Thinking about your Christmas tablescape? Knew it! Is it keeping you awake at night? Wondering how you can match your Christmas crackers to the centrepiece? Thought so. NO ONE PANIC.
Got a Little Gem Magnolia in your garden? No? No need to worry, you can get the leaves from a florist for next to nothing. They are glossy. And green. With a brown under leaf. I’ve never seen a leaf that says Christmas like this one does.
Fold a leaf and make a wee snip. THUSLY. Do that each side of the stem. Go on! It’s fun!
Take some twine and weave that bastard through the snips like it’s nobodies business.
Do it again, because you can, and because it was fun.
Tie that twine around a napkin.
Whack that on your guests plates this Christmas and be prepared for the praise to come in. “Yes, yes I did make that myself. It’s just a little something that I came up with. Because I’m crafty like that.”
