The Fabric Maverick says...Create your own personalized Christmas on the 8th Day of Christmas!

December 8, 2008

Part of the fun of Christmas is creating a table everyone wants to be at. Are you whimsical, contemporary or traditional? You are probably a blend. I am much more whimsical. Like my own life, everything is patched together. A business aquaintance invited me to a Christmas brunch several years ago. Her table was elegantly set with lovely tableware and placemats. I was complimenting her on her glassware and she started laughing. She told me that these were glasses she received as a promotional item from a fast food chain!  She combined them in such a way that everything looked very elegant and expensive. Look around your house. I bet you have everything you need. It doesn't have to be expensive to look great. As you may guess, I never throw anything away. This, of course, includes fabric scraps.  The Dollar Tree even had green goblets for $1.00. This is my new favorite place.

Tomorrow, Nancy is going to show you a contemporary table setting inspired by Amy Butler. I am going to show you a whimsical one. Christmas Runner.jpg

Go outside to your yard. I bet you have pinecones, twigs, berries and boxwoods. Pinecones can be turned into miniature trees. Create your own floral arrangement from the berries and boxwoods in your yard; I have been known to 'borrow' some from the neighbors. You do not need to spend big bucks to create a great look! Your challenge today is to create your own individual table look! Have fun.
