A Christmas lunch in an old Country Garden

In a lovely old country garden in Moss Vale I set up this tablesetting for a Christmas Lunch, I ran around the garden and found these amazing red wild mushrooms under the pine trees, they became the focal point of the decorations. I discovered some Devils Ivy growing off a tree so I picked enough to use down the centre of the table. Devils Ivy is great to use for so many different things. Here I wrapped the napkins with the Devils Ivy and I also stuffed it into the glass vases before putting the lillies in.

Everyone received a little gift in these green paper bags that I folded over and tied with ribbon and decorated each one with a Lilly each. Very simple and quick to set up.

I'm putting up my Christmas Tree this afternoon, so I will be back later with more images. Have a wonderful day. xxx Coty
