Elegant Christmas Table Setting- On a Budget
There is nothing more beautiful then a table that is set and decorated at anytime of the year. It is one of the things that we do on every photo shoot is ensure that the tables are beautifully set. Sometimes it looks like it cost a fortune to set the table, but it doesn't have to cost a fortune. I have posted some beautiful tables that utilized everyday home and decor items.
The table above is just tea towels and candles. You can spray paint a square piece of cardboard gold to have a beautiful accent underneath the plates.
Faux fruit can be a little on the pricey side and then you have to store them away. Why not buy some silver and gold spray paint and go to town on real fruit?
Extra christmas tree ornaments? Combine them with some fruit for a lovely centerpiece.
Christmas crackers are often pricey and the gifts are cheesy. Why not save gift opening until dinner and place a beautifully wrapped gift on everyone's plate. Of course this won't work for playstations and barbie dream houses...
Drap a few extra decorations with ribbon on the back of each chair and voila you have some extra christmas spirit. Happy Holidays!
