{ Decorating for the Holidays }

I taped a show recently and I had the chance to share some tips and tricks for getting your house holiday ready.
So I thought I'd share some things you can do that have big impact and little money to prepare for the upcoming entertainment season.

with fresh cut black walnut chargers

I added stripes of black striped burlap webbing from burlapfabric.com

I tied the silverware up with a black toile napkin, and some springs of pine nestled in a paper cone.

The place cards are made of vintage book paper and logs. I drilled a tiny hole into small logs and inserted a twisted wire to hold the name card.

I added these paper ornaments to the back of the chairs for an extra little pop.

In the center of the table I placed glittered and paper wrapped candles on a silver tray with pine cones and logs sprinkled around about.

Another centerpiece I showed was this one made from mostly vintage Christmas balls.

An easy trick to add some interest to your food display is to add different heights.

We added a drink station for kids too.

So easy, which by the way, I need to stop saying.
Gallons of cider poured into a glass container.
Piles of country fabric.
Apples and pears galore.

A simple hand written sign.

And mason jars with brown and white striped paper straws.

The mantel needed to be spruced up a little.So I added a few things.

like these mason jars filled with green lentils.

See anything you'll try this holiday season?
