A Christmas Vignette~

Today I wanted to share with you all one of the Christmas vignettes I have throughout my home. I just love this one which I have set up on top of my pretty white buffet.



I continued on with the white and silver theme which I have going on throughout the house this year. I started by filling up this cheesedome/cloche with small silver ornaments. I love how they sparkle when the lamps are turned on!



Next, I added this glitter-y church ornament and two paper pine trees which I made using my Silhouette Digital Cutter (I have a whole slew of cute items I made which I'll share with you in a later post....and if these super cute trees are any indication...you're going to want to see the other fun decorations I was able to make!) I placed them in my little metal bird dish with some faux snow and they remind me of winter in New England. It is so beautiful in the winter there, with pretty white churches dotting the countryside. Sometimes I really miss living there.



But I digress.

Behind my little New England-y church, is a vintage white bottle-brush tree that I stole inherited from my Mom. I Loooooove it! I'm such a fan of bottle-brush trees, and this one is great because it so large and such a pretty white color! I'm smitten.



Finally, I added a sweet little glitter tree to my bird's nest. I just nestled it right inside with the eggs. Such an unexpected and fun addition to the scene.




I wanted to share with you all my dining room centerpiece as well, but decided after I had started taking photos that since the table itself isn't completely ready for the holidays and I'd rather share it with you all at once, I'm going to wait on sharing the entire centerpiece. But I will leave you with just this one teaser photo!


I'm linking up to Rhoda's Holiday Vignette party! Go check out the other festive entries!

A double-sized edition of the Frugal Round-up is coming your way with Frugal Friday this week. And just like every week, it goes live tonight at 10:00 pm EST.


Have a great day~
