I hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving with family and friends. We enjoyed our day, although I’ll admit that I’m a bit exhausted after yesterday’s festivities. Normally, I shop the day after Thanksgiving. But this year, I was able to do all my shopping last night from the comfort of my own couch. It was pretty awesome.
But, now it’s the countdown towards the second week of Dare to DIY. I was impressed by all the projects last week, so I’m truly looking forward to seeing your tables. Remember, the link-up will go live on Monday morning. Will you dare?
Since I didn’t host Thanksgiving, we are transitioning to Christmas at the Woodwards. I took this challenge with the hope of making our holiday table coordinate with the dining room colors – grey, yellow and turquoise. Particularly importance since the majority of my boxes and boxes of holiday decorations are red. So, this is what I would call an untraditional holiday table.
Although this is very conducive to DIY projects because it is truly impossible to find Christmas items in yellow. Trust me. I’ve looked.
So, my projects were relatively simple to pull together a table. My goals were:
- To pull in the colors from the dining room and not compete with them.
- To use my pretty blue Ball jars.
- To spend little (or no) money.
- To make the table look fun and not too formal.
