Seeing Red (in the eating nook)


The table is all decked out for Christmas!


I picked some branches from a tree in the woods (smells so good, but man does it make my hands itch).  I tucked the branches in my vintage blue mason jar.  


There are tiny pine cones on the branches - they are sooooo adorable.  The smallest things excite me sometimes!  


I tied twine around the jar and strung a small red bulb on for a festive look.  


The table cloth, which I have had for years, has sparkly gold in it.  I purchased the gold charger plate at  Dollar Tree.  On the charger are white tipped pine cones and small red ornaments.  


The candle holders were my Grandmother's.  Cream colored votive candles adorned with frosted berry rings finish the look on the table.


For the light fixture above the table, I put some faux greenery with a little bling hanging.  Snowflakes and icicles.

  3. I love the simplicity of the cedar boughs in the blue mason jar! I bet it does smell heavenly. I love plaid so your table is a star in my book! I did a similar thing with my candy this year and I love it! Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  5. Thank you so much for visiting my blog. I love your table decor and the chandelier embellishment. It's really lovely. It must be beautiful to be in the countryside during winter. I grew up in a farming community and now I'm in Southern California. I have lots of palm trees but I miss the evergreens and farmland. I hope you have a blessed Christmas holiday :)

    1. Thanks Julia. I use a lot of blues in my decorating...Christmas and throughout the year, so splashes of red are very festive to me.
