When I was in Florida a couple of weeks ago we were discussing real tree vs artificial and in that conversation it was suggested that I put up a small real tabletop tree this year. I'm loving the look and smell of this little beauty, I set four place settings around it just for show, obviously no one would be able to sit there and eat without getting an eye poked out by the branches.
I picked up the chair covers at the dollar store to add a little extra color to the table setting.
The Believe bowls were a steal at 90 cents each on a clearance after Christmas last year and the napkins (actually dish towels) were from the dollar store. The water glasses were a promo years ago from Arby's. My friend Sharon and I were laughing the other night about how many trips we made to Arby's to get the glasses. They would only let you buy one per person so we would hit two or three Arby's locations on a Friday night. We even talked some others into ordering a glass for us with their orders. The twig chargers are from Nell Hill's.
Without giving any thought to it I guess I'm working on a Santa theme Christmas at the house this year. I'll post the simple outdoor decoration I have on my front porch later this week.
