I wanted to add something semi-dramatic to the center of our dining room table this year.
I'm normally like to keep the centerpiece simple, but I was feeling daring this year.
I picked up this giant tray (actually two giant trays) at an antique store
in my parents' hometown over the Thanksgiving holiday. They were $2.00 each.
I know, I should have bought six, but you know how I like to buy things in pairs.
I took the glass from one of our lanterns (that used to hang over the dinging room table),
turned it upside down and added a little Christmas tree inside.
I do plan to relocate the lanterns to the new dining room, but in the meantime,
I thought I might as well make use of it.
Throw in a few shiny ornaments and some natural elements
and you've got yourself a semi-dramatic centerpiece.
I like the way it makes a statement without overpowering the table.
What's on your table for the holidays?
Hopefully you noticed the new navigation bar at the top
and the new social media buttons at the top right.
The talented Elizabeth from The Mustard Ceiling worked her magic once again.
I plan to do some behind the scenes work organizing the blog over the next two weeks.
Hopefully you will find the changes helpful.
I'll be back tomorrow with more Christmas to share.
