Woo Hoo! Today is the first day of the Christmas Blogger Block Party! It is going to be such a fun week! I can't wait to see all of the wonderful seasonal posts! I love this time of year!!!
Today is Debbie's Christmas Copycat Challenge. It is sure to be awesome and filled with lots of wonderful ideas! Her Halloween Challenge was a blast! For Christmas (and Thanksgiving actually) I decided to use the following picture as my inspiration piece. It is from Better Homes and Garden online.
This is what I used as my Thanksgiving centerpiece. I loved it so much AND I was trying to be frugal so I modified it to be used for Christmas.
For Christmas I switched out the gold tray with a red one.
I got them both at Target.
In place of rice and dried beans, I added layers of red and green M & Ms.
Seth had fun sorting them. Of course, since then I have had to stop him
from sneaking bites of my centerpiece!
I switched out the walnuts and pecans and replaced them with silver and red ornaments.
Then I exchanged the brown satin ribbon with festive red and green ribbons.
For the perfect finishing touch, I added shiny red and green bells
around the base of the apothecary jars. So pretty!!!
I love the way it looks on my casual Christmas table.
I think it is so cute - Even better than the Thanksgiving centerpiece :-)
I will be sharing more about the entire tablescape soon.
This week I will be sharing with the following:
