simple holiday table dressing with cinnamon, greenery and coastal style
Tue 26th, Nov, 2013
G’day, how are you, are you in Christmas table dressing mode yet, well after a large gathering here at the weekend outside on our deck, I am definitely hostess with the Christmas mostess, haha…anyway I thought you might like to see these easy napkin ‘ring’ ideas – a traditional greenery, a bit of rustic with some cinnamon, and a coastal vintage style beach cottage twist.
I’m all about natural this Christmas (these would be lovely on your Thanksgiving table too if you celebrate), I wanted rustic and scented so I tied bits to the napkins
I used a neutral nautical stripe fabric ripped into strips but you could easily use string instead….
and tied it over greenery and cinnamon sticks….and added a few shells…kept the table really simple and bare just with a stripe runner and a little tree with a wrapped bottom (I cut a square from a drop cloth and tied it with coastal stripe fabric)
Any old greenery or sticks etc would work to pop under the tie, I am going to try ivy for my next guests, I have lots growing over the back fence, also thinking olive and bay leaves would be nice…both of those are free for the picking in my garden too…
A simple little table dressing idea…very very easy, and very good on the pocket…and smells lovely too…doesn’t take any crafting skill, you could get the kiddos to do this but makes a lovely addition to a Christmas table…
I love how it turned out….
