Vintage Christmas Arrangement and the Thankful At Home Party – Day One

I will be very busy this week making Christmas wreaths and holiday arrangements….

…..for our neighborhood Annual Craft/Artisan Show.

I worked on this arrangement yesterday…..

… creating my Thankful At Home table.

Vintage Coffee Tin Flower Arrangement

I am making Christmas arrangements using vintage containers, like this coffee tin.

One of my mottos….

I feel any faux floral arrangements look so much better….

… a very interesting and sometimes “out of the box” container.

If this does not sell at the show…I think I will keep it for myself!…

  2. Oh that’s definitely going to sell! I agree with you about creating things with faux materials, the more unusual and unique the better! Have fun with the neighborhood show!

  3. Your Christmas arrangement is lovely and I adore that it is in a unique container. I don’t think you will be bringing that back with you.

  6. I used to do this every Fall. We would sell things at craft shows and at a pumpkin patch. Lots of work, but fun. If I were there, I would definitely buy your coffee canister arrangement. It is wonderful!

    Great job, Shirley. I just had a dejavu moment. Remember the floral arranging class we took together? You got an A and I got a C. LOL If it doesn’t sell you can send it to your flunky friend in Colorado.

  10. Shirley this is beautiful, you did such a great job and I really love the container you chose. I have to believe this will fly off the display quickly!

  20. I LOVE that arrangement and that it’s in a coffee canister! Too bad you didn’t live in Chicago, I totally would have purchased it as a gift for a friend that is sure to love it as much as I do! And I do love that scale on which you have the arrangement displayed! Your home decor is always so much fun!
