Holiday tables often had awesome centerpieces a hundred years ago. Here are some centerpieces and tablescapes shown in the December, 1913 issue of Ladies Home Journal.
18-year-old Helena Muffly wrote exactly 100 years ago today:
Sunday, December 21, 1913: Went to Sunday School this morning. Spent the day in a lonesome way, any how this afternoon seemed that way.
Her middle-aged granddaughter’s comments 100 years later:
Sounds like a boring Sunday. Did Grandma consider making of the holly centerpieces featured in the December, 1913 issue of Ladies Home Journal?
