starry night

hello..how are you all?
i'd like to say i'm all organised for christmas but i haven't done much at all apart from lots of decorating.
keeping it simple and using what we already have i decorated the outdoor table on our deck for christmas night or anytime.. an unironed white sheet as a tablecloth,  a length of burlap torn at the edges for a table runner, lots of white, seashells, a touch silver with fairy lights and candlelight. i can't get enough of fairy lights ,one of the best things about christmas, don't you think?







keep calm & have a good week!

  4. Hi Cheryl
    the table setting looks beautiful. I love fairy lights too. we actually enjoy them all year round out on our patio. we have them strung from one side to the other, ah la the garden in my favourite tv series, Parenthood. It brings me joy every night when i turn them on, and gives the whole area the most lovely ambience.
    I say forget xmas and just, keep calm and carry on decorating!!!! have a happy week. Jane x

  8. Oh SO pretty! Your tablesetting is just gorgeous. I love the idea you have a photo of of the mug turned upside down to elevate the plate and add height to the vignette.
