Simplifying this Christmas

Minimalist table scape
Trying to keep things a bit simpler, although, when it comes to Christmas, I may be constitutionally incapable of doing that.

This is my initial try--a rough burlap runner, a wire reindeer from Second Hand Rose, pine picks, and votives.

Really trying to do less but have as much impact.  I think one trick is to use what we have but embellish it -- a collection of white ironstone with white lights and greenery added. The bright lights make it difficult to see greenery in photo.  Have to work on that. Will also add more color.  (Haven't brought the ornaments down yet) Think it is going to be a much quieter Christmas this year and trying to keep that in mind as I decorate.
