TABLESCAPE TUESDAY - Christmas Tablescape

Merry Christmas!  

I thought I'd share my Christmas Tablescape on this Tablescape Tuesday!

This year I decided to go with a red and white theme.  It just felt so crisp and nice for this season!  

I used a plain white tablecloth and decorated it with a red and white chevron wrapping paper runner I found a the Dollar Tree.  You can't beat a cute table runner for 1 dollar!

My centerpiece was a red tray from Goodwill.  Inside the tray were all kinds of goodies.  The red candleholder in the center was a Michael's purchase last year.  To the side are two double-bud vases also from Michael's.  Instead of putting flowers in them, though, I topped them with sparkly ornaments.  Lining the bottom is silver tinsel, silver curly ribbon, more ornaments, and some battery-operated lights that twinkled so nicely in the tray!

The Charger plates were a Walmart purchase a couple years ago, topped with a white dinner plate and white dinner bowl (Dollar tree 2 years ago) crystal goblets and a red and white polka dot bread plate (Ross).

For the backdrop, I put two white christmas trees on some white columns on both sides of the hutch.  They are decorated with red tinsel and ornaments, and white lights.    I love how they turned out.

Here's another view of the other side looking into the living room, also decorated in red and white for Christmas.   To see a better view of the living room.  You can check out my post here.

Wishing you a very Happy Holiday season and a very prosperous New Year!!!  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Monthly Monday Mantle - Christmas Mantle!

Where has this year gone?   I can not believe that Christmas is almost here!   

This post is late in coming, but I hope you'll enjoy seeing what I did with our mantle this year for Christmas!

Having a mantle to decorate this year has been so much fun!   

I wanted to go with a red and white theme!   I was just really liking those colors together this year!

I was really wanting some sparkle and shine this year with the red and white, so I incorporated some silver into the mix.

Using some inexpensive dollar tree items and items from thrift stores along with things I already had and a few craft projects, this came together for not too much money.

Here is the full living room decorated for the season!  It feels so nice to be in this room over the Holidays!

Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and a blessed New Year!!!
