Christmas Table

I love setting the table nice for special occasions - especially Christmas this year, as its the first one we've had at home for a few years. We're usually camping by the Hawkesbury River.
It doesn't have to cost the earth - I like the challenge of looking for alternative ways of doing things while pinching idea's from the glossy mags. (Then I put them back on the shelf!! - I'll be banned from the newsagents sooner or later)

A piece of old lace (read net curtain) plain white tablecloth and a piece of blue & white fabric - Spotlight sales are great for these.

An old teapot and some foil wrapped chocolate hearts & coins, sugared almonds and candy canes complete the setting with some scented candles, and wired -blue -beads (check local $2 shops) wrapped around some napkins.
