don't know about you, but for me the decorating of my house for Christmas is a process. First I put away all of my "fall" decorations. Next I bring things up from the basement...that takes many trips up and down the stairs. Then I make a huge mess all over the great room floor by staging all of the tubs and greenery there. I have to see all of my items before I start placing things around the rooms. Even then, I take the vignettes apart and try again. So...here are a few images of my process.
I add the bag of faux fruit to the tray.
I am not talented enough to take pics of glass...and not have reflections.
Here is the finished look. It follows my vignette formula: tray + candlesticks + filler/fruits = pretty vignette/centerpiece
I think that this vignette would work fine for Thanksgiving and fall with plain pillar candles instead of Christmas trees.
While the sanded fruits are mostly fall colors, I think that they work just fine for a traditional display.
I add a couple of Christmas ornaments to the mix.
Ta da! Christmas@MyKentuckyLiving.
The question is, how long will I leave this arrangement before trying something else on the great room coffee table? This will stay until inspiration strikes for a new mix of decorations.
I will be grading papers and drinking lemon and spice tea.
Thanks so much for visiting today.
