Soft glows with pine trees and ironstone was the goal this year
for the great room table vignette.
Boughs of holly clipped from our holly trees
brings the outdoors in.
I am not quite sure why I have not used more holly branches
from my trees before . . . maybe because I am allergic to it’s leaves!
However, with my hubby clipping them and me wearing gloves . . . all is well.
I love the glow of the Luminara birch candle.
It can be a bit mesmerizing!
Lighted pine trees purchased on clearance
from Pottery Barn last year were placed in ironstone tureens.
My favorite seasonal quails
always seem to find a place on the table each year.
Antique French boot forms are waiting to be warmed by the fireplace.
The holly branches just pop against the brilliant white of the ironstone.
While the light from the faux pine trees reflect off the ironstone.
Another texture added with a large pinecone.
The Great Room is almost ready for Christmas
with the exception of the tree.
You can see snippets of the mantel in these images.
