The Glam Woodsy Table

by Shelly

One of my very favorite things to do is entertain!  Having grown up in a single parent household, holidays were often pretty subdued and quiet.  My side of the family is fairly small and it was just mom and I in my home. So, now that I have a family of my own and a pretty large inlaw family….I love to have everyone over for large meals where I get to overfeed everyone and do my best Martha Stewart impression!  Christmas is my Superbowl…I never do the same meal twice and often try out a whole new menu on the family. My husband says we should have a traditional meal that is the same every year. But what fun is that!?

Well with the new holiday menu each year, I also feel compelled to have a new tablescape.  Cause why would I do the same table each year right? Haha!  I’m just beginning to sort out the menu for this years’ extravaganza.  I’m feeling a little rustic and simple this year. This table would fit the bill quite nicely.  But this is just one of a few ideas I have going round in my head. Stay tuned the rest of the month for more ideas!
