December is flying by and I’m trying to slow down and enjoy the gifts of the season with 10 days left until Christmas!
I set a table by the tree to enjoy the twinkle and glow of the lights. . .
I love this old-fashioned, snowy scene set on Royal Stafford Christmas Village plates. They’re framed with plaid dinner plate and snowy white and burnished silver chargers.
Mercury glass votives add an additional glow to the table . . .
And a reindeer sleigh provides a centerpiece, filled with a mixture of evergreens, apples, pinecones and shiny red ornaments.
I lined the sleigh with plastic, then added wet floral foam. I cut some magnolia, boxwood, pine, laurel and cypress to fill the sleigh. Pinecones are tucked in among the greenery and floral picks hold apples and red ornaments in place.
Reindeer & Sleigh Napkin Rings deliver tartan napkins. . .
I found the napkin rings at Ballard Designs and ordered a set of 4. When they arrived, I wished I had ordered 8, but they were sold out before Thanksgiving. Hopefully they’ll be back in stock again next year.
