DIY Christmas Tablescape on a Budget

DIY Christmas Tablescape on a Budget

Decorating & Remodel, Holiday Decorating & Crafts

My Mom has a fancy dinner on Christmas, I can remember this tradition since I was a little girl.  As I think back about this dinner there is one thing that comes to mind, her gold silverware.  My mom has always loved gold and believe it or not I have never been much of a fan of it until lately.  So you can imagine her surprise when I asked if we could use the gold silverware.

This year we decided to do a test run of how the Christmas table would look.  It was nice setting everything up at my mom’s.  We started decorating it last night….and this morning when I got there it was just as I left it.  That never happens here with 3 kids, the minute I turn my back someone has to be touching and messing up something.

We wanted to create a beautiful table without spending a fortune.  One of the best ways I have found to do that is to use things I already have.  You may recognize these ornaments in the background because I have used them for years, the gold twigs were leftover from last years decorations, the wine glasses we found at the dollar store, and the pinecones I bought last year because they smelled so good!

Now that this table is set I can’t wait for Christmas…eeek!  Since my mom doesn’t have little kids running around anymore she is leaving it just like this until Christmas!  We may need to replace a few of the fresh items but it is perfect!
