Display Tables and Seasonal Decorating

by Nikki Willhite

Hey....where'd the candy go?

 

Every year Christmas rolls around. Almost everyone is prepared for Christmas with ornaments and other decorations stored in their home.

 

However, Christmas is not the only holiday that rolls around each year.  Each season brings different things to celebrate.

 

- In Spring we celebrate Easter and the renewal of the earth, along with Mother's Day.

 

- Summer brings the 4th of July to the United States, Father's Day and lots of sun and water activities.

 

- Autumn brings Thanksgiving, and a refreshing chill in the air.  We also get to enjoy the beautiful colors of Autumn as the leaves change.

 

- At the end of the year is winter, with Christmas, snow and picture postcard scenery.

 

These are some of the major holidays and times of year that most of us  celebrate.  Each family has their own special birthdays, anniversaries, and other special occasions.

 

I like to bring a little display into my home to celebrate these special occasions. I do this with a display table. My display table is nothing more than a table that is in my entry hall, pictured above.  On this table I usually have a table runner that I have made, and some decorations to reflect the season.

 

I am lucky that I have grandchildren nearby, so the display usually features some candy, or other items I think the children might enjoy. My table is very small, so it doesn't take much than one or two small decorations to get the effect I want without spending much money.

 

Some people change the wreaths on their font door to reflect the seasons. Display tables are a  fun, frugal  way to bring the seasons and special occasions into your home.

 

Whatever you do, it is a  way to establish family traditions, and make your home more fun.
