Hello! Hello!  Are you ready for your holiday yet? Has this ever happened to you?

You get the call.. yep, that's right.  Your sister-in-law Suzy has strep throat.  She can't have Christmas dinner at her house.  Could you possibly host?  The family swears they will bring all the food.  It is 2 days away!

Warning bells start going off in your head as you look around the house at what you thought was a "safe" mess, because you were going out for Christmas dinner.  You start to panic... sweat is pouring out of your pores.  Things get "stashed," toilets get scrubbed, vacuuming is completed.

Uh-oh.  What should you do with your table?  I have the perfect solution for you!  Here is a super simple tablescape made with dollar store items, the great outdoors and a scarf from your hubby's closet!

Throw down a scarf on the table.  It makes a great table runner!! Grab some mason jars, Epsom salt, dollar store votives and ornaments (or pull some from your tree!).
Gather some greens and pine cones from outside or get greens from the local produce/grocery store.  You can even pull apart a fresh wreath you catch 70% off!
I set up my mason jars at various heights just using small gift boxes.  Throw down the greens (random is best!), mason jars and add in the pine cones and ornaments.  
 It will look great all the way around!
For a place setting, I used a jingle bell (dollar store) and tied my napkins with twine.  Super simple!
I know this set up only took me about 20 minutes to throw together with things I had around the house or outside.  Fresh greens always make things feel more fancy to me.  Like you spent HOURS arranging it.  
I wish all of you a holiday of love, joy and of course, stress-FREE! Hugs to you!!
