I have been thinking and thinking about my Christmas table setting since I put up my Christmas stuff. I have been stumped. Pinterest has been helpful, but I have also loved too many different ideas. Almost as if I have too many choices so I can’t decide.
I also realize that I have waited far too long to decide how I want to decorate my table for Christmas dinner… All of the Christmas decor has been picked through and all of the good stuff is gone.
Tuesday I was at Hobby Lobby trying to figure out what chargers to buy for place settings. I was wanting to do pretty red chargers, white plates and black and white buffalo plaid napkins. Well. I cannot get the napkins here before Christmas. Then I saw them. In Hobby Lobby and 50% off… Not as well priced as Amazon…. But I was willing to pay. However, they only had 4. I need 12. Back to the drawing board.
Next up, the black and white buffalo plaid chargers. What, mix up my original idea? I quickly pull items together and make a little place setting on the floor of Hobby Lobby. I am liking this idea. I can get 12 red napkins delivered from Amazon in 2 days for only $15
Then I expand. It keeps getting better. I had ordered a Silhouette Portrait for putting together some name tags for dinners or labels for food at parties. I got to use it on this! My Silhouette came with little pens to write with and I played with those, I love how the names turned out. I added a little ribbon and voila! (Oh la la as Claire says).
Then on Wednesday I was walking around WalMart… I got tasked with buying gifts for my kids from Grandma on Tuesday night. I wander around to the Christmas trees and decor. And there the angels were singing. I found the spot with bristle brush tress. Lots of them. 9 inch tall trees, 6 inch trees… And they were perfectly priced. $2 and $1. I bought all of the ones that matched in both sizes. I knew this was going to be DARLING.
As I walked in to Target the angels sang and I saw the most darling candle holders in the Dollar Spot. Hurry, go grab them before they are gone!
Down to the final details. Isn’t it perfect???
