Christmas Tree

Here is the real tree we have put up in our sun room. The close up is of an angel which I bough for only €2 in Penny's. I also hung some silver snow flakes on the branches closest to her. Below you can see the full tree, I will need to buy some more red tinsel to fill in some of the spaces.

Christmas Table

 I love getting ready for Christmas and setting the table is always my favourite part. In 2008 and 2009 I used a black table cloth and trimmed it with silver.
I used a large glass fish bowl as the center piece, placing a red candle in the center and surrounded it with acorns. Black and silver flowers and silver  foliage on the outside of the bowl really made this display special.

Electric  baubles in black and silver  added a subtle touch of light.
