The Garden Charmers Decorate & Cook for the Holidays

I belong to a group on Facebook called The Garden Charmers. The Charmers are a great of ladies who love to garden and cook, and they all have blogs to showcase their talents.

I asked the ladies in the group to share their decorating and cooking ideas for the upcoming holidays and, as usual, they did not disappoint me. 

All of their ideas are great and give me inspiration for some new things to try this year.

Their ideas for the holidays ranged from A Downton Abbey Christmas tree, to table decor, decorating pine cones,  front door decorations and many tasty food recipes.
