With the flip of the calendar to December, it’s going to be all things Christmas and holidays around here! Although, I have to say I feel a bit late to the game. Christmas seemed to arrived earlier than ever this year. Not that I’m complaining. It takes everything in me not to start posting about the holidays right after Halloween. In fact I read somewhere that those who decorate for the holidays early are happier than those who don’t. Good enough for me – let’s dive into today’s post on Decking the Halls.
I must say writing a post about a tablescape in the days after the horrific violence in Las Vegas and Edmonton and what feels like weeks of devastation and destruction, feels frivolous and superficial. And while I’m not sure what would be an appropriate post to write, I wanted to take a moment to acknowledge my deep sadness and send thoughts of love and prayers to those affected in particular, but all of us really. I honestly have no words.
With Christmas less than two weeks away, it’s time to start thinking about your Holiday Tablescape. If you’ve been following me for a while, you know I take my tablescapes very seriously. I start planning them months in advance; I’ve also been known to set the table weeks before Christmas and then not let anyone touch it until the magical day arrives.
While perhaps a little crazy ;-), planning so far in advance allows me to slowly pull together pieces to create the perfect setting. Because I have so much fun designing tables, this year I thought I would offer you three very different tablescape inspirations to help you create a beautiful table to host family and friends.
