A Bit of Bling for your Christmas Table

 *This post is part of the December promotion fortnight.
 Remember to leave a comment to be entered in the giveaway.*

I hope you're nicely prepared for the festivities.
I'm getting there, I think!
I wanted to show and share something a bit different so
 I thought of things I used to do in the early days of my crafting.
This time of year particularly I always made gifts and decorative bits and pieces and loved making the Christmas table pretty.
So I'm sharing today some very simple pieces that add decorative and personal touches
 to make your guests feel extra special.

A place name card with added "bling"........
A small folded white card the front covered with Hobby House Stripe Christmas paper.
A scrap of card with a brush of Adirondack in Stonewashed, name added with silver pen. 
A strip cut from Silver Diamond Mesh then glued on to the card adds the"bling" factor.

Matching "bling" napkin ring...........
A piece cut from the same Hobby House paper gently curved into shape, I use a wooden spoon handle to start the curve off. The end is stuck with double sided tape on the inside overlap edge.
Adding more bling.

A small table gift to take away, I've lit mine for effect.........
This could easily be a small decorated box or bag containing after dinner mints if you wanted.
I cut a further strip of paper to size for this little glass tea light holder and used double sided tape directly on the glass to fix in place befor adding the length of bling.

Hopefully this might inspire you for your festive table settings.
Thank you for stopping by today and good luck with the "giveaway"
My next posting here will be scheduled for Christmas Day as I won't be here posting in person.
So I'll wish you all the best and a Happy, Healthy New Year.
