My Christmas Hall Table

I went with whimsical this year 

I picked up the bulb garland at Target last year after the holidays and didn't have a place to put it so I decided to lay it on the table and wrap it around my lamps and glass apothecary jars

I love the look of wrapped presents around the house besides sitting under the tree.
I just wrapped up my books that I normally have sitting on the table here to keep them festive, this is a great cheap decorating idea.

I temporary took my mirror off my mantel and I placed it on the table to reflect the colorful bulb garland and my jars filled with ornaments.

I covered my Vincent Van Gogh print with postal paper, I buy mine at the dollar store.
I added a thick piece of ribbon to cover the seam and jute across to hang some tags and Christmas cards. I used those tiny craft clothespins to hold them on the jute.

I kept it very simple on the table this year, but its also fun and pretty to look at.


I'm pretty much done with the kids for shopping, I have family to finish up and then I need to get started on wrapping, I also cant seem to find the stockings. I'm thinking I might have to whip some up even though I've never made them before. 

We did get the tree up Sunday!! We place the lights on it last night and the kids and I decorated the tree. 
I let them go crazy this year but I did have to go around and move some of the ornaments around after they went to bed, only because 5 ornaments on one branch wasn't working out so well. The dog kept walking by the tree and knocking off a bunch.

I'll be back with a craft project later
