I'm re-sharing this post from last year - enjoy! Later this week, I'll be sharing some photos from our holiday parties this year!
This year, I continued my "Handstitched Holiday" theme to my table setting. As I mentioned, I have never before officially had a 'theme' for decoration for Christmas... this just sort of happened, but I like it. It makes every decorating, wrapping, baking and table setting project so easy.
I like this long brambling 'centerpiece' that runs the entire length of the table versus just one centerpiece element in the, well... center. To achieve this look, I placed sprigs of cedar to create a swag look. Next, I placed two boxwood topiaries (that used to live on my mantle...) and dressed them up with a red and natural striped ribbon. Finally, I tucked in various shapes and sizes of chunky white pillar candles.
