The Perfect Table
By: Lori R
I ended up creating a whole place setting. The plate is sitting on a piece of the scalloped paper. To create a "place mat" I layered the clear sheet over the patterned paper and cut around the edges. The napkin holder is one of the die cuts from the Christmas Sleigh collection. I also added buttons around the charger plate to add texture and more color.
I choose to use 1 1/4 inch squares, to create these trees and the trees are sprinkled with dazzling diamonds. The squares were pinched in the middle and glued on at the tip, to the tree. It's the same technique as the "tissue paper school projects", we made back in the 2nd grade :)
The trees are arranged on a piece of the scalloped paper from the Christmas Sleigh collection, on a crystal cake plate. I placed a wreath around the bottom of the cake plate to jazz up the ensemble.
I embellished with a bird, a few small flower, and a ribbon.Then to finish the Christmas winter look, I hung snowflakes from the middle of the table (adding a focal point).
Do you do a big Christmas Dinner? Are you planning on setting your tables with decorations, matching this season? We'd love to see pictures. Feel free to share here.
