I set a fairly simple table with a very easy centerpiece of pinecones and green glass & silver mesh balls. I nestled six votive candles among the greens.
These amber glasses are circa 1974.
I like this table. I like the simplicity and how it blends so nicely with the bronze/green Christmas tree.
The second table is also set. I don't have enough of the same dishes, etc., so I did it differently, yet not glaringly so. I still used pine cones in the centerpiece and green plates.
I reversed the glassware/napkins colors. The pink tablecloth goes with the pink hydrangea tree as this table sits right next to that tree. It is a bit crowded with this table in the living room, but I guess being "cozy" is just part of the holiday season.
I am so glad you stopped by to visit my garden. I garden in lower northern Michigan (zone 5) in far less than ideal conditions. I have too many pine trees, too much shade, too many rocks, herds of hosta-munching deer and rabbits who think my lilly buds are gourmet appetizers. I am by no means an expert in horticulture or garden design--just an amateur with a shovel and a passion. My garden changes daily during the summer and I will be updating frequently.
During the winter months, I blog about my favorite cold-weather hobby--quilting and just my everyday musings.
I hope you enjoy your visit, and that you will come back soon.
