Wheew..... I'm finally done decorating! I've got some highlights of my Christmas kitchen decor, plus an easy and cheap idea for glamming up your glassware.
We are pretty casual at our home, so instead of using place cards, I decided to do tags for the glasses. I Mod Podged some Christmas scrapbook paper and names onto these inexpensive tags I got at the office supply isle at Wal-Mart. I'm not real crazy about my casual glassware so I decided to dress it up a bit.
I'd say I got a lot of bling for my buck!
ric-rac finished them off.
No money left for a fancy centerpiece so it's candles....simple
I used my everyday dishes-don't tell but I purchased the dinner plates and napkins at my local Kroger grocery store on clearance. The salad plates and rattan place mats are from Pier One, and the bowls are Gail Pittman from Southern Living at Home. The red chargers are from Target--another clearance find. I finished off the place setting with the napkin rings I made out of toilet paper rolls (if you missed that you can check out my earlier post).
My neighbor gave me this great star wreath for my birthday this year. Just loooove it--she got it at the War Eagle craft fair.
I needed something in my chandelier basket. I would love to have some huge pine cones (wouldn't that look great?) but I'm out of $$$ and we don't grow them big enough in our backyard. I had to go with something already on hand...maybe next year.
And the last thing I finished up this week.....the garland on my staircase and balcony.
