Christmas Table Copy Cat

Debbiedoo's is having a magazine copy cat party.  Here are a couple of pictures of what I copied.  They are from BHG Christmas Ideas Magazine.

I chose this because I had everything except the apples.   I had some leftover burlap that I cut in strips and fringed for the table runners.  I had the round mats and red and white dishes.  I used my champagne flutes and a vase with one of my dried hydrangeas.  The greenery I cut from my garden.

 I didn't have any grapevine, so I used red dogwood branches around the place setting.

Then I changed out the centerpiece with a cloche and this is what the table looks like.

I think I like this better.  What do you think?

I am joining the Magazine Copy Cat Challenge  at Debbiedoo's
and the Cloche Party at A Stroll Thru Life

I love these parties.  Thanks Debbie and Marty for hosting.  Stop on over and see all the creative ideas you can find on these sites.

Have a great week.

What a nice table setting. I guess I should look in magazines for more inspiration. Your table came out so lovely and the best part is you already had everything.
