Every year, I pick a color theme for my Christmas decorating. I've done everything from black and white, to hot pink and purple. I generally know by the time Christmas is over what the color theme will be the next year. I had a plan for this year, but I just didn't "feel it" when the time came to decorate my house. So, a shift in plans and a bit of thought about how I was feeling this year about the holiday changed everything. I decided I wasn't feeling bright, colorful and cute...I was feeling soft, shimmery and sparkly. I wanted something soothing and pretty (without buying a lot of new things). Today I'm showing you part of my library table at the top of the stairs. Marty makes it difficult to share my tables because I seem to have a cloche or two on most of them that I don't want to show until her cloche party.
You can see that I started with some silver fabric on the table, topped with live greens. The silver trees I've had for many years, a scattering of Pottery Barn stars and a new little snow clown that I purchased in Franklin, TN. He was meant to go under a cloche, but he wouldn't fit in any of mine.
The ornaments give you a hint of what my tree looks like this year.
Just a little hint of red in the frame of an old time looking picture. It is hard to see that it also has a bit of sparkly snow on it. Pretend you don't see that tiny cloche...you will be seeing it again soon. I apologize for the lighting in the photos. We have had a series of gray days and this table isn't near a window. More to come...
I am joining Marty at A Stroll Thru Life for Table Top Tuesday.
Please say an extra prayer for Marty's family
today...her mother-in-law is gravely ill.
This is the last day to sign up for my
