Christmas Table Decorations


I was just getting my Christmas table decorations sorted when I thought I would do a little display with them until I need them. This year I am having black and silver - never before have I had black Christmas crackers but I guess there is a first time for everything! I really wanted to include the crackers as they are black with beautiful silver scribe writing on them - just stunning - but I couldn't fit them under my cloche so they will have to wait til the Christmas table is created.


My daughter made little black Christmas shaped place cards and attached them to tiny silver baubles with ribbon then wrote our names on in silver and they are so cute - you may be able to pick out the one she has done for Nana if you look carefully. I love the strands of silver beads just draped any old how - they look a bit like the bubbles along the waters edge to me. 



I am just about to start on the Christmas tree - this is usually done on the 1st of December but this week has been a bit hectic so by tonight I hope it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here.......

Your cloches are so pretty. Silver is a beautiful color for the holiday. I love the little black ribbon on the silver ornament. So very elegant.

Oh your black and silver is beautiful. I have never done a black tree or decorations either, but it sounds so elegant. I love the balls in the cloche and the beads are so pretty. The black angels with the names written in silver is such a pretty idea for place cards. Thanks you so much for joining the party. This is just lovely. Hugs, Marty
