Do you have a set of vintage china you’ve debated on bringing out this holiday season? If so, I encourage you to dust if off and put it on display. This pine cone embellished set was found at an estate sale and given to me. Despite not having a personal history of eating off it since “as long as I can remember” it goes great with the cabin and still evokes memories of times gone by. It so classic, just like many of the ornaments we pull out year after year that remind us of our youth. After all, aren’t the best ornaments the ones we (or our children) made in grade school and still have fingerprints imprinted in the glue? So don’t hesitate to bring out the old china (just clean off any fingerprints)!
With all the furniture graphics I’ve been pondering over using this year, one graphic has been consistently in the back of my mind. I came across this deer graphic on The Graphics Fairy and fell in love with it. I’v been trying to think of a way to use it this holiday and decided to make some table place cards. I printed the cards on photo paper using pre-cut 4×6 photo paper. The font is Edwardian Script ITC size 72pt. I resized the graphic and added a border and then scaled it down when I printed it. Depending on how large you want your card will depend how far you scale your printing. Here’s the template close up. I placed the cards in a pine cone to hold them.
Here’s a few pictures of the dinnerware setting. I also couldn’t resist showing off the fabulous bronze deer candle holder. I hope your dinner table not only looks great but is bountiful and nourishing this holiday! Cheers!
