I’m always looking for ways to show Beachboy that I actually use all of the dishes I have in boxes. This year, he was sweet enough to let me “adopt” a table for our church’s Christmas party. I’ve no doubt that he knew all along that it would be both messy and time consuming (as I tend to do a lot of thinking out loud…in his ear). Nonetheless, he said, “Sure, honey. Just don’t buy anything.”
That would be great except all of our Christmas dishes are gold, along with NOTHING else we own. That makes finding a centerpiece a bit of a challenge. I scavenged through old boxes of decorations and found that, we did, in fact, only have blue and silver decorations.
So, I called upon my teacher-brain for a cheap backup plan and headed to the backyard armed and dangerous.
Our scrubby tree needed trimming, so I thought, why not?
