Welcome to a
"Rustic" Junky Holiday!
What is a rustic junky holiday? Well, it's a mix of rustic items with Grandmother's china and your fine Waterford crystal. You heard me right! The best part is that you have everything you need around the house and...(gasp!)...even in the garage. It's easy, it's both rustic and elegant, and...it's junk-inspired! Check it out!
Start with a car jack, a heavy (and I mean heavy!) house jack, and a vintage Christmas tree stand. Adjust the house jack to the height you desire. Place them on a white tablecloth, add some candles, and mix in Grandmother's china.
Turn down the lights and you have a warm glow on your rustic tablescape. Incorporating mirrors doubles the visual impact.
Use an old clipboard for a charger under Grandmother's china gravy boat.
Place candles strategically and creatively to create the best glow. If people will be reaching across the area, glass enclosed candles are the best option.
This Christmas tree stand is very unique! It automatically adjusts to the size of the tree or candle. The weight of the tree or candle forces the arms to press inward. No screws needed!
Arrange them together or separately.
To add some sparkle, bring in some greenery and some Waterford crystal.
Use metal floral frogs as name cards. What are the name cards? Hand-written names on the back side of old business cards! You could also use old gift labels or greeting cards.
Add the charm of a hand-turned bottle cork and you have the makings of a simple but memorable rustic junky holiday.
