Donna Hay's Trick for Instant Mini Christmas Tree Place Settings

December 16, 2016

For me, a beautiful Christmas table is understated, with small, thoughtful touches to add a sense of occasion.

The food is the star of the day, after all! Simple candles and tiny glass ornaments decorated with delicate foliage will bring a sense of wonder, beauty and awe to the table. Nothing could be easier than setting the table with water glasses turned upside-down, with a sprig of something from your garden set inside.

Ooooh! I could imagine using little cut branchlets from my Christmas tree, too.
