2010 Christmas Vignette
December 2, 2010 by Laura
Well hello again…it is time for another Holiday Home party! I can’t wait to see everyone’s links and get some great ideas for our house.
I love our entryway buffet! Aside from our king-sized bed that I can never seem to drag myself out of every morning, it is definitely my most favorite piece of furniture in the house. It might have a little something to do with the fact that I found this piece and restored it myself…just maybe that might be it…
I always play around with the decorations in this area so it is the perfect place to showcase my 2010 Christmas Vignette for Southern Hospitality’s Holiday Home Linky Party
, Kelly’s Korner’s Show Us Your Life Entryway Party
and Hooked On Houses Impromptu Linky Party
I think I’m still playing around with the decor here but for now, I like it! I wanted to do some whimsy with the traditional so I kept my orange platter (this OSU girl has to have a pop of orange in every room!) but put the traditional silver candle holders in it.
These candlesticks were a thrift store find for only $3.25…total! They were brassy, ugly gold. Gross. A quick spray of some silver spray paint and we were on our way to better holders! I added some faux snow (don’t kill me but I’m ready for snow!) and fresh greenery from one of the bushes in the backyard to round out the filled tray.
This mirror was a Hobby Lobby half-off purchase when we moved in and is a wonderful holder for my coffee filter wreath
! I love this wreath more and more…so happy I tried it! Thanks to Jessica at Craftily Ever After for the “Wise Men Still Seek Him
” print…I’ll show you all about that later this week.
This was another Hobby Lobby half-off purchase. More faux snow and some red ornaments transform it into a perfect Christmas accessory! The ‘Believe’ sign was a purchase at last year’s Junior League Mistletoe Market
. I completely forgot about it until I opened up the Christmas storage tubs this year – love that!
This is the first thing you see when you walk in our front door and I am so happy with it! The lamp was left at one of Conner’s college rent houses and has been the best lamp I’ve ever had. I can put any shade on it and it works out great!
Thanks for visiting! I’ll leave you with one last shot of my favorite vignette area…come back soon, it will probably change in another week!
If you’d like to see how I transformed this buffet, check out my post here. I’m linking back to Southern Hospitality, Kelly’s Korner and Hooked on Houses for the parties…I hope you’ll join me!
