It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas crafting time…and I’m inappropriately obsessed with cranberry garland.  While, yes, a wee bit mindlessly time consuming, they are a simple and  affordable way to bring some holiday cheer to your tree, mantle piece or table setting.  By the way, totally dig the popcorn addition.

Another fun and creative way to usher in the festivities: decorative chair backings. These angel wings are perfectly spectacular.

I happen to own acrylic chairs and love this darling mistletoe wrap.  The kids’ table is also amazing…adore how everything is just a miniature replica of the grown-up sector.

Easy-peasy paper snow flake ornaments add a darling touch.

The bows are the perfect simple pop of red on the white chairs.  I’m a huge fan of monochromatic tablescapes and  these festive paper balls add playful whimsy.

Another awesome use of inexpensive items you already have boxed about.  Hanging ornaments are magical and impactive.

More hanging ornaments…LOVE.  These carnations in reused bottles are absolutely splendid and completely budget friendly.  This is indeed my personal frontrunner table inspiration.

My Mom bought me these adorable stocking silverware holders a few years back and they’ve since headlined two years in a row.


Hope some of these creative designs have inspired the inner magic maker in you!  Happy Holidays!
