Guest Post; DIY Festive Holiday Table Setting

Hi lovelies, Last week I once again got the honors of writing a guest post for Tereza from "Drastic Plastic".  I created a DIY cozy, laid back yet festive table setting post. I also wanted to thank Tereza for writing kind words about me :) Blog on!
First off I started by making a table runner. I discovered that this is one of the easiest things ever to sew. I used a light canvas fabric (use this for hand-cut napkins as well). I find it gives a natural and laid-back feel. Combining this with a sparkly ribbon and you’ve got a good balance between laidback and glam.
Instead of using name tags, make your own personalized wine glass markers that you tie around the stem of the wine/champagne glass. It has a double purpose; wine marker/name place setting.
As a centerpiece use tiny ever greens in terracotta pots. You’ll be able to plant these in your yard after the holidays and enjoy them all year round. As for the lights, I custom made the lights and I am planning on leaving them hanging. It gives a very nice atmosphere.
Finally add some candles, Et Voila!! Your festive, yet laid back table setting is ready to welcome your guests! Hope you enjoyed my DIY post! XO
