Today a lot of people will be preparing their tables for the big event, the Christmas dinner.
Although there are lots of table decorations in the stores, its so easy to bring some festive atmosphere to your setting, with simple foliage from the garden or your local florist.
I like to use herbs and scented branches from plants in the garden such as Rosemary, bay and eucalyptus which add another dimension to the table.
Here are some super simple ideas that will take no time at all, because lets face it, by this stage of the game, we usually have no time at all!
Tiny wreaths of Rosemary tied with twine can be placed on each plate at the table or used to hold napkins
Cinnamon sticks are the smell of Christmas
