Casual Christmas Tablescape

We won't be hosting Christmas this year, but I thought it would be fun to put together a festive little table setting for a casual dinner with some friends.

I had picked up a couple packs of these red, white, and tan dish towels on clearance at Target earlier in the year. The price was right and they fit the laid back feel of our dinner.

I used lanterns and ornaments I had on hand, along with a little rosemary tree (like the one I used on the mantel) and pine cones from the yard. The runner was a scrap of fabric leftover from when we recovered our headboard in the bedroom, but the fabric had been a tablecloth in its former life so it seemed appropriate to use it for this project. Circle of life and all that.

Please disregard the big blank frame on the wall in the back. One of these days I'll put the picture in there.
Pretty simple, but then not all dinners have to be fancy feasts, right?
