Ladies Christmas Tea

Every year our church has a ladies Christmas tea. Somehow, this was the 1st year I have ever hosted a table. I wanted to do something rustic/pretty/classic. So I went with burlap, mason jars, evergreen, cranberries, log rounds, a lantern and deer antlers. 
Close up of the place setting, I used little chalkboards as the place cards. And tied the silverware and napkins with twine, a cinnamon stick and evergreen. Perfect! 

I love the way it all came together and I like the way my Christmas dishes sort of dressed it up a bit.
