It’s the little touches at Christmas…


My wonderful friend, Pat, sent me these pictures of her amazing Christmas creations.  Two things inspired me when I looked at the pictures.  The first thing would be the utter simplicity of each arrangement.  There isn’t an item she used that most of us can’t reach into a holiday storage box or cabinet and grab: a tray or flea market vase; random ornaments, candles, decorative candle holders, etc.  The addition of simple greens fills in the negative spaces and completes the look.  The greens can be boxwood cut from a common yard hedge or a quick grab from the floral stand at any grocery store.

The second thing I love is the “V” tag.  It is such a personal and easy touch and can be designed and printed from any computer program.

With only a day or two before the holiday, here is a simple way to beautify any table top in your home.

Thanks, Pat!

I hope you find some inspiration.
