Can you believe tomorrow is Christmas Eve?! There are so many last minute details to wrap up today and tomorrow that my head is spinning a bit. I know I’m not the only one out there wrapping presents, running to the store, and getting their home ready for guests. At least I imagine everyone is just as busy as me because it makes me feel better.
One item I can cross off my list is this year’s Christmas table. As always, my tablescapes are impromptu and very inexpensive since I usually shop my house and use glass containers that can be filled with holiday décor I already have. I don’t think I shared how inexpensive they are. My Thanksgiving table this year cost a whopping $3 for the gold pinecones I used as vase filler. I spent a bit more on Christmas, which came in at $14. I think this is the most I have ever spent!
I was so excited to find this red tablecloth on sale at Target for $8. I knew it would match my centerpiece perfectly that I put together from an old garland I made years ago. Reuse and repurpose when you can!
The Christmas plates were a gift many years ago and the champagne glasses were purchased at Ikea last year.
I was too exhausted last night to worry about ironing the tablecloth. I’m hoping the wrinkles will fall out today. If not, I’ll live. Raising three boys has beat any type A personality traits out of me.
I filled the glass cylinders with real cranberries, sprigs of garland from my breakfast room chandelier, and floating candles. My husband said, “what?!” when I started filling them with water to make the cranberries and candles float. Ha! I got the idea from wedding tablescapes I’ve seen on Pinterest. There are so many different things you could do with these glass cylinders-ornaments, branches, candles, pinecones, snow, etc. I picked them up several months ago at Target for $10 each knowing I would use them over and over again without ever having the same look.
At least this room is ready for Christmas! Are you ready?
