Christmas DIY

A little drama. But easy and inexpensive.  I think I'd prefer the flowers to be low, but otherwise a great way to add a little sparkle to the holiday fete.

Tasteful and dramatic, yes, but very chilly..I think that spooky blue is unwelcoming!

I actually think the visual effect is great, but who would want to eat dessert with so much fragrance....culinary no no. Even as a true admirer of Jo's grapefruit scent, I think this is a little much.

We used to call this a Williamsburg Blue, and it does actually look great with rich cherry and mahogany woods. I love the hanging ornaments. Patricia, you are right about the floral arrangement , if it were lower, better for conversation and then wouldn't detract from the hanging above.

Oh, no, no scented candles on the table. But never.

I just posted about Jo Malone's inspiration for a DIFFA table in SF done by Jean Larette. Great minds!! I love this table. :)

Katie - I saw it earlier this evening but was too weary from the school fundraiser to even type, "Me, too." I think their print ads look great - and I am a sucker for Orange Blossom.

We hang the Christmas balls from the dining room chandelier using different lengths of ribbon, It's a nice effect and very glittery under candlelight.
