I’ll Have a Blue Christmas

I seem to be having a blue Christmas this year. My table setting is no exception. A blue berry wreath and blue napkins and placemats really stand out against the dark wood of my kitchen table. I’ve had this wreath for years. Typically this wreath goes on my front door for springtime, but it got pulled out a little bit early (or late?) this year.

The wreath came from the pre-incarceration Martha Stewart collection at K-mart. Does that tell you how old it is? Is Martha Stewart stuff even AT K-mart anymore? Is K-Mart even at K-mart anymore? All of the ones around me have gone out of business. Man, I miss K-mart.

Every bit of my table setting (down to the napkin ring) came from Pier One many years ago. I used to be a bit obsessed with P1 stuff. Since I don’t have any Spode-iopiedopalicious Christmas china I’ll just stick with my old standby. Go on and marinate on that for a minute. Outkast, anyone?

The centerpiece is simple- take a wreath, lay it flat in center of table, stack a plate on top, arrange some lanterns in a circle around a little vase, toss on some Christmas ornaments and reindeer moss, call it a day.

I’m in a K.I.S.S. kinda of mood with my decorating this year.

I also seem to have an obsession for wreaths. I’m using them EVERYWHERE right now. I even put tiny wreaths inside my bigger wreaths.

And hey look! There’s some red berries! I guess I do have a little bit of tradition left in me this year after all.
