I have been busy looking in magazines, Pinterest, blogs, etc. for ideas on what I can build for Cuisine Kathleen's December Christmas Challenge without buying anything. I think I have come up with fairly close copy of Opulent Cottage's 2009 Christmas table. Thank you, Andrea, for doing that gorgeous table I have tried copying...hope it isn't a disappointment! Cabbage leaf plates, red plates, green stems, silver flatware, a sleigh centerpiece. I did add a "runner" for the sled to sit on and a few trees. I couldn't find any printed napkins or little tree plates so I improvised with mini sleighs and tree napkins!
Our weather has been over cast and rainy for the past 4 days so the photos are not very good. I took a few without the overhead light. I am disappointed in how they came out.
After I had already taken pictures, I decided to "make" green trees...a napkin fold! I placed them over the handle of the forks.
This is Andrea of Opulent Cottage's table that I copied...what do you think, did I or didn't I...be honest?
Thank you for taking the time to visit today...hope you will return next time!
