Simple Christmas Vignettes

in , by Julie Nichols, December 18, 2014
Hello Friends
Hope everyone is doing well and not stressing too much over the Holiday.

My topic today is:
 How to Add warmth to your home
in minutes
for Christmas
spending money.

A quick and easy way to do this; is simple:
Use what you doesn't have to be Christmas related.  I used my favorite plates and other items that I love adding pine cones and clippings from my Christmas tree.

Here are a few vignettes I put together.
Hoping to give you some last-minute inspiration.

I displayed my favorite blue and white plates on open shelves in our dining area.  

Clippings from our Christmas tree and pine cones are placed in a blue and white umbrella holder on top of a small table.  I added a rustic birdcage, a mercury glass Santa and a plate of yummy homemade caramel brownies.

A glass bowl full of sweet oranges, my grandmother's crystal lamp, and a couple of glass milk jars.
Makes it 

A Pretty Pink Christmas Cactus

And my Pretty..... Molly Girl 
She really wanted to taste one of those brownies. 

Here are a few pictures of what I have in the stainless steel cabinet.
Stacked antique white plates and delicate gold-rimmed tea cups.

I love the patina on the plates. 

On another shelf, I have a stack of cobalt blue bowls and a child's baking set in a small wicker basket.

I like to save wine bottles in striking colors and use them as vessels for flowers.  
I have two displayed in the cabinet. 
Silver bells and a ribbon are tied around my favorite bottle.

Pine cones are placed in a cheese cloche.

I hope I inspired you to add warmth to your home for Christmas without spending money.

Now hurry up and decorate!!
