And... I was Rubbing and Buffing (Rub n' Buff) the heck out of everything!
This year.... still going with gold, because I LOVE GOLD.
But I'm doing more of a Christmas feel without necessarily using lot's of "Christmas" decorations.
I'm using my vintage brass pieces, with chandelier crystals, lots of glass, and candles, with just a sprinkle of actual Christmas decorations thrown in.
Our formal dining room table is one of the first things you see after walking through the front door entryway hall. So I thought this year I'd make it a Christmas focal point, but not the dinner table with place setting kind! We rarely use this table for dining so it made sense to me to use it more like a great big accent table!
I wrapped a bunch of little boxes with brown paper (last year) and threw them in a ceramic pot for this year.
I'm using glass bottles of any kind really, as long as they fit a candle. Even using vintage perfume bottles!
I think the chandelier crystals kind of look like ice... so they are my version of icicles.
As far as actual Christmas decorations, there's really only a handful of Christmas ornaments, and a tree topper angel thrown in the mix, but I think it still feels super Christmasy don't you?
So that's it for now, I'm still sorting through stuff and working out what I want where and how I want it, blah, blah blah, but at least I've gotten started!
