My Christmas Coffee Table



It has been over six months since my last post!  It has been
good, but rough year for the Stewarts.  I'm surprised that I
have any followers left!  More of that whole story later!

I thought I would start my blogging again with a little bit
of inspiration for Christmas!  You can see that I am getting
all of my silver polished up for the holidays.  The picture
above was definitely the storm before the calm!




I even had to resort to putting some of my pieces on the floor
because my counters were so full of stuff!  Why do I always
get these brainstorms at midnight?





Here is what I started with...a large silver tray in the center
of the coffee table and three very large silver vases on
the sides.





Then my very LARGE vintage trophy cup was added to the tray
along with some frosted glass votive candle holders...





I was searching for the right color of Christmas balls to put in
the trophy cup, but I didn't have enough.  What to do?  I
remembered that I had purchased a few bags of hot pink 
and silver present bows at Hobby Lobby a few days before.
Why not?  I like the way they look and they match the bright
colors on my tree this year (more on that in another post)!





I think that it looks pretty and very festive!





I added some shiny ornaments (that didn't fit on the tree)
in a little crystal bowl to give the tray some color.





With a little bit of imagination, you can make your holiday
displays look festive and pretty without breaking the bank!

Merry Christmas!

It's good to be back!
