A patched together lifestyle of thrift and charm...

A Christmas Dinner Table & A Napkin Fold...

If you build it - they will come right?  Guess we'll see...  
Table is partially set and ready for guests in a few hours...

What's great about this time of year is I can keep the centerpiece
 pretty much in tact through the season and just make minimal
 changes with each event...

My table needs to be a little bigger this time around - 
so I added some extra tea light holders.  One is stacked on vintage
 twill ribbon to help vary the heights.  I used ribbon because it was
 the only thing I could find that I already had on hand that was 
in the right scale and color.  I threw in some fresh greens too - 
cause they were just sitting there from something else so why not...

On a house tour this year - I was introduced to the 'tree' napkin fold.  
So a little research yielded a simple enough tutorial to duplicate it.
  Never mind that not all my napkins are the same fabric.  
Who wants to be all 'matchy, matchy' anyway?

Here's looking forward to a fun evening of fellowship with 
folks we've never hosted before.

And isn't that part of the joy of Christmas?  
Opening our hearts and homes to others.  
Enjoy your weekend readers.  
And if it includes friends - all the better!  ~Joyce

I love, love, love your sweet decorations. How smart to use what you have on hand. The napkins are perfect too and using different fabrics makes it even better. I hope your dinner was a wonderful one of food and fellowship. Too bad we don't live closer, I would love to have you for a meal in our home.

Merry Christmas! I love the idea of sheet music at the plate settings. Good idea that I will be borrowing in the future.
