Using my Table Inspiration, I finally have put together a tablescape that I'm excited to host our first family Christmas event of 2010 with tomorrow.

I used some thrifty-ness coupled with a little bit of twine and some DIY book page inspiration and wa-la, this is what I've come up with:
 Okay, it wasn't actually snowing on my cute candles, {but I thought it would be fun to pretend}.
 A little dollar store glitter snowflake.  Perf.
 Transformation from plain candles to perfect centerpiece.  Using a little Mod Podge (read online that it wasn't flammable), coupled with some ripped out book pages and wa-la! No tutorial required - these are SO easy.
 Red chargers.  Love.
 Personalized place-settings.  Easy to find your seat!

The menu is non-traditional which sort of excites me even more.  This family has opted for a Taco Extravaganza.  Sort of doesn't go with my cute table, but who cares - something has to feel Christmasy. :) 

Do you have a typical Christmas meal?  Or does your family do some sort of fun non-traditional twist?

    DIYing it wasn't that took a lot of patience and time...the only thing I can't figure out yet is the navigation buttons...
