If you've hung around the blog for any time at all then you know my fierce love for a pretty tablescape. In my opinion, life is run-of-the-mill enough, so creating little pockets of magic to keep a case of the ordinaries away does my soul good. Plus, I love to love on my people by using my passions and gifts for them, right within the walls of our own home.
Last year I created a last-minute fancy table and it made the air feel different, special somehow. This year I planned ahead, pulling things from around the house and buying a new strand of lights from Hobby Lobby (40% off) to give the table a glow.
We've ended up leaving the table right in front of the wood-burning fireplace the whole week long. Even though we're celebrating in the same house we have every single year for the past four years, dressing up the table a bit made it feel like a vacation within our own home. I hope you'll feel a spark of inspiration to make some magic within your home this week too.
The most special part of this light-filled table?
The ones around it.
