Mr. Decor will celebrate his birthday on December the 9th. From early on in our marriage I always tried to create a special table in his honor that also blended in with the Christmas decor.
Mr. Decor loves sweets and he is of course my sweetheart so this year I set out to create a table that captured those wonderful qualities.
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.
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.
Old fashioned Christmas candy was placed in various glass containers and grouped together for a yummy centerpiece.
