe idea! All you need to do is use old books and succulents to add a rustic elegance to your holiday table! Here's how-

I was inspired by the book stacks my friend Heather @thevintageshelf makes for our holiday table this year. I decided to rip apart an old book and make napkin rings and succulent centerpieces!

For the napkin ring, just rip out a page and fold into thirds.

Next, loop the ring around your napkin and secure with clear tape. That's it!

I added some twine, a glass acorn ornament, and a sprig of fresh cut cedar from our forest trees.

For the succulent centerpiece, just pot succulents in an old tin can. I save these throughout the year and keep them outside so they get weathered and rusty. I taped a book page around the tin, tied it with twine, and added moss, cedar, and manzanita berries for holiday flair.

I just love how they look with Heather's book stacks! The succulents went home with the guests after dinner.

Hope you like this idea!
