2. Christmas Place Settings

Ever since I can remember, my Mum would always put in so much time and effort into her ‘Christmas table’ on the big day. I come from a small family, so there would rarely be many more than 4 of us around the table but that never stopped Mum from pulling out all the stops with handmade floral arrangements/garlands, beautiful napkin displays and posh crackers to name but a few things that she would put so much time, love and thought into. As a result, to this day, I absolutely love a Christmas table and all of the many personal details that can be included on them.

One such detail is name place settings for your guests (ideal especially if you do have a larger gathering and what to try and maintain a little order over who sits where and with whom!) So here is a set I have made in a slightly less ‘traditional’ colour palette using the Tonic Stamp Club Set ‘Christmas Rose’.
