This year we are planning on a few sit down dinners. One with a group of friends, a luncheon for my girl friends, as well as a family dinner . This simple and festive setting will be used for all three dinner parties.
Simple and Festive Holiday Table Decor
One of my favorite things about the holidays are the many opportunities we have to gather with family and friends to celebrate the season. This simple and festive Christmas table decor is quick and easy to put together and inexpensive. This tablescape was completely created with items that I had on hand.
For the centerpiece we used a wooden bread bowl. Any large bowl, basket or tray will also work. We began by filling it with clippings of pine from my garden.
We added several mercury glass ornaments, 3 red ball ornaments and a few sprigs of box wood.
Once all of the main elements were in the bowl, I thought it would be fun if it had a frosting of snow.
I didn’t have any snow flocking on hand, but Steph suggested that we try powdered sugar.
We simply placed a little powdered sugar in a mesh strainer and "let it snow.” It worked great!
The powdered sugar added the perfect touch to our simple and festive centerpiece. Isn’t it beautiful? And best of all it was made with items around my house, no expense at all.
