It’s fun to give kids their own special holiday table, where everything is their size, and makes them feel extra special. We set up our table in front of a large chalkboard, and added a litte container of chalk for kids to use through out the dinner.
A children’s table and chair set were decorated for the holidays with small wreaths tied onto the chair backs with some ribbon.
We covered the table with a fun red and white cloth, made out of a new twin size bedsheet. When it comes to decorating be creative, and think outside of the box. We used cream plates, and added fun snowmen mugs, in keeping with our theme. The cute gingerbread cookies are picked up from the bakery, and look so cute peeking out of the mugs.
Another tasty treat, are the Christmas candies in tiny snowman pails. These also make a fun take-home favour at the end of the meal.
We created a really fun centre-piece with some of the amazing snowmen from La Petite Fleur. The salt and pepper shakers are so much fun. I especially love the snowmen serving dishes, and spreader, complete with wire arms. Wouldn’t this be fun for any holiday entertaining with dips, or nuts. Or for the kids, filled with more candy!
The large white felt snowmen are beautiful. They add some height to the table, and beautiful texture with the warm, soft felt, the twig like arms, and the detail of the carrot nose! And the beauty of all these pieces is that they are great at Christmas, but can be used all winter as well.
The most fun aspect of this sweet kids table is the snowman flower arrangement. It adds a great bit of whimsy, and was really easy to create.
Heather, and her little helper started with a small galvanized pail, and added wet floral foam. The base of greens is a combination of variegated boxwood, oregonia, and cedar.
After the base was finished, we added one large white gerbra daisy.
Our idea was to turn the daisy into a snowman, and every snowman needs a carrot nose! A great little tip from Heather to help get the wire through the hard carrot, is to heat the wire first with a lighter.
Then we trimmed down the carrot to a nose shape, and slid the wire into the gerbra daisy.
The eyes are made of mini green kermit mums, with black stick pins holding them into the gerbra daisy. The Mouth is simple red berries. We used a tiny felt Santa hat as the finishing touch.
I love how the table turned out, and all the snowman details. All the decor pieces, plates, mugs, and flowers are available at La Petite Fleur. I hope this inspires you to create something fun and playful and special for your children this holiday season.
