Holiday Decorating

Holiday Decorating Made Easy-Dining Room Table and Mantle

I have to be in the mood for Christmas before I can start decorating my own home…and being in the mood definitely means waiting until AFTER my birthday, 12/4. This year, we are going to the sun for a week before Christmas, so I don’t want to do too much decorating, but, I don’t want my house sitter to feel like she is missing out on the holiday spirit, so I am going to be decorating my dining room table and mantle today. Tomorrow, I may tackle another table top.

Easy Holiday Table Decor

You can create a “garland” just by cutting greenery from your yard!

In this example I cut a variety of greenery for the table and laid it down the center. Then I added some beautiful red ornaments and a few stems of phalaenopsis orchids. In this case the orchids were fresh, but you could easily use silk flowers as well. I also added a little bit of bling with some pearl and gold sprays.

I did the same thing for the mantle, but since I had the vases on the end of the mantle I also included some branches with little red berries…super easy to do!
