Serene snowflake table setting

 This year Christmas dinner was eaten in our son's garage. Yeah, I know it's sounds like a strange thing to do it was  an unconventional thing  for us to do too. But actually it made perfect sense.
In general houses in the uk are small, too small  to have the whole family round for dinner at one time.
My son suggested having dinner in his garage. 

He would build a table big enough for 11 people and carpet the floor,  put in a ceiling and lighting in the apex roof.
 I have to say he did a really good job and when it was all finished it actually felt quite cosy in there.

I would make the oversized table cloth the placemats,  napkin rings and place cards and a tree skirt to hide the stack of wheels in the corner which had the Christmas tree stuck in the middle.

The table cloth was made from a white sheet which I stamped using black and grey stazon ink pads and the serene snowflake stamp set from SU.
The placemats were A3 black card stamped using the serene snowflake stamp set  and heat embossed with silver embossing powder. The napkin rings where made from a strip of black card and a strip of mirri card, which I had embossed with an embossing folder.  The tree skirt matched the table cloth.
The name cards I have already done a post on so I won't go into those again.
With all that done all that was left to do was cook my third of the meal on Christmas day but that's another story......
Everything turned out ok in the end and I think everyone forgot we were in a garage.
