When we started brainstorming for our Christmas tablescape, we decided that we wanted to keep it simple and inexpensive. Our plan was to use things we (and probably you) have laying around the house to minimize costs. For the centerpieces, I crafted some candle holders out of Corey’s leftover beer bottles to be combined with some greens clipped from the bottom of Megan’s tree while Meg crafted the pretty snowball garland from cotton balls and twine (DIYs for both to come). Since we are about to move out of my apartment, we thought it might be nice to use my porch (and already hung Christmas decorations) for the setting. Finishing touches included some last minute pink place cards saying Merry Christmas in four languages and a candy cane placed in the water goblets. All in all, I think we spent approximately $10: for the candle holder crafting supplies and the candy canes.
We also wanted to say that Meg was inspired to do the snowball garland by our lovely friend Brynn, who did a more fancy and beautiful version with fluffy little yarn pom poms on her blog last week. Definitely check out the post at Citron Rose Bleu.
