Christmas Dinner for friends.
My inspiration for this table was the above Christmas swag. See below for pictures of other swags. I purchased it because I fell in love with the colors. They aren't the typical red and green colors we all usually have for Christmas and it goes really well in my house!
I wanted to create height on the table and knew that I could do that with "something I already own". I finally figured out that I had a tall wrought iron topiary in my garden. I cleaned it all up and spray painted it.
Placed the wrought iron topiary (as seen above) in the middle of the table and then draped the swag on top of it. I then filled the rest of the topiary in with live Christmas clippings from my local tree farm. Added ribbon and that was my centerpiece. I also put some sparkly silver feathers and some white "real" feather's at the top of the topiary to add some whimsy and interest.
I used king size pillowcases for the chair covers in a wonderful gold satin color. (My best friend Suzanne is in setup mode here with me - she's the absolute best ever!!!!)
