I was decorating today and found my favorite lil' red trees. Now I'm moving things from where they normally go so I was looking for a home for our lil' nativity also. I put them together on the table and it looked a bit bare, so I had the idea to try adding some fabric to it.
Then Mike helped me decide that it may not look the best but that I could add garland. I like they basic look of my table and told Mike that in all the pictures and depictions there were not forests of green during Christ's birth. Then the next thought was that there probably wasn't a white ground with red and green polka dots. THEN the light turned on! My fabulous fabric was foretelling the story of Christ's life. The white was His purity, the red and green represent the Atonement in the garden of Gethsemane. I am so good it's scary!
In case you are wondering... I did remove the fabric.
