Here's the step by step video walkthrough for those who are interested in learning, while watching. Make sure to leave me a comment below if this is helpful.
Step 1: Start by placing your runner in the middle of your table. Make sure to ensure it is flat & free of any lumps or bulges. Do a quick check of your overhang on both sides, this should mirror on the left & the right of your table.
Step 2: Grab your clean glass hurricanes & place them in the middle of the table. You want to make sure they are equally spaced apart on your table runner.
Step 3: Put your biggest ornaments inside your hurricane hook-side down. This will give the rest of the decorations you plan on using some height. Take your time making sure this is done for each of the larger ornaments.
Step 4: Separate your next size up ornaments into sections based on color and/or texture. This helped me tremendously because It allowed me to get specific about placement.
Step 5: Alternate placement of your next set of ornaments. For instance if you have shiny, matte & glittered ornaments you'd place a shiny hook-side down, then a matte, then glittered & continue until all have been evenly spaced.
Step 6: Get your mini showstoppers & alternate placement of those in each hurricane. I had a few beaded shiny & matte ornaments that fell into this category. I didn't place the beaded ones hook side down, because I wanted the texture of the beads to be seen.
Step 7: Step back & ensure your ornaments are evenly distributed. This is where you may need to make some slight adjustments. If needed, make them, step back again & check. There is nothing wrong with doing this part more than once. You aren't necessarily looking for perfection as much as evenness.
Step 8: Insert your candles. If you have a hurricane similar to mine (pictured above) with a separate area for you candle, this is the perfect time to put it in that spot.
Tip: If you have a hurricane that does not have a separate candle space make sure to add your candle during step 2.
Step 9: Place your charger on the table with the folded napkin on top. To fold the napkin, simply fold it in half long ways, then repeat.
Step 10: Then, place your plate centered on top of the folded napkin. Lastly, add your ornament (pinecone) to the center of your plate and put your drinking glass to the top left of that.
Once all the steps are done you should have something that looks similar to the picture above .
