Each tablescape was uniquely different. Several tables were set up as if for a sit down dinner. But I wanted to set one up as if I was serving food at a party (since my house isn't large enough to host a sit down dinner).
Disclaimer: Please excuse the quality of the photos. And please excuse the band equipment in the background. My table was set up in the front of the fellowship hall--- and was pushed up against the stage.
A few details:
I covered the round table in burlap and attached magnolia branches using safety pins around the perimeter.
I made 'magnolia trees' for the center using styrofoam cones and pinning on magnolia leaves with straight pins. At first- I misted the trees with a metallic spray paint. But wasn't happy with the result so I redid them and left them natural.
I wanted to keep everything simple--- so I used my pottery from Mississippi (McCarty) and kept to the brown and white scheme.
An upclose detail- moss covered wreaths attached with a pretty ribbon. I took small grapevine wreaths and hotglued moss onto them and attached them with a ribbon to a class canister. All supplies were from Hobby Lobby except candles and canisters were from The Dollar Tree.
And that's it. A simple, budget-friendly tablescape for the holidays. Just thought I would share in case anyone was needing any ideas of how to decorate on a budget for the holidays.
