THURSDAY - Christmas TABLE SETTINGS that will have YOUR Guest TALKING!

Christmas Table Settings
Every Year I search to find new and exciting ideas to decorate my dining room table for the holidays. Its not enough just to throw a simple bouquet in a vase. I want my dinner guests to not only remember the tasty food but also the beautiful atmosphere while they enjoy there food. I like to make my centerpieces a focal point for conversation. ...
Below are a few ideas.....That may get your creative juices flowing in the right direction!!!
Thank you Martha.....

Wintery Centerpieces

A combination of vintage and contemporary vessels holds white spider mums, seeded eucalyptus 
(available at florists), and blue Atlas cedar branches lightly frosted with silver floral spray paint. 
For a change of scene, line containers down the middle of a table.

Gilded Pear Basket

Pears sprinkled with with edible gold dust look straight out of a fairy tale.
 Magnolia leaves are also transformed with gold, in the form of floral paint. 
A beribboned, gold-dusted fruit welcomes each guest to the table.

Cranberry Flower Frog

Fill a glass vase with cranberries and beautiful fresh roses for a festive touch at the holiday table.

Yuletide Topiary

Using carnations to evoke a snow-covered tree, this centerpiece transforms
 the tabletop into a fanciful winter garden.

Christmas Cloche
Filled with sparkly trimmings, these garden cloches add radiance to any tabletop.
You can likely find these cloche domes in your local craft store (Michael's or Hobby Lobby)


Tree-Shaped Candles
A COLLECTION of candles adorned with beeswax trees create an enchanting winter landscape on the tabletop.

Peppermint-Candy Place Card

What could be sweeter? Cut out 3-inch ovals from colorful card stock. 
Using a hole punch, make a hole at each end, and then neatly write your guests' names on the ovals with black ink. Thread ribbon scraps, each about 6 inches long and 1 1/2 inches wide, through the backs of the place cards. 
Notch the ribbon ends, and set a card at each place setting.
