Got my Martha on!

Yeah, that's
I saw a craft the other day on Martha and I was very inspired.
This is a post from last year that I did not happen to share with many parties.
So I thought today I would share with Layla's table scape holiday party.
Thank you Layla!
The Lettered Cottage
Here is my inspiration....thanks Martha! 
They are just cute little place card settings, made with sticks.
 How easy and cute!

Real Holly and holly berries from our tree outside

My very good German friend was moving back to Germany, before she left she gave me this table cover.

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night.....

Here are where some of my table items came from:
Colored chargers: World Market
Snow flake glasses:  Dollar tree last year
China was given to me
Red Mercury glass vase: Marshalls this year $10.00
Three silver votive snow flake candles: Bath and Body works with 10.00 coupon
Today {11-30-10} I am sharing with Centsational girl. She is having a Holiday table scape contest, and I thought why not, I would LOVE a homegoods gift card...that is my all time favorite place to shop!
  This was last years table scape, however, I thought it is a Christmas holiday one, and one of my favs.
Thanks Kate!

Gorgeous!!!! I saw the table cloth and went mentally translated Christmas tablecloth and then had the moment of OH! That was in German! I love being able to speak a different language! Tom and I speak German when we don't want Jemma to know what is going on now that Miss Thang is spelling and sounding out!!!

You rocked it! I love the name plates, but I must say... the boys napping is just precious!
