How To Make a Table Decoration for Christmas

Pine Tree Paper Sculptures
It's the time of year I begin to think about setting the perfect table for Christmas on a budget! You can create a set of paper Christmas trees just like the ones shown above in 8 easy steps. Just follow my directions below and you'll end up with a fab table for a fab time of the year!!

I enjoy scouring flea markets, garage sales, and thrift shops to find just the right set of dinnerware for the season.  Starring on our table this year is a set of J&G Meakin dinnerware in the Renaissance pattern. J&G Meakin was one of the companies from the Staffordshire collective of shops in England. This village in England was comprised primarily of potters who produced dishes for well over 200 years. J&G Meakin was founded in 1851 by James Meakin and his two sons, James and George. I was able to pair this great dinnerware set with gold tone flatware from Korea and a set of stunning set of star cut crystal glassware. The little paper Christmas pine trees finished the table off for a festive look.

Wishing you all a happy and wonderful Christmas!
