Beautiful #Christmas #Decor. Love the #Rustic centerpiece. Cute! Slices of tree trunk would make rustic chargers!

  1. LOVE this. My sister's house (where we will be for Christmas) has red touches…I'm inspired to set the table for her. Last time I was there, she noticed all my little decorating changes after we left. She's not in to decorating as much as we are, but she appreciates it. I want you to meet her.

    Really loving the plaid and the napkin details!!

  4. Hi Cindy,
    Love the red plaid, I may have to try something along this line next year in my cozy cottage.
    One year I took over sized men's shirts ( white) buttoned them up and slipped them over my dinning chairs as of the chair was wearing the shirt the back side fitted to the chair to ones backside when sitting in it. I then tied the arms in a lose knot to the backside and placed a sprig of ever green pine tree in the pocket. The slip was a quick fix to dressing up the table in a fun way of more whites. I love that it appears that the slips of plaids look to be sewn up pillowcase style out of plaid blanket throws and slipped down over the chairs backs.
    I may do this this year, and be prep aired for next Christmas. I could even make a big pocket on the back side and place stocking stuffer gifts in the pockets for guest seated in there chair.

    See you soon, and truly all the inspiring beauty you inspire.
    Have I missed a post of your beautiful daughters home, decorated for Christmas?
    I am going back to see if I have missed more inspiration here :))
