We have officially reached that wonderful time of year again!
Roger & I technically started listening to holiday music in October, but now that Thanksgiving is over there is nothing stopping us from fully embracing this magical season!
And as this year draws to a close the celebrations, parties & time spent with friends & family is just going to become more & more numerous!
I want to shout holiday cheers from our back deck in excitement, but our neighbors may think I’m crazy.
So instead I’m going to spend my evenings decorating our home in holiday cheer!
This year I started with our dining room table to create this Silver Bell Tablescape.
But before you say no to all of the white on this holiday table I’m going to share a secret with you that will make your holiday clean up so much easier.
And no, my secret to keeping our holiday linens clean isn’t to hide them away in the back of the closet, instead, you just need a good quality laundry detergent! Persil® ProClean® Power-Caps® is a premium laundry detergent that you can see, smell, & feel.
I know how tempting it is to want to hide everything white, especially when kids are around, but Persil® is a premium, powerful laundry detergent for those with the highest standards for cleanliness. Formulated with special Pro10 Technology, it delivers 10 Dimensions of Clean to stand up to life’s messy moments. And believe me, I make a lot of messes!
But luckily it’s not just me that makes messes. Our 11 nieces & nephews (all 11 & under) love coming over to our house & they help me make the messes bigger.
We had our 6-year-old twin nieces over for a sleepover last month (their parents were running a marathon early the next morning) & we spent our evening watching a holiday movie & drinking big mugs full of hot chocolate snuggled up on the couch with blankets.
While they didn’t spill a drop, I had nothing to fear because Persil® ProClean® Power-Caps® at Walmart is formulated with Pro10 Technology to help remove tough stains for an exceptional clean!
To be honest, I actually did spill some while pouring us up 4 mugs topped with lots of whipped cream…
As normal, you want to follow product instructions & follow the cleaning instructions as prescribed on clothing. (Also, as with all products, always test for colorfastness before pretreating. Test the product on a small hidden section of the fabric for colorfastness.)
- First, you want to treat stains as soon as possible – letting a stain set just makes them harder to remove later.
- Second, pour on enough detergent to cover the stain.
- Third, rub the Persil® laundry detergent into the stain & let it sit for 5 minutes.
- Fourth, wash the warmest water safe for the garment (always double check your tags) with a dose of Persil® laundry detergent.
- And finally, check the results before drying.
So since Persil® ProClean® laundry detergent delivers 10 Dimensions of Clean for a premium clean you can see, smell, & feel (stain fighting, whitening, brightening, anti-graying, clean rinsing, long-lasting freshness, odor fighting, cold water cleaning, clean fresh scent, fiber care) I decided to up my holiday table decorating game this year by creating this Silver Bell Tablescape.
To create this holiday table I started with a sheer white piece of fabric (cut right from the bolt – no sewing needed) as a table runner that is held together on each end with a silver napkin ring.
I then added faux cypress branches on top of the table runner with 2 bunches (about 20 branches each) of fresh silver dollar eucalyptus on top of the faux branches.
You could totally skip the faux branches (or exchange them for real ones), but I added them beneath the eucalyptus to give the whole centerpiece more depth & character.
Next, I added 7 silver candlesticks (of varying heights) along with two types of mercury candle holders to the center of the tablescape.
To finish off this Silver Bell Tablescape I tucked in 2 dozen silver bells all over the centerpiece.
Now I know people often opt out of using real cloth napkins during holiday parties, but I’m obsessed with this off-white linen napkins.
Since Persil® ProClean® Power-Caps® has a powerful stain fighting combination for a premium clean, I have nothing to worry about. Which is great because I’m one of the messiest at our holiday parties!
All Persil® laundry detergents can be used in all machines, including HE.
Which is great because Roger & I are planning to upgrade our washing machine when we move into our new house!
Speaking of our new house, have I told you my crazy dream of having floor to ceiling sheer white drapes in our 20ft high living room?
My mom & I were standing in our future living room discussing this dream of mine earlier this month.
Although taking them down once a year to clean will require a really tall ladder (& someone who isn’t afraid of heights), everything after that will be a cinch because Persil® Power-Caps® detergents are a convenient, pre-measured, single-use detergent capsule with Pro10 Technology to help fight even the toughest stains for an exceptional clean.
I made the switch to detergent capsules a couple of years ago & I’ve never looked back! I just love the convenience!
Back to these cloth napkins & this Silver Bell Tablescape!
When I purchased the 2 bunches of eucalyptus I also bought 1 branch of seeded eucalyptus.
I used tiny clear hair ties to create a mini bouquet with one silver dollar eucalyptus leaf & a few seeded eucalyptus leaves on top.
Then I took a short piece of twine & tied a knot to cover the clear hair tie.
I used a longer strand of twine to hold the mini eucalyptus bouquet in place on the linen napkin. Super easy!
And since Persil® ProClean® is great for everyday laundry & to help fight tough stains I’m not afraid to host a holiday party using all of our white linen!
I’m absolutely obsessed with how this Silver Bell Tablescape turned out & I can’t wait to start holiday hosting!
