To create this I stopped by our local flower shop where I spotted some beautiful twigs with shades of red. They were perfect to go with my deep red table cloth and the baubles in our Christmas tree. However, I was in need of something green to go with them. At first, I thought I would go with a couple of branches from our hedge but then I saw these beautiful eucalyptus leaves. Perfect or what?
I didn’t bind these together or anything, I just assembled these on the table and put a couple of simple candlelights in between them. Our guests loved the table decoration and I hope I can keep everything for our next dinner party this Saturday (I basically bought all the eucalyptus leaves they had left at the flower shop).
If you take a closer look at the pictures you will notice the hostess gift I made for our guests: chocolate chip cookies. These are a personal favourite of mine and have been on the menu for quite a couple of times. They’re so easy to make and everybody loves them. I think I might bake these again for our annual New Year’s dinner with the parents this weekend, since I know my dad loves these.
