I love having our home decorated for Christmas. It is so cheerful, cozy, and puts me in a festive mood! However, knowing that these Christmas pieces are only out for a short time, sometimes makes it hard to justify spending a fortune on new decor. We are also limited on storage space in our apartment, so I decided to dream up a holiday table setting using pieces we already had, and inexpensive disposable items.
I love how festive it turned out, and clean up will be easy! I started with a Kraft paper table cloth. Kraft paper is so versatile, you can adapt it to your style, color palette, and occasion. I used plenty painter's tape and glue dots to secure the paper down and protect the table.
My friend and I wove placemats from scrapbook paper, another activity little ones can help with. I love the quilted look with all the sweet holiday patterns! Walmart is now carrying paper straws in the party section, and I picked up this little pointsettia at the grocery store for under $5!
Add simple name plates, and scatter some Christmas candy, and you have a child friendly, no fuss, welcoming Christmas table ready to party! You can find the tutorial for our marbled pine cone place card holders here, cranberry appetizer recipes here, and holiday punch here.
We are heading to visit my family for Christmas, so we'll save this look for our New Year's festivities! Are you hosting Christmas this year or travelling?
