I started out my table by using the tea towel for the middle of my table. I was going to use a tablecloth but I thought the tea towel would bring the table together.
For each place setting I used a tan coloured place-mat that I bought at the Dollar Tree. I had some Christmas plates that I have had for many years.. These plates were an off white colour. I add the Home and Garden plates. I made a tree design with the napkins. My plans were to put them on the plate but doing that covered the design so I decided to place them in the corner. I had some star shaped candles from party light that I placed one at each place setting. Added a snowflake cup, cutlery and a glass. Simple but I think elegant.
Tree design napkin and star candle.
As snowflakes seemed to be my design this year, I added one to the centerpiece which was a gold plate from Partylite and 4 candles tied with a gold ribbon. I then laid the snowflake against the candles.
I tied everything together by placing some greens around my light fixture and tied some snowflakes from the fixture at different lengths. I also had a string of bead that have gold and purple in them, these bead I strung over the greenery.
This table could be used all winter long. It isn't just for Christmas. With snowflakes, trees and candles it would work for an elegant gathering or a simple one.
