Burlap and Green Holiday Table

Here's my super cheap, super easy holiday table...


I used a scrap piece of burlap for a makeshift runner...


The 18" wreaths were on sale at Michaels last week for $2.49...


The candles came from Pier 1 and if I tell you how much they cost Mr. T will make me take them back...


The water goblets are from Tuesday Morning...


The plates are from the Dollar Tree...


And the monogrammed napkins I found on clearance at Steinmart...


I have a super-allergic to anything green Smurf. A few years ago we made the switch to artificial, which has kept him healthier, but has me decorating with fake greenery (not my favorite). This year, I snipped a few pieces of boxwood and tucked them into the wreaths to break them up a just a little...let the sneezing begin...

simple and yes...classic is a good word:)
love that you tucked the boxwood in there.
I have a kiddo with allergies too just grateful it isn't to greenery:)

Your table is perfect. Just what I like. It looks great but not too fussy.

Every touch is PERFECT! You did amazing! Looks Potterybarnish and the price is PERFECT! Great Job! I especially love the boxwood accent! I meant to make a boxwood wreath this Christmas, but time is passing way too quickly! Glad you linked up at my Tablescape Party!! And excited to be your newest follower! I'd love it if you returned the "love!"
