Centerpiece on the Cheap

I have a confession.


I put up our Christmas trees and then completely loss steam and never decorated our dining room table or mantel. Since I knew I would be hosting a cookie exchange for my Junior League girls last week, I knew I had to come up with an awesome tablescape and fast too. I hate spending a lot of money on holiday/seasonal decor since it's only up for a few weeks. So, I went shopping in our basement.

This is what I came up with-

Last year, I hit up Target's after-holiday sale and got this huge package of ornaments for $2.
I dug out some mercury glass candle holders and crystal candlestick holders and placed some ornaments on top-
I reused the DollarTree candle holder/vases from my Fall tablescape and filled them up with various ornaments-
The large box of silver goodness also came with these awesome metal icicles-
Aren't they interesting? Very modern and chic.
So, I grabbed some branches from our yard and strung away-

Here's the finished room-

I love how it came out. It doesn't get any better than $0 and just mere minutes of time.
Happy Holiday week everyone! love, S
