What are you doing this year for Christmas?
have you started even thinking about table layouts yet?
Well, if you have been following Marley & Lockyer for a while, you would know that I am crazy for this season. This year it will be even more magical than most as my dear Mum and Dad fly in tomorrow morning for nearly 5 weeks and I also get to spend it with my eldest Sister, Caroline and her cute little baby, Alex as well as a dear, dear family Friend, Glenn. All of this along with our normal family gathering of Mics wonderful Mum and Dad, Sister/Partner and Brother….and of course Mic and our little boys of course!
So, my planning has been happening any spare minute I have (which is not a lot at the moment, let me tell you). I have thought if we have a wonderful sunny Christmas day (it is about to hit Summer here in Australia), we will have our dinner under our stunning Sycamore tree, filled with tea lights and fairy lights. It probably won’t be anywhere near as flash as this image, but it helps to look at it and imagine ;0)
I was thinking of wrapping some old jam jars or Mason jars with old book pages like this image and tie with one of my tags. A whole grouping down the center of the table would look perfect!
You can see what it would look like here with one of my textured snowflake tags
hanging on the old jars. I love this look.
Last year, I filled the jars up with battery operated bud lights and put the zinc lids on, pairing them with French Zinc flower buckets, wreaths I made with Twisted Willow and pairing them with glass etched baubles. They turned out brilliantly.
not sure what we are eating yet….but at least the tables are sorted ;0)
It is utter chaos here right now
something major is about to happen and I can’t wait to reveal to you all!!!!
Have a wonderful week, I will ;0)))))
