A warm Christmas welcome to my Red Couch.
I love the old "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" movie. Maybe it reminds me of my father at Christmas. He loved the Grinch movie and he loved ornaments. Each year, he would buy a new ornament or two. They were the ornate shaped glass ornaments. He would hand out these delicate ornaments to us as we decorated the tree. In the movie, the Grinch even took the one remaining ornament on the tree.
I began the tablescape with simple dishes. The red glass ornaments are in a cupcake holder. I thought that it was appropriate that part of the centerpiece should include ornaments. The Grinch couldn't even leave one ornament in Whoville.
I made the yarn balls for a party for my Activity Day Girls (church). I thought they looked fun and festive on this Grinch table.
Here's a close-up of the yarn ball. Before they dried, I sprinkled glitter on them. Our home has sparkled this holiday season because of the glitter on these balls!
I love this fun and bright colored pitcher. I have two of them. I bought three of them last year -- one for myself, one for my mother-in-law Geniel and one for a gift exchange at a family party. The young niece who received this pitcher, preferred the I-tunes gift card that I received, so we swapped.
The whimsical cake server seems to fit into this theme. I made the ornaments out of ice cream, sprinkled with nonpareils and topped with a Reese's peanut butter cup. I used holiday trimmings for the ornament ring; you could use red string licorice; I couldn't find it in my area. They were fun to make and eat.
I dolled up this one with more non-pareils. I have to tell you that I didn't know how to spell non-pareils -- and I WAS the winner of my third grade class spelling bee!
Here's a sideview of the table.
Oops the Grinch left this fun hat!
I hope you have the Merriest Christmas!
