Hi, we are Danielle (Food Love and Happiness) and Nelly (Brown Girl Decor Blog) thank you for coming back to our final week of our #NORULESCHRISTMAS series. For the past few weeks, we have been sharing a festive recipe and a fun DIY project each week. Why the name no rules Christmas? Well, we are breaking the rules of the traditional sit-down Christmas feast and serving dessert first.
Today is all about setting an easy holiday table using kraft paper as a tablecloth. Danielle is sharing her recipe for this delicious raspberry and cranberry pie on her blog.
First, let me fill you in on the fun stuff that Danielle and I have shared over the last few weeks in our #NORULESCHRISTMAS series.
This week’s DIY is another easy fix. I will show you two options for using kraft paper as a tablecloth.
I have this role of kraft paper I use for packaging in my shop. It’s 50 cm wide and perfect to use as a tablecloth. First up I used the kraft paper as a long runner down the middle of my table. I let it go all the way down to the floor and made the edges a little rough by tearing the paper along the edge. You can use a marker to write down the names of the dishes you are serving right on the kraft paper. Handy tip for ya.
I wanted to keep the place settings real simple. So I used our white plates and a lovely piece of eucalyptus on the plate. I put the glasses on my DIY coasters and I threw a few wooden stars that I had in my craft stash around the table. I also bought some stylised porcelain trees and that wooden tree from Sostrene Grene to display on the table. My DIY marble tray with the coral pink edge is sitting pretty in the middle of the table waiting to be host to a delicious pie.
For the second setting, I used the kraft paper as 3 shorter runners that cover the width of the table. This allows you to put the plates right on the runner. This way the children can do some drawing on the paper to keep themselves occupied during the meal.
