I was excited to use my Arhaus bargain I purchased this summer..

…..large silver metal antlers that were on clearance..

……….they were originally $50 each, but got them for $10 each!!…Yay…love bargains!!

There is a set of three crystal candlesticks…a compote of cotton…and a silver tree…

….on the other side of the floral swag.

The compote is Heisey Plantation…

…..started collecting a few pieces of this years ago…then they became a tad pricey….

A Christmas Table Vignette

I have been very busy decorating each room of my home…

I seem to go from one room to another, not completely finishing one room…

Focus, I need to focus…

With the exception of the 12 foot tree, the living room is just about complete…

…..and here is one of the tables..

DSC_6116

I am using less red in this room this year…

…..going with more touches of silver, white, and cream..

DSC_6115

I made the swag over the mirror…and hung mercury glass ornaments from it…

The house and mercury glass trees were purchases from HomeGoods this year…

…..and I purchased the birds last year after Christmas on clearance from Summer Classics.

DSC_6117

DSC_6124

I love birds and use them in my decor all year round…

I added baskets several months ago to the bottom shelf…

…..and I placed my “one dollar” after Christmas ornaments on the front of them..

DSC_6137

I have many more vignettes to show you….

DSC_6138

DSC_6148

As I love creating vignettes all year long…

….and I am sure you do too!!!

DSC_6125

Thanks so much for visiting!!!….

I am joining:

Kim at Savvy Southern Style for Wow Us Wednesdays

Judy at DIY by Design for Fall Into Fall Party

Christmas Decor has appeared…

I went to one of my favorite garden center/gift shops a while ago, with two of my sweet friends….

…..to sign up for a class on Christmas mantel decorating by a fabulous Christmas design expert.

When we arrived, this is what was in the garden center..

…..the elves were working night and day and here are some of the spectacular trees and decor.

IMG_2824

I am partial to these “upside down/inverted” trees as I have two of them…

This tree has a woodland/owl theme…

IMG_2825

I was discreetly taking photos with my iPhone….:)

I love this reindeer covered with script paper…I think it could be an easy D.I.Y..

IMG_2833

The Christmas designer owns his own company that sells “all things Christmas”….

He utilizes many large items in his design of the trees..like these wreaths.

…..he ran a Christmas decorating contest last year and I won!….

………..I won merchandise from his catalog and can’t wait to receive my “loot”….

IMG_2826

Owls are still very popular this year…but this cute hedgehog is a new item….love him!!

IMG_2827

IMG_2823

It’s hard to see, but there is a large wagon that is incorporated in the base of the tree!

And here are some great letters that are made from books…cut out by using a jig saw perhaps?

IMG_2829

And here is a great idea of “merchandising” a hurricane…

IMG_2817

And yesterday, I traveled to one of my other favorite garden centers/gift shops….

DSC_5319

I needed a few supplies to complete my wreath making….for our community Craft/Artisan show….

DSC_5324

You are greeted by this friendly fella….I cannot believe that I did not buy him!!!

DSC_5335

This is where I purchase quality silk florals…

DSC_5332

Here is a beautiful swag…I bought the materials to make this…

…..and will share it with you soon!

DSC_5337

DSC_5342

So this year, I keep seeing the same theme…of owls and decor of woodland themes…

DSC_5350

I have used owls in much of my decor last year and still plan to do that this year…

…..however, I so love the look of a sparkly “White Christmas”

DSC_5344

This week, I have been busy with social commitments and making wreaths for our community Craft/Artisan show..

My hubby’s “man cave” has turned into “Santa’s Workshop”

DSC_5389

So that I can create my wreaths and swags and coordinate my Christmas decorating….

….like this…a little sneak peek of one of my wreaths.

DSC_5400

So now I shall go back to my “Santa’s Workshop” to make more wreaths!!!

Stay tuned for my creations….

Do you make your own holiday wreaths too?
