A Simple Christmas Table Setting
I hope you are all having a great week!
I am sorry I wasn't able to post on Sunday night.

On another note.....
I wanted to share a few pictures of our Christmas table setting.
I actually had planned to do something else, but it didn't work.
I first tried to put magnolia branches down the center of the table.
Well it looked awful....
Since that didn't work, I basically just used what I had around the house....
I lined up five french canning jars down the middle of the table.
I added pomegranates to the top of two of the jars...
I haven't ever been a fan of baby's breath until I started reading Dusty Lu's Blog....
This is a very sparse bouquet... but it was all I had.
I only had a little bit of baby's breath and two different types of hydrangea blooms.
I tied twine around the napkins and added a sprig of boxwood and a paper white bloom.
I did this a couple of years ago for our Christmas Dinner.
I got out my favorite antique red and white dishes from France.
I used my red striped grain sack runner, that my mom made.
I recently found two french canning jars with the porcelain tops.
I love them.
As you can see I didn't do a lot to the table....

We have been fortunate enough to be able to spend some time with our families this week.
I hope you are all enjoying your week!
