Cranberry Christmas Tablescape

 Cranberry Christmas Tablescape set for my family. This year we have the honor of sharing Christmas at my Mother's home so I have set this 'before Christmas' scape for my family. Tablescaping is such a wonderful way to bless your family with beauty. It gives an ordinary dinner special meaning. And it can be done inexpensively with second hand pieces and a little creativity.

Cranberries and a candle on a decorative glass plate.

A candle lit spinning centerpiece.

A closer look at the centerpiece, top level.

The next two levels are shepherds with sheep.

And a creche with wise men at the bottom level.

Surrounded by a lovely wreath gifted by my thoughtful mom 'in love'.

A snowflake Christmas ornament as a coaster.

Sparkling cranberry cider to go with the meal.

Once the candles are lit and the cider pored I set the decorative top plate to the side and the napkin on top of the plate before calling everyone to the table.

The decorative plate now becomes part of the table decor.

Merry Cranberry Christmas

What a gorgeous table! I have the same candle spinner thing and never thought to use it as a centerpiece! I left it in the box downstairs! I guess I will have to dig it out!
