Hello all and thank you so much for stopping by!
I certainly hope you enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving on Thursday. I know I gobbled until I wobbled.
Wow I cannot believe we are already into the Christmas season, you certainly wouldn't know it by the warm almost early fall like temps we have been experiencing here in the northeast. The weather yesterday was so amazing that I simply had to take advantage of it by getting outdoors and creating a Christmas tablescape on the back porch.
My first thought was to do a pretty table in red and white. But once I got started, for some reason, it just didn't feel right. Maybe because the grass in our backyard is greener now than it was in June! So then I decided to use the color scheme which I had chosen for the furnishing's cushions on the back porch, and carry it on to the tabletop. That being one of my favorite color combos blue and white.
A little sparkle was added in the way of silver along with accents of green using apples and fresh cut greens.
My two little love birds once again made it onto my table setting. Two silver napkin rings were added to the candle holders to give them a little more interest.
The napkins themselves were rolled up and tied off with a simple piece of jute twine. A fresh sprig of arbor vitae was added for a seasonal touch.
I just couldn't resist a pretty evening shot, or two!
How about you...have you started your Christmas decorating yet???
