I changed out the charger from a gold to garnet and added a cardinal salad plate. A touch of garnet on the glassware and a place card holder also in a garnet red is all this table needed. You can see how to make the place card holders here, these are so simple and go together in a matter of minutes.
I kept the bay leaf centerpiece and it looks just as good for Christmas as it did for Thanksgiving.
I made a bay leaf wreath for the back of each chair, same process as the little boxwood wreaths
I made here. I picked up bags of bay leaves at Penzy, this is a super simple project and smells good as a bonus.
