Rustic Log Home Christmas Table Using Natural Elements

Rustic Log Home Christmas Table Using Natural ElementsWhile we had a nice sunny day I took a walk outside, gave the cedar trees a trim, gathered a few pinecones and went to work setting a simple Christmas table. We’ve been so busy around our house this Christmas season, so busy in fact I still haven’t purchased a tree, that I wanted something on the table that didn’t take long to create.

We seldom see the sun in these parts once December hits, but fortunately on this day it was beautiful outside and the yellow table setting just made it all shine.

Oh boy that’s just the way I’ve been liking it. I think with the kids grown I don’t feel the need to decorate to the hilt, and I like things that can be carried throughout winter. That’s why pinecones and snowflakes are good choices. I don’t feel the need to undecorate so quickly.
