…and hickory dock
And don’t forget to hang up your sock
“Cause just exactly at 12 o’clock
He’ll be coming down the chimney
Coming down the chimney
Coming down the chimney, down!
I guess I am having a little too much fun with my title. Feeling festive yet? Because I am a little crazy, I set a holiday table (Christmas in November anyone?) and took pictures for you folks. No spend November means I used what I had. The most useful thing you can have in your decor arsenal are a few glass containers, be it apothecary jars, vases or large hurricanes (hellow TJ Maxx). They can change with the season and look gorgeous empty.
Ladies and gentleman, I cordially invite you to a (virtual) Holiday dinner at my house.
The centerpiece consists of two hurricanes (used for centerpieces at my sister’s shower, here) filled with pine cones and ornaments, candles (from Goodwill), and a rummage sale apothecary jar with bead garland. Simple and cheap.
On top of the plain white dinner plates I put my reindeer plates I scored at a rummage sale years ago. The cloth napkins are just tied with the same raffia from the place cards (here). I tell ya, that spool of raffia has gone the distance. Bought it years ago!
I have these polka-dot napkins I love. I didn’t have enough for everyone so I just used them for the end seats.
Really, a rather simple holiday table anyone can throw together before the guests arrive. Ribbon, glass containers, ornaments and lights are all you need to make your house a knock out. Don’t forget to make yourself a knock out too!
Well the plates, napkins and cups have all been put away, but the centerpiece and ribbon on the chairs will stay. What kind of holiday centerpiece are you rocking this year? Or maybe you aren’t the centerpiece type. Lets be honest, half of you probably haven’t even thought about it yet. Hope I gave you some ideas! Happy decorating.
