8 Weeks of Easy Family Dinners E-Cookbook!
I’m so excited to share how I decorated my holiday table this year!
You may have noticed that you haven’t seen much of my house this Christmas season. There’s a good reason for that. I haven’t really decorated much! I kind of just put up the same stuff I’ve put up before and called it a day. Sometimes that’s all you can do, right?
I hung my lighted garland above my beautiful chalk painted hutch and added the faux poinsettias that I bought several years ago. Going for a very classic look this year, and I think I’ve achieved that. The one thing I was longing for though, was a pretty centerpiece for my table. That’s why I was so incredibly excited when I got the opportunity to sample an arrangment from Bouqs.
Bouqs is an online floral boutique which features gorgeous flowers that are cut and shipped the same day, meaning they arrive super fresh, and they will last much longer. I placed them in a simple vase surrounded by my advent candles and some rustic pinecones. The candles are simply mason jars filled with Epsom salt and small white votive candles. I’m just simply in love with my Christmas centerpiece!
They arrived in a box, ready for me to arrange. Now, bear in mind that I usually stink at arranging flowers, but this was so easy. Just place them in a vase, add some water, and boom, you’re done!
They are a gorgeous addition to my holiday table, don’t you think?
I wanted something simple and classic, and I had fun reusing pieces from Christmas’s past. The only “new” things are my gorgeous flowers!
I also added printable chalkboard napkin rings with some candy canes, and guess what? They are a free printable for you! You can download them at the bottom of this post and print them out to add to your own holiday table setting.
Simple. Lovely. Just what I needed.
My tree is filled with cherished ornaments belonging to me and my children. I didn’t even add the glass balls this year because I wanted to just enjoy looking at all of the collected memories.
Here are close-ups of the vignettes on the hutch.
I was inspired by my sweet friend Ann Marie of White House Black Shutters, who created an adorable cotton ball garland. I stuffed a bunch of cotton “snow” balls in my vintage mason jars and I think they are just beautifully charming and sweet.
