My Last Years Christmas Tablescape 

So I wanted to share with you all my tablescape that I did last Christmas.  I will probably keep the same set up this year, because it worked so well.

I decided to use my table in my formal dining room as the centerpiece for the cocktail party.  I used  shiny linen fabric and several Christmas lights to create a dramatic backdrop for the table.  I also incorporated several holiday florals into the table and chandalier to provide a warm and festive feel to the room.   To bring a warm and welcoming feel to the room I used ivory throw pillows as accents for under the table, which included a custom made “Merry Christmas” sign.

As guess arrived I welcomed them to the door with a holiday spritzer which consisted of  equal parts: Ginger Ale, Vodka and Cranberry juice, 1 fresh cranberry and fresh Thyme.
I also made my first attempt at one of my dearest friends recipes…CAKE BALLS!  Oh what an adventure, but I did get through it with her guidance :).  I was happy with how they turned out.  They were not as pretty as the ones she makes, but the sure were a hit with my guest!  I displayed the cake balls in a great find that I found at my local Michaels Art’s n Crafts store.  It  is a beautiful sparkling sleigh.  I was also excited to get it at 1/2 price!!!!
I was also excited to use my new bar set that I picked up at one of my favorite stores (Pier One).  I have been looking at this set for awhile and finally picked it up prior the the holidays!
