About this time, our attention is starting focus on what will be served on Christmas Day and how we want to lay out the table.

Beautiful china, special linen napkins and of course a simple but elegant centerpiece:

I think the most beautiful table settings are those that use fresh greenery:

This arrangement is pretty, but where will you put the food?:

Some people are so creative:

Sandra Lee never disappoints when making an original table setting:

Do you dress up your table? I do, but when it is time to bring out the food I always remove the centerpiece and replace it with food. The centerpiece is taken off and put aside. I figure for anyone to be able to leave the centerpieces on the table during dinner, they must have a butler serving them on the side!

Decorating With Boxwood

Tuesday, November 27th, 2012

This past Fall Season was so busy for me, I really did not decorate too much for Autumn or Thanksgiving. The day after a quiet Thanksgiving this year, I was ready to go decorate something! Let the Christmas decorating begin!

Have you ever worked with boxwood when making floral arrangements? I think it is the prettiest green branch out there! I would buy the boxwood decorated Christmas trees more often at the florist’s, but they are very expensive- on average $100.00 per tree. But they are so beautiful!:

I gave instructions here on making your own boxwood,evergreen and pine wreath. It came out beautifully and lasted into January:

This picture below is what inspired me to try filling small containers with boxwood branches:

Isn’t it soooo pretty?

This year I found boxwood branches sold in bunches at Shaw’s Supermarket for only six dollars. So I collected my stuff together and choose my container:

Next fill the bottom of the container with floral oasis soaked for at least an hour in water for fresh flower arranging. Cut the stems to desired height and fill in with branches until you achieve a look you like:

I could decorate it with little balls and ribbon if I choose, but for now I like how it looks:

I found them very easy to make. A tip I found useful was a that good place to start putting the branches in is the middle of the container first:

Then fill around until you achieve the fullness you are happy with:

Simple and beautiful. They will last for a long time into the season if taken care of and watered. Have you worked with boxwood branches this year? Can you make a boxwood decorated tree like you find at the florists? I tried one years ago in a class and I remember it being the ugliest in the class. haha I will have to give it a try again someday.

Thanks!
