Can you believe Christmas is getting so close!
 Have I told you I will be hosting our traditional family Christmas party NEXT weekend with a minimum of
 50 people?
Have I started prepping?
Somehow it all comes together.
(fingers crossed)
This year I decided to to mimic our mantel with lots of greens mixed with a little bling for our dining room table. 

I used the layer affect by adding my handmade runner, followed by green garland wrapped in ribbon and snowflakes. I finished it off with my epson salt ornaments, faux snow and dollar store ornaments.

I couldn’t just stop at the table and decided to decorate the light fixture.

The crystals were leftover from the light that I received from a dear friend who gave me her mother’s chandelier which I restored.
I better stop there, I need to have a few surprises for our home tour this Friday!
