Obviously, from last year. (God knows I'm never that ahead of the game). I'm just starting to decorate for this holiday and thought I'd share.
I've done all kinds of "themed" Christmas tables, but I always go back to super classic Christmas decor; poinsettias, plaid and all. It just has that warm, familiar traditional cheer.
I made place cards from white card stock (use ivory if your china is ivory) and marker. I'd considered watercoloring the holly leaves, but since I was days behind with the baking, I went for the quickie magic of layered marker.
These stuffed penguin ornaments were so adorable. I could just see them marching across the kids' table.
So I had my daughter help me glue gun black foam core to the bottoms to make a base.
Voila! Kids' place cards/favor ornaments. Sorry they ravaged the kid table before I could snap photos.
My three favorite gifts of all time...
Hope you're enjoying your holiday decorating and wishing you and your loved ones the joy of the season!
