Style Your Holiday Table in Only 5 Minutes

Design Inspiration How-To

Sweet & Simple Citrus Table copyI have to honestly say that everything I know about decorating a table for a special meal or holiday I learned from my Aunt Mim. She always said, “It’s the details that make it special.”

The moment we walked into her home, we felt the magic of Mim! The yummy aromas coming from the kitchen, decorations everywhere you looked, and that table! SHE was the original “Martha Stewart”, only better, in my opinion.

Everything was handmade and you knew she spent hours coming up with her nut cups, folded napkin designs and centerpieces. She’d often have a name plate to make you feel extra special and considered.
