Tis the time of year to start getting ready for the Holidays, Christmas is just around the corner and that means time to change the landscape, by which I really mean tablescape. Nothing says its the most wonderful time of the year better then a beautiful tablescape. OK True a tree decorated with lights and tinsel says hello wonderful season too
For me the Christmas season starts with the table, it will be the first hint when you walk into my home… Take a glance into the dining room, check out my table and that will tell you if I have begun the seasonal transition. Then of course it slowly starts spreading through the house.
I love creating amazing napkin creations for the holidays and thought that the tress were a perfect accent to my dishes. This is a really simple pattern to copy and really makes a wonderful statement.
I created some unique and fun chargers, a little bit of chalkboard paint and chalk allowed a personalization of each place setting ( something if you have children you can allow them to create to fully participate in the table decorating).
The special bonus of creating a beautiful table setting for the holidays, everyone figures the dining room is no longer the catch all room for all of their stuff. A set table does not allow for dropped books, old mail or newspapers…. how cool is that a set table keeps the room clean and holiday ready. Try it seriously it works.
Are you a table person? I set mine for every season and every holiday, setting the table is my happy place. Funny statement, I bet if my dad could hear me say setting a table is my happy place he would be in total shock. Truly the fights as a child about setting the table were crazy, flash forward its one of my favourite chores and one I try to share with others so they also start feling the joy.
Merry Christmas and hope you take a little something away and set your own “Peace” of solitude in your home.
