Deck the Halls!

Oh, I had fun on Sunday afternoon! It was time to begin decking our halls, so I headed to the basement storage closet with a flashlight and a glass of wine! I can't seem to resist vintage ornaments and over the years, I've collected boxes of them in all colors and sizes. Since choosing a color scheme proved more challenging than holiday decorations should be, I decided to go with a rainbow of color and stacked them in these old jars I usually keep in the kitchen. I think they look wonderful all together on this bureau in the living room. Next came my little sparkly silver and white vintage tree... with more vintage ornaments. This sweet little star came from 5gardenias on Etsy. It looks perfect atop a little white wicker table in our dining room, waiting to light the corner at Christmas dinner.

... a couple of gorgeous white poinsettias, a pair of sculptural silver reindeer, a beautiful blue and green 'stained glass' fabric star, a distressed silver metal angel and some glitter trees complete the picture. I can't wait to put up the tree this weekend!
