~~Christmas Day Tablescapes~~

Merry Christmas everyone!! I hope you are all having a wonderful Christmas eve! You are probably busy getting ready for the big day tomorrow. Can you believe it's already here?? I sure can't... I was hoping to join Between Naps on The Porch for Tablescape Thursday, but could not get everything ready in time. (Edited to add...I decided to join Tablescape Thursday this week Dec. 29. Please visit Between Naps on the Porch for more) Better late than never I guess! lol...We will be having a late Christmas lunch at our house tomorrow. My mom is doing most of the cooking and my only dish is a fruit salad! I usually get off easy around the holidays. Everyone knows I am not much of a cook...lol

My tablescape last year was similar to this, however, I redid the centerpiece with new garland, glittered berries, ribbon and gold balls. I also added new gold napkins and napkin rings along with the beaded napkin rings I used last year. I bought the napkin rings at Dillard's last night. I literally stood there for 15 minutes trying to talk myself out of them...lol. But they were just soooo pretty!!

I went in my ribbon stash and found some beautiful ribbons that complimented the napkins and place mats.
A view looking into the living room...everything looks so warm at night!



Here is a closeup of those pretty napkin rings...they are mirrored. I mentioned last year that I bought the holly dishes at the Dollar Store! They look pretty when they're all dressed up.

I took a few pics this morning. I wrapped all of the presents and did the tablescape last night or should I say this morning...lol. I was up until 3:00! I was determined to get everything done so I can rest tonight after the Christmas Eve service.

Lots of presents! Chase thinks he knows what most of them are...hmmm...
I posted this tablescape a few weeks ago...it is ready for Christmas morning breakfast! We will be having monkey bread, fruit, and my Mam maw's sausage balls. Yum!



Sassy wishes you a Merry Christmas too!!

I know we all get caught up in decorating and shopping, at least I do...but now I am reflecting on the real meaning of Christmas... JESUS.
Wishing you a wonderful Christmas filled with joy and peace!!!

Your table looks beautiful, Kristen! I love those napkins and the napkin rings! Your centerpiece looks great; I almost hate to remove mine to bring the food in. I could not find my Christmas tablecloths or napkins this year and was freaking out a little bit. First thing on my after Christmas sale list is a new tablecloth {maybe 2} and napkins!

Beautiful, Kristen. Did you use regular garland to make the runner with the hurricanes on your dining table? I love that!
I also sent you an email about a tassel. I'm not sure if you received it though.
Happy Holidays~
