STILL Decking the Halls!!

Just can't stop!

There is always one more thing I can "embellish!!"


I found these big shiny blue ornaments while "shopping for others."





So, my new theme for my recently redecorated dining room is 'blue and silver.'

(After all, I've never been able to use this room, before - remember? So, OF COURSE I needed to buy Christmas decorations for that room.)

The DIY part of this post is simple: (1) Cut fresh greenery (frasier fir and magnolia leaves) and lay them around the room, (2) place beautiful christmas balls all around the room. Voila!!! Plus, there is the $3 craft on the front of the mantle, from a previous post here.

(above: poor lighting and bad photographer)


I really want some fake powder snow for this platter - but cannot find any.

And notice my real magnolia leaves around the magnolia painting! Clever, eh?........

I also showed you the footed trifle bowl with the pinecones, fir, and balls, last week.



I love how ornament balls can really just go anywhere..........



And since this post involves my dining room FURNITURE, I am joining the Furniture Feature Blog Party! as well as Saturday Nite Special!

That platter is amazing!!

I was strutting around in the thrift stores with some great finds for Christmas, but when the lady just in front of me with the humungous basket of the ittyest bittyest stuff started counting her wares one at a time in slow motion, I plunked my scoops on a table and left. I was too tired to stand there and watch while I gritted my teeth. I was too tired to grit my teeth too.

So that is MY excuse for no further decorating. Thank goodness!! LOL

Thanks for linking up to SNS!

Its So Very Cheri said...

I really like the robin egg blue, so pretty and I LOVE the dried hydrangeas-a fav.
I have had so many Google problems-and it isn't over-Google has no idea how to solve the problem.
Sorry I haven't been by much-I decided after weeks and weeks of non-stop Google issues, I am throwing my hands up and making much needed visits.
I hope you have a Very Merry Christmas and hope you can come by for a visit.

Everything looks so great! I wish I have a fireplace in my dining room. Well, in every room. I love the hydrangeas in the white urns. And it's so funny, I was just making little moss topiaries in silver bowls and now I spotted yours. They're a classic and look great.

Do you have any Epsom salts? You could use that for snow. Love the blue ornaments, what a great touch of color!
