Make time this week to head out with your trug and scissors to snip fresh decorative foliage from the hedgerows. It’s ideal for creating thrifty festive napkins and placesettings for Christmas Day. Here at Country Days, we love simple rosehips – from the tight red ones to the more tomato-shaped orange ones – and winter berries from holly and pyracanthus.
Simple sprigs of berries and green foliage tucked into a striped or gingham ribbon is a simple way to brighten up a plain linen napkin. Placed on chunky white tableware, this rustic look can be complimented with red candles in glasses.
Or why not style mini felt pots with berries and fir tree cuttings? Stacked plates and bowls with plain and decorated designs topped with a plaid napkin finish the look. Complement with red goblets and felt-cut mats.
We would love to see pictures of your Christmas table. Please share them with us…Tweet
