What a wonderful time of year! The beginning of the month is when we usually pull out all of the Christmas decorations. This year we wanted to inspire and encourage you to create your own! In this blog, we will show you a step by step on how to create a simple yet professional looking Christmas table garland, and additional things to create the best holiday table. Made out of fresh greenery from your local floral shop or farmers market, you don’t need to be a professional to create this!
What you will need:
-Greenery from your local floral shop or farmers market. (We used seeded eucalyptus and baby eucalyptus)
-Light up Ornaments for the center
-Christmas themed name cards
-Gold colored plates
Step 1) Start by laying out your seeded eucalyptus or other greenery you might have purchased. Let the bottom of the steam go towards the center of the table.
Step 2) Cut off stems of baby eucalyptus or second greenery option.
Step 3) Layer the greenery’s together creating a blend of the two.
Repeat moving downwards toward the center of the table.
Step 4) Begin a new layer now going the opposite direction, plan to meet the two at the center of the table.
Step 5) Make sure the bottom of your steams are clean and have an even cut. Cut off any excess greenery that makes it look too full.
Step 6) Continue adding additional greenery to your liking.
Step 7) Time to add your center piece! Light up ornaments. Found at most craft stores around this time of year.
Place this strand of ornaments in the center.
Step 8) Make sure ornaments lay where you can see them. Tuck the battery pack underneath.
Step 9) Add a few clear candles to add some light. (fake or real both look great!)
Time to add colored ornaments!
Step 10) Add your mini ordaments every couple inches, alternation colors.
Step 11) Now add your pretty plates of choice! We chose gold ones.
Step 12) One last step for an added final touch, cute Christmas name cards! Use these when you have guests over for a special dinner to make them feel extra welcomed.
Don’t forget sparkling cider, YUM.
