Holiday House Tour 2011

A Silver and Gold Tablescape – The silver glass chargers came from Goodwill as well as the brass deer.  The little gold glass tree came from Michaels.  The silver and gold mercury glass votive holders came from Target as well as the snowflake salad plates.

I hung shiny silver ornaments from the chandelier to add height to the center of the table.  I kept the rustic tray from my fall decorating for the Christmas centerpiece.  It makes it easy to move the decorations to make room for plates of food.

I added some faux greenery and red berries to the blue Bell jars on the bookshelf.  On the opposite bookcase, I place more of the shiny silver ornaments as well as some small gold ornaments under a cloche.

In the foyer, I kept the birch slab from fall decorating and placed my favorite nativity under the large cloche.  The lamp is new this year and I am enjoying the added light.

The Lettered Cottage is have a link-up party to show off Tablescapes for Christmas.  I am participating by including a link to my new section of pages that chronicle how I have decorated different areas of our home over the years.  In the spirit of true procrastination, I have only updated the Dining Table and Foyer page with photos from 2011.

I think Habitual Rearranger fits me well because I am never settled on designs, colors, or placement of items in our home. I drive Bradley crazy sometimes, but I keep figuring out new and better ways of doing things! I am not striving to be profound or an expert on anything in this blog. It is simply a way to keep a record of all of my adventures - home and life - for me to reference and also for my loved ones to follow along. I am a born and raised Georgia girl. I don't think I would enjoy living anywhere except the south. Bradley and I spent six and a half years in our starter home and are now in our forever home, a 1970s traditional two story brick house. I love getting into all kinds of projects around our house, and I try to document all the dirty details here if for no one else than for me.
