Colonial Christmas Tablescape

I thought I would share pictures of my colonial tablescape that I created on Christmas Eve. I have step by step pictures of how it was slowly "built". It was so much fun to make and it turned out absolutely beautiful!

I started out by making my own glitter candles......

*a little messy at first, but quite a stunning showpiece when they were all finished!

*Put the candles in their place....

*added lots of these....

*to our NEW colonial candle cups....

*Now, bring in the fresh greens....all sorts!

*Start to add some beautiful, slightly sparkled bronze ribbon!

*Adding some fresh fruit, and more of my glittered candles...

*Apples, Pears, Fresh clove studded oranges, and Pineapples....

*All different views of the table.....

Can't wait to do this again next year! It gave such a homey, colonial feel to Christmas.
