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!…

  1. I hate to be the bearer of bad news but….that is going to sell. Uhh yeah, kiss it goodbye. It’s stunning!

    You might wanna make another one LOL

  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.

  4. It is stunning, Shirley. Where is the sale – and when?

  5. I think I would have a hard time letting that one go, Shirley! Beautiful!

    Can’t wait to see what you share on the tour!

  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!

  7. Beautiful arrangement and I think you will not be bringing this home – it will sell right away.
    Can hardly wait to see you on the tour.
    Have a great day and good luck with your fair.

  8. I think it will sell quickly. I love the vintage tin.

    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!


  11. I agree, this will definitely sell, and I would be fighting my way to the front of the queue if I was there!

  12. Lady Delores LeBoeuf says

    Oh it will sell……..its gorgeous, love the height of the arrangement……ah shucks, I live in central California or else I would go shopping to your place….TFS

  13. It looks great, Shirley.

    I am sure it will sell!

  14. Wow, you have honed your skills and that is a beautiful arrangement! Just gorgeous.

  15. Shirley- That looks GREAT! WOW! Did you find those holly leaves edged in gold or did you do that yourself? LOVE that look- xo Diana

  16. Shirley, I really love your coffee tin and the arrangement you put together-great job!

  17. Oh Shirley I think that may just sell quickly. Just gorgeous. You better make another one!

  18. Shirley, this is so cute! I love the coffee container; what a great choice! I ‘m sure it will sell because you have made it a fabulous piece for a vintage Christmas!

  19. Another great arrangement, Shirley! Love the touch of red here and that container is perfect for this arrangement.

  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!

  21. I like your ideas. I think vintage containers make the best arrangements.

  22. Love your vintage coffee container for a floral arrangement Shirley!

  23. LOVE IT Shirley…I know that won’t last too long!
