Festive Table Decorations...

Hi folks...here we go folks...the final Christmas Countdown...I can't help thinking it's snuck up on us all once again...hopefully you are all up to speed with your Christmas card sending and parcel wrapping and your thoughts have now turned to the Christmas Menu and decorating your festive table.  Seeing as it's my turn to post over on the Craftwork Cards blog today...I thought I'd make a table centrepiece and just to mix things up a bit go for a non traditional "woodland" theme with the gorgeous Paper Floristry Blush Rose Paper Pad...24 beautiful 8" x 8" papers (6 designs-4 of each) and 138 Die Cut Flowers...(oops...the pad is currently out of stock and not available to buy on the website but will be back again in the New Year)...


I covered a piece of chipboard with paper from the Blush Rose Paper Pad and cut a hole in the centre of corrugated card to hold the tealight holder which by the way is one I saved from one of my favourite M&S puddings....Raspberry Panacotta decorated with 2 strips of double sided tape and glittered with the most sparkliest of glitters...Platinum Stickles Dry Fine Glitter and I don't have to tell you that there was more glitter on me than on the project but hey there's nothing quite like a bit of Christmas face sparkle to spark a conversation when you head for the shops....
and then set to work glittering and layering die cut flowers...adding leaf spray die cuts from Sizzix...cones from the forest...lots of glittery sparkle and of course a sprinkling of Chunky White Frantage Embossing Powder and why not make place name cards to match...
and if I get a wiggle on I may just have time to add matching napkin rings and even some home made crackers whilst I get busy busy in the kitchen with the Christmas Menu Cookathon.
I'm all of a flutter...so excited I could crush a grape...it's the Strictly Final tonight so I'll be locking the door...not answering the bell and taking the phone off the hook....snuggled up on the sofa with a cheeky red and no doubt scaring the living daylights out of my Furry Partner if my favourite couple lift the glitter ball trophy.
See you all tomorrow
Hugs Kath xxx

Good Morning Kath. Your centrepiece is so stunning a real researcher. I love the name cards too and napkin holders would just finish it off nicely. My bakeathon will be tomorrow and Monday as we are going to Annie's for Christmas. Wishing you a Fabulous Christmas and a Wonderful Crafty New Year. Hugs Rita xxx

Stunning :)
I have made myself a note to make something similar next year. I think my "to do" list is still too long to add anything new this year!
Enjoy Strictly tonight. My evening will be pretty similar.
Have a great Christmas. I've loved seeing your creations over the year. Wish I lived closer to be able to come to a class.

Your Christmas table is going to look very glamorous indeed, that centrepiece is stunning! I am looking forward to Strictly too but I don't think my favourite will win, if you can believe what the papers say..... still, it will be fabulous! Hugs, Anne x

wonderful centre piece Kath - really gorgeous - and so creative! I hope the festive cookathon goes well and that you enjoy strictly - I'm a bit torn this year - there's one couple I don't want to win but I'm happy if any of the others do! Lol!!!! I don't really mind that much if that one does win!!! They're all very good xx

It's so beautiful. I think your trek for pine cones was worth it! Love that blush color with all the glitter. Have a wonderful holiday with your family.

Your table centre piece looks lovely Kath - but as I am not entertaining this year have my usual white cyclamem on mine. Baking all those mini mince pies tomorrow - today is housecleaning (which I've bunked off for a few minutes to visit you) and then, yes, my decs can go up! Shopping done yesterday and parcels to wrap but I feel I'm on the home run now. I too will be watching the final - so sad it's coming to an end again. Boo hoo! X

Hi Kath, lovely centre piece, now I know what to do with the bag of cones I collected years ago. It will have to be Christmas 2014 though, no time left now. Enjoy the dancing I'll greet if my choice doesn't win!...Trish

Kat said...

Gorgeous centre piece and name cards Kath. I need to get on and make my name cards. I'm making small crackers - might not have names on them though!

I still need to do some cooking and baking too!
