When I was small I was terrified of Santa Claus. I refused to go anywhere near him at the stores, even though he usually tried to entice children to sit on his lap with a candy cane.
Iâ€™m grown now and the more I think about it, the shadier this Santa character gets. First of all, little kids are told to never talk to strangers. There is no mention of unless he has a long white beard and a red suit. We were also told to never take candy from strangers. This Santa guy always has has candy and seems to defy all the rules in order to get little kids to sit on his lap. Hmmmmm.
A beautiful table setting is not complete without a centerpiece. Itâ€™s like the topping of a cake. For the Christmas season everyone wants something glitzy and different.

The cone trees can be easily accented with vases filled with ornaments or either two small floral arrangements.
