Easy Festive Votives with Plaid and Boxwood

Hi Everyone, I hope you're having a wonderful weekend.
 Getting the Christmas decorating in hand, shopping,
making plans for this busy time of year...
 and enjoying your loved one's companionship.

We spent most of the day hanging prints, unpacking a few boxes,
and generally trying to get the lower level in order for family Christmas.
It takes me a while to decide where prints need to go.
I don't want to overdo it, but I want it to look homey and comfortable,
Like someone actually LIVES here.

...So time got away from me.
And before I knew it the light was drifting away.
My plan was to share the Dining Room Table Vignette,
but the pics were grainy and dark.
So I improvised...

I had purchased three of these larger votive glass cups
 to use on the mantle display,
but they were lost in the arrangement.
  I decided to dress them up a little with Plaid Ribbon
 and a little sprig of Fresh Boxwood.

 They were super easy, just some wired ribbon, with Boxwood added.
I'm missing my massive Holly Bushes, so Boxwood will do.

These would be so pretty at each place setting,
 with any Holiday Ribbon 
for an extra bit of Celebration at a Candlelight Christmas Dinner.

They came to the rescue since it was getting dark,
 and added a special glow to the table vignette.

I've had this little English Kensington teapot, depicting a hunt scene for years.
I think it's perfect with some transferware cups and saucers with the Tartan Plaid.

So here's to an impromptu Tea,
with a little Holiday mood lighting!
