This is a table setting I created for Country Living. All christmas stories is usually produced in august and september, and I tell you getting in to the real christmas groove when it's mega hot outside is not always easy. But you know what, something happens to me when I get surrounded by ornaments, trees, ribbons and wrapped presents. I can get a feeling of christmas in August. Even dressed in a t-shirt, shorts and flip flops. Anyhow, this idea is really cute.

  1. First of all, off to the forest to find a good branch.Needs to be almost as long as your table.
  2. Then you knot lengths of twine around it and hang it from the ceiling from hooks. At least 5-6 hooks.
  3. Then you decorate with your finest ornaments.
  4. You are now ready to party.
