The room used to look like this...
The room now looks like this...
My dilemma? All of my Christmas decorations for the family room were from the red/green/navy blue family. And while I do love those traditional Christmas colors, they just were not working in this room.
So, I came up with a new plan for my fireplace mantle.
Limited funds meant "shopping" throughout my home and basement to come up with a new Christmas vignette. Fresh cut greens, pine cones, a basket, pitcher/bowl and an antique window pane I bought at a flea market years ago, all came together to create this simple, country-casual holiday display. I hoping to pick up some simple white pillar candles of varying heights to nestle among the greens.
|I love these little pine cones. Each one was handpicked by my then-5 and 3-year olds!|
Hoping your day was "merry and bright"! Small-town Christmas tree lighting post tomorrow!
