A few weeks ago at TJMaxx I found a little Martha Stewart paper kit called the Glitter Train Station. Normally I wouldn't get too excited about a paper village, but knowing it was Martha I had a feeling it would be pretty charming.
I was even more excited when I saw that it came with the glue and the faux snow glitter. Fabulous. After I brought it home I kept thinking it would be so lovely on my dining table. My only challenge was that I did not want to put all that glitter right on the table. Certainly it would be a complete messy disaster within days, no hope it would last through the holidays that way. So I decided to put the little village in a tray so if necessary I could move it off the table and it would be much easier to clean up after Christmas.
Because I used a tray the train tracks were limited and I ended up not using a few pieces of track, but I like how it looks in this earthy tray that is mirrored in the bottom. All the sparkly glitter just brings the magic. Simple and sweet.
