Thanksgiving it officially in the rear view mirror and it is time to think about Christmas! Alex hates when Christmas encroaches on Thanksgiving, so I make a point to wait as patiently as I can to start the decorating, and with Thanksgiving being so late this year it was a challenge. So, I have not done my decorating yet, but I had a tablescape for holiday entertaining from last year that I never got around sharing so I figured better late than never! After making this holly wreath for our door last year and having it fall off the door 15 times, I started thinking about what we could do with it indoors instead. That is when I realized it was the perfect size to fit around our large candle to dress up the table.
It almost looks like I planned it right? Amazing when it all comes together and works out. With the few extra sprigs, I continued the holly theme along the length of the table as well. I also used my beautiful new gold and silver place mats from Cost Plus World Market and did a quick project of making chalkboard holiday wine glasses.
Simple, easy and festive!
And it looked great with the overhead light turned off so we could dine by candle light only.
Now to decide on this year’s decorations and get started sprucing up our new home for the holidays! I can’t wait to start sharing a few fun and simple holiday decorations over he next few weeks. Plus a few more posts of the rooms changing colors as we finish up painting our house too!
