Its a tradition we have here in this particular house in the land down under the land down under, that I do the Christmas table. This can involved anything from flowers, to interesting balancing acts of pinecones or glass balls to a still life or installation art. This year I went all christmassy and put lots of sparkles and shiny things in red, white and green with lots of gold and silver. The white flowers are potato vine and the wide green leaves are iris leaves. All else is discovered/rescued from the back of cupboards, including the pickling and jam jars which provide an interesting contrast to the leaded crystal glasses and inherited silverware. Humble can be beautiful too.
