The first thing I did when returning from Florida for Thanksgiving . . .
~ ~ was to decorate my French buffet for Christmas.
I hope you all had a most wonderful Thanksgiving.
My family and I traveled to Florida . . . to my sister’s home . . . where my mom also lives.
We were there for a week and I was a bit out of cyber sync. . .
~ ~ as my sister lives in the country . . no cell phone coverage and slow internet.
So I took a bit of a blog break.
Trying to keep to my simple Christmas decor this year, I embellished the existing decor . .
~ ~ adding minimal accessories . . . well, as minimal as I get!
I am carrying the Woodland theme throughout the main floor . . .
Using my collection of owls . . .
~ ~ most people love the day after Thanksgiving to shop . . .
~ ~ ~ ~ I love to hit the speciality shops after Christmas for deals on Christmas decor.
Icy branches were placed in the French demijohn and owls perched on the branches.
Ribbon wrapped topiaries placed on the candlesticks
Working on something next to the buffet . . . a bit of a sneak peek.
Always love to add birds to my vignettes for Christmas
The backdrop is a trophy plaque that I bought in France . . .
~ ~ I was told that they were agricultural/livestock awards.
Vintage French Grain Sack and pillow by Ann of On Sutton Place grace the chair in the foyer.
Oh you can see a bit more of my sneaky peeky . . .
Off to do more decorating . . . catching up from being away for a week in sunny Florida.
Happy Cyber Monday!!
