Happy Wednesday! Can you believe Christmas is a week from today. . . how did that happen?
I set a table by the tree to enjoy the twinkle and glow of the lights and for a little December nesting.
Cardinals have flown in for a Cardinal Christmas. . .
A tartan throw provides a foundation for the table as a tablecloth, adding a warm and cozy plaid layer.
And a natural runner of evergreens . . .cypress, juniper, boxwood and fir, is sprinkled down the center of the table, with Cardinals in glittery nests. Cardinal ribbon weaves through the greenery, with pine cones and mercury glass votives, to add a warm glow to the table.
A Fitz and Floyd Cardinal Christmas Santa Pitcher is serving as a centerpiece for the table. It’s filled with fresh-cut greenery, red ornaments, berry picks, pine cones and Cardinal ribbon. . .
And a Cardinal ornament perches on a pine branch.
Red paisley and plaid napkins are married with a pair of napkin rings. . . a pine cone napkin ring and a floral beaded napkin ring, the more pattern, the merrier!
And plaid rimmed salad plates with Cardinals flew in from HomeGoods. . .
With twig flatware and tree slice chargers, adding a woodland note.
