Putz Christmas Cottage Tablescape

 I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! We had our family over for Christmas dinner and had a great time.  Several years ago I saw a display of little glittered cardboard cottages (called Putz) and loved the vintage handmade look.  I love the imperfections of the little cottages and the mica-dusted roofs give the appearance of snow covered rooftops and thought I would create a Christmas table around it this year. I purchased them on Ebay and bought some “snow” at Michaels along with some glitter garland, and bottle brush trees at the Dollar Store to make the table scape. I used a battery powered string of lights and hid them under the glitter garland to make the silver tinsel sparkle.  I found some pretty silver ribbon and tied them around the napkins and set them on my silver plated chargers that I like to use for holidays.  I loved the whimsy of the table and will use them to decorate my side table next year and love that I have started a new holiday decoration tradition that I can bring out each year.

The little sad face on the snowman cracks me up.
