Since I had a $20 budget I set out to one of the discount dollar stores for inspiration. I found it in the candy, ribbon and ornament aisles.
I tied a candy themed ornament onto the back of each chair with a bit of tulle I had on hand. I just love a big frothy bow!
Then I addressed the light fixture that hangs over the table. Thin red ribbon was strung through glittered candy ornaments and tied to the chandelier arms. Additional tulle was also draped to create an erethral effect.
I layered the table itself with a vintage white tablecloth with scalloped edges. The lovely red chargers were also found at the $1 store. They were topped with vintage linen napkins I had found at the thrift store and dyed a festive green. The finishing touch was an antique red transferware plate.
Beautiful ribbon candy was also a great seasonal find and I decided that it would look great captured under glass and tied with a sweet ribbon.
I also used the ribbon candy as place card holders.
Old fashioned Christmas candy was placed in various glass containers and grouped together for a yummy centerpiece.
I love all the soft pinks, greens and yellows!
Of course every dinner party needs a sweet treat for the guests. I found the free peppermint printables on Pinterest from B. Nute Productions.
Be merry and bright!
