It’s starting to look a lot like Christmas at our house! I still can’t believe it’s already time to put up Christmas decorations, though. I feel like it’s still July…
I’ll post later about our tree soon, but in the meantime, I’ll show you our table centerpiece. Ta da!
I left the table runner I used for fall out on the table since it was nice and neutral, then added three Dollar Tree vases filled with cranberries. I got the cranberries several years ago and can’t remember where I bought them. Target or Michael’s are my best guess.
I found a 25′ live pine garland at Home Depot on Saturday for $5! Apparently, their Black Friday specials went past Friday–woot! At first, I lined the garland all down the table, but then remembered I’m a simplistic freak (remember this?), so stewed over how to make it simple and easy to move when we use the table. Cue a Walmart clearance basket from a couple years ago. I think I paid $3 or $4 for it. It was a great size to contain the decorations and made it easy to move around. I lined the basket with parchment paper since the pine garland was kind of sappy. Then, I just plopped the vases into the basket and filled in the basket with clippings from the pine garland.
Done! So easy and cheap, especially since I had almost all of it on hand already! Love it! Of course, you could snazz it up a bit with candles or pine cones, etc, but I like it simple. Surprised? 😉
I’ll post soon about more Christmas decor!
Linking up to Two Twenty One!
