It's a cracker of a post from Edna

Good morning and welcome to the blog today.

I had a bit of a dilemma choosing which Christmas decorations to use for my table You can read about that here. In the end, I went for the square cracker and finished the decoration and love it !

I bought all sorts of bits and bobs at my local nursery for my advent calendars and I found a jar of tiny cones, some red berries, cinnamon sticks and greenery. I am so glad they weren't wasted and I've ended up with really Christmassy crackers as a result.
I'm making gingham ones for the boys without the foliage! Decoration on those to be decided. :)

Here is the finished result. Hope you likey!
