First up is the one we gather around the most-the kitchen island. I try to keep this area simple because we are usually spread around it and I need room for the ketchup and ranch dressing!
I took an off-white urn that hubby bought me at an auction for about $7, filled it with red ornaments (with some bags in the bottom for filler), stuck in my favorite light green eucalyptus and some sparkly berries. Then I tied a big red bow on it just for kicks.
Then I leaned this big ole paper mache ornament on it. I don't even remember where I found this, but it was one of those things that I loved the minute I saw it and I had no idea where I would put it.
I forgot to mention that I put it all on a tray. To make it easy to move if I need more room for ketchup and ranch dressing.
Next table top is my dining room table.
Honestly this room doesn't get much action
because I am too lazy to carry everything the extra 10 steps.
I started with a polka dot table runner, added a silver tray and gathered up a large reindeer and silver trees.
I added some greenery and different tones of silver ornaments.
I hung these "peace," "joy," and "noel" ornaments from the chandelier.
