Christmas Red

Hello everyone, how are you holding up with Christmas just
weeks away? I started decorating right after Thanksgiving,
we did put the tree up but didn’t decorate it, and I’m so
glad I did because Christmas has come really fast this
year. I’ve started shopping earlier this year too.

Today I took some pictures while the sun shined at times.
I found this centerpiece at Michael’s I put it in a wooden
box and I added the pinecones. I have it sitting on a
runner I bought a couple months ago at TJMaxx knowing then
that I wanted to add more red to my Christmas decorating.

After I took the picture above I tried it with this frame I
had painted blue. I like it but just not sure about it,
I love it with the red.

My hairdresser gave me two sets of these Christmas dishes for a service of 8,I just love them, they were bought at Kohl’s and I think they go well with the
feedsack runner.

I kept this vignette the same as last year but did add some twinkle lights.

I bought the red mirrored tray… in fact I went shopping for one and
found it, first time that has happened. See the little snowflakes I
made? I used some sort of baby yarn from Walmart. They turned out so
cute, they even shed a little so it does look like snow.

I love the look of different candle sticks all arranged together don’t you?
There is brass, ceramic, mercury glass, silver and pewter. Different
shapes and textures. I love adding red this year in my home.

I hope you had a great Monday and are finishing up with
your decorating and baking oh,and shopping too.
I’ll be joining these parties:

Everything looks festive and pretty, Rondell! I think we might have bought the same table runner! I wanted more red, too. I just started decorating and I actually got some shopping done today. Every minute is busy!!

Really pretty! Our sun is shining here for the first time in days. I need to take advantage of it too.

Such a lovely Christmas decoration, Rondell, so full of warmth and cozy! I love the way the striped ribbon echoes the red bows on your china :)

Oh, I'm in love with the red and white striped table runner you found! That's so pretty. I'm a big fan of that colorscheme this year too. Everything looks so pretty in your home this year.

Just lovin' the red and white. Even though it's a classic Christmas color way, it looks so fresh. You always have a knack for putting things together! Jane

Rondell- Everything looks great. It is nice that you can kind of re-do what you did last year and just update a bit here and there. That is basically what I did here this year, too- xo Diana
