My love of nature always manifests itself in the way I decorate our home for the holidays. This year, I've made the most of out a beautiful cedar garland I purchased from Costco. First up, was the table. I started the table festooning with a simple piece of fabric I had torn into the size I needed. I like the simple, frayed edge of handtorn fabric AND it's an easy no-sew way to go.
Next, I added an old table runner I had on hand, but a simple piece of fabric would work just as well. I say, use what you have.
Next, came the star of the show - the beautiful, multiple-use, inexpensive garland. Garlands have a tendenceny to curve a bit. Don't fight it, the curves are nice and make for nice little coves to add other natural elements.
For a fuller table covering, I added in some pepperberries and more greenery. The great thing about all of these elements are that they will stay vibrant in color through the holidays.
And to top it all off, pinecones.
In my next post, I'll show you where else I used the garland. xo
