Welcome to the Christmas Ideas blog hop. I’m joining 27 other bloggers to share our Christmas ideas for mantels, tablescapes, wreaths and thrifty crafts. Yesterday nine bloggers shared their mantels and today I’m joining six other bloggers in sharing our tablescapes. At the end of my post is more information about the blog hop. Remember they don’t go live until their designated day. Have fun hopping from one to the next.
I was looking to do something new for my table this year but didn’t know what until I came across a box of jingle bells at Home Goods. At the time, I didn’t know what I would do with all the bells but knew that I had to have them! I mean, how often do you come across a box of adorable bells? I thought I could fill a lantern with them, string them around a tree or simply put them in a basket. Then the jingle bell holiday table setting idea came to mind!
This was a fun table to put together. I wanted to use my holiday tree plates that I have had for many years and the rustic trees with the burlap covered pots. So I was looking for a table runner that would be a little rustic and came across this adorable one with the red stripes and “It’s the most wonderful time of the year” saying.
The napkins with the red lace trim were a nice balance to the rustic runner. I adorned them with winter greenery and tied a bell around them. The slits in the bells were screaming to be place card holders. I couldn’t pass on that opportunity. Then I found this cute little sign to add to the other playful decorations.
I may have overdone it with the bells but I couldn’t help myself.
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here. Enjoy!
