I Copied Country Living

Country Living had a cute idea in their magazine this month.
It was actually an idea by The Farm Chicks.

I used their creativity to design my own cute Christmas display.




This display was "free to me." 
(I already owned everything.)

I had this cute house/birdhouse in my stack of stuff that I simply cannot part with.

I placed the house on a silver platter.


Then found a little Santa in the ornament box to place on the chimney...



I made a wreath from parts of greenery I snipped off with wire cutters.....


I filled some silver mint julep cups with greenery to make a forest to the left of the house (and cover up the bird house hole).



I already had the bottlebrush trees.


I am enjoying this vignette more than the kids!



Hope you are enjoying your Christmas season!

Great idea! I love how simple the table is, but you made a HUGE statement with the cute house. Nice work!
