The Holiday Table

This Christmas, consider repurposing everyday items into holiday decorations.  Dough bowls look great holding glass ornaments.  Wire baskets, crates, or bird cages make rich looking receptacles for greens, berries, nests, and birds.  Cloches can enclose winter scenes.  Quilts and vintage lace make rich tablecloths.  Hang vintage Christmas cards or ornaments from chandeliers with ribbon.  Stack crates to display collections on.  Use buckets, milk bottles, Mason jars, or old cookie jars as vases.  Decorations for the rustic table are everywhere!

Have fun decorating this holiday season!  Add some home baked cookies, and your table will be the gathering place of the neighborhood.
