Simple everyday items like a B&W dishes mixed with holiday patterns, a scarf as a runner, and a folded stripe dishtowel can add layers of pattern to a tablescape. The napkin here was rolled than folded over and tied with twine.
A simple evergreen, twine and candy cane can personalize a place setting.
Books & cake plates can add height and visual interest to a tablescape.
For gifts, I just used simple brown craft paper tied with some left over twine from my holiday decor. I also used some twine on the small stainless tumblers I used to hold some petite fresh greens on the table. I had also used the smaller fresh greens on some of the wrapped gifts. The majority of the greens I used mixed with some lilies I picked up at the grocery store and some eucalyptus from Micheal's. The fresh arrangement smelled great in the crisp, cool winter air! I also some of the craft paper to wrap some of Sephora's cat grass...
Pets are a part of the family too.
Don't forget to wrap their special gifts as well.
A bathroom tumbler can make a great small vessel for a petite arrangement.
Brown paper packages tied up with string really are a few of my favorite holiday things...
Thanks for stopping by!
