Tablescapes, gold, red, sparkle, glitter....







Hello! Isn't this a fun time of year? I keep telling myself that! LOL....I feel more rushed than ever, less sleep, more things to be responsible for.



Here is one of my all time favorite tablescapes (last December)...it focuses on a centerpiece that has the Nativity scene. I just love it! I printed out little sayings on my computer then cut them with decorative scissors!



I pulled out all the gold things that I had and layered it with greenery and pinecones!



I love highlighting the cream urn with Joseph, Mary and little baby Jesus!






NEXT...I added a little country cottage Christmas feel with red and white. I'm going to do this again but with different elements...maybe red mittens, snow, icy looking candles...etc.















I love all things red, and white, and glittery!


















Thanks so much for coming by for a visit! Merry Christmas!

Blessings,

Debbie

Hi Debbie,

I LOVE your tablescape. The Nativity is gorgeous for the centerpiece and I love how you have put it in the urn. BEAUTIFUL!! I also love lots of sparkle or bling as we call it!!

Sounds like it is quite cold there. Our snow all melted by about noon yesterday, but it was pretty while it lasted.♥

The first table is so romantic! It is funny how you can add red to the decor, and it turns from romantic to fun.

Everything looks lovely on your Nativity 'scape. I like the calmness of it and how it reflects the reason for the season, especially your little computer print-outs.
