Party leftovers

One of the unexpected benefits of hospitality is having all this nice fruit and greenery afterward. The $2.50 poinsettias found a place next to my dining room palm.

(The bakery cut me a better deal, giving me just enough for two pots.)

I even used the last of my 99-cent wired ribbon.

The table runner is a long paisley scarf from Goodwill. I never quite got the knack of wearing over my shoulder, but its color looks so rich against the black table.

I love the ribbons tied around the chair legs! I too am a big fan of tying ribbons unexpected places! Love the dollar ribbon bin at Michael's! I also think your scarf looks great on the table. My sister-in-law uses the beautiful beaded wrap that came with her wedding dress but that she did not wear as her Christmas table runner every year! Merry Christmas! Kelly

I love finding untraditional things to dress up a table, mantle or side bar! I've never thought of a scarf though. That's a great idea.
