Display Tables and Seasonal
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.
