Favorite Traditions

I chose to include some of my favorite traditions. First, the table.

Growing up, we spent lots of time with my English grandparents. My Grandma was amazing at putting together very proper meals, with all the dishes that go with it. I set up a place setting complete with salad plate, dessert bowl, dessert silverware, and teacup. I don’t know how many meals I’ve eaten at a setting like this, but it always brings back the love and thought that went into those dinners.

Part of these meals included traditional plum pudding at Christmas, which was made in advance and aged. SO yummy! I was excited to see there was a mini one available!

English Trifle is another favorite.
This one is really hard to show because the cute bowl is so shiny it reflects in photos. I made the trifle layers by first adding green glitter glue to the bottom of the bowl. Once that dried, I used tiny pieces of white styrofoam for ladies fingers. I wanted the top layer to be red but not leak down and obscure the ladies fingers so I cut small circle of plastic to prevent the problem then used layers of red fingernail polish for the top. Tiny pieces of white styrofoam top it off.

Gingerbread houses are such a fun tradition! I love this tiny gingerbread house and wanted to have it look like a work in progress. I made the little frosting bag using the corner of a plastic sandwich bag with some glue inside. I secured it with the metal from a twist tie then added the bakers twine. I dipped the end in silver paint to make the tip. I also added some red beads to the mini crystal bowl.

Christmas Tree
I’ve always loved decorating Christmas trees! I love seeing the ornaments and remembering the different memories that come with each one. Every year, my mom would get or make an ornament for us and write the year on it. Each year, each child would take out their ornament box and add theirs to the tree. I loved having ornaments of my very own that could add to the overall beauty of the tree.

This darling mini tree came decorated but I wanted to add a few personal touches. First, I added fairy lights and the little red garland, then I made some green balls using short pieces of pipe cleaner. Tiny snowballs finished it off. We have many handmade ornaments on our tree each year so I wanted some here too.

 I love the tiny ornaments and bows that were already on the tree. SO cute!

For the tree skirt, I cut a piece of felt in a circle with a cut to the middle then used the wrong end of a paintbrush dipped in red paint to make the edging.

One tradition has always been part of my life is reading the Christmas story on Christmas Eve. I remember all the kids crowding around my Grandpa to hear him read.

I added a mini nativity to the top of the fireplace with a runner made of a tiny piece of fabric. I added the red bead garland and sticks glued together for the fire.

I made the little pictures for the wall using scrapbook paper.

Do you put cookies out for Santa? I loved doing this as a kid, as my children do now. We had a special plate that we used that, ironically, looks similar to this one. I placed it under the tree awaiting the cookies to greet Santa.

Table & Benches
These came in a kit that was really fun to put together. Thanks to the precision cut wood, everything fit together like a dream and it was a great little project. I white washed it for a more personalized look.
