It’s that time of year again, holiday times. That means company and parties and sometimes lots of stress over how to get it right. This year I thought I would give you some tablescape ideas centered around three items. These three easy to find and use items are ornaments, candles and flowers/greenery. These items are all around this time of year which means you can get them inexpensively and have many to choose from. Remember when you are designing your table to have fun, be unique and don’t be afraid to be different.

Here are some great starting points to begin with and then make your own.
