Our Waldorf Advent Seasonal Table | from Blue Bells and Cockle ShellsWe are secular homeschoolers, who happen to use the Waldorf method for our homeschool, so we did not include items such as advent circles or creches. Of course, we also don’t use a table, but use a small Montessori shelf instead. We started by laying Christmas colored silks on each shelf (we buy all of our play silks from A Toy Garden). We then started with this adorable gnome home and gnome peg dolls, which I purchased from the Etsy shop, Green Mountain Wee Woolies.
Advent Table 2 We have several of these cute Christmas wooden toys from Woodenful Toys, another Etsy shop.

Winter Seasonable Table | From Blue Bells and Cockle Shells

Our winter seasonal table/shelf is pretty simple right now. Sola insisted that we should not use any silks to decorate it for winter. In addition, between the holidays and the weather, we have not had a chance to go on any nature outings recently, so we have no pieces of nature added to the table. […]
