Welcome Back! Guess what today is…
How excited are you?
Today I thought I’d share my dining room shelves all done up for Christmas. You may remember my summer and fall displays. This is the first year I’ve had these shelves and I was excitedabout decorating them for the holidays.
I had a few friends over on Thanksgiving Eve so the shelves’ new look came together quickly and without too much thought.
It was a bit of impromptu decorating, but I liked it so much that I decided to keep it. Perfect!
I found the nutcrackers at T.J. Maxx and Target.
The white lace pattern votives were a steal at Ikea. I think they were around $3 each. With a little tea light, they look like a million bucks!
Everything else I had on hand, including the green vases that were in my Ode to Oz display. I picked them up for a few dollars this fall at Goodwill.
The little felt deer are from my shoppe as are the white vases. (Yes, having a gift shoppe in your house has some benefits.)
The real centerpiece of this display, however, are my burlap trees. I made them last year for FOLK magazine. Remember? They are probably one of my favorite Christmas decorations.
They are not for sale, but I will teach you how to make them tomorrow here on the blog. Is that fair? Although they are pretty easy to make, they are a bit time intensive. If I remember correctly, I watched both seasons of Pushing Daises (great show by the way) as I put them together.
Anyway, that’s my Christmas dining room shelf display! What do you think?
