Christmas Table Decor

One of my favorite things is setting up the holiday table. A place for family to gather to eat, pray, and laugh! I like to continue the sparkle of the holiday throughout each room. This room gets silver and crystal. Of course for a photo you don't get to see the beauty of the sparkle. So you have to imagine it!

I made the napkin rings by gluing ornaments to old rings. I went with a snowflake motif to match the dishes.

The teacups are crystal and I may add names to the snowflakes for place settings.

Even the light fixture gets some bling! I am still in search for my crystals that dangle from each candle. I am afraid I used it in a craft project!!! Whoops!

My chairs are covered with pillowcases. Yep you heard right. It is so simple to just pull them over the top of the chair and embellish it with a bow. This can be done in many colors to change up the look. It is better to me than sewing or buying a slipcover.

I add a silver and white bow with crystals dangling from the centers. I only cover two of the chairs so it is not so matchy, matchy.

I will probably add a few more details to it but you get the gist.

Now we are ready for a wonderful Christmas Dinner! Italian of course!

Just a few more days to enter the Giveaway for a WISH sign!
