Here is our entry hall table. Over the mirror, I hung the pretty ornament wreath that I made for last year's Christmas mantel. If you'd like instructions on how to make this pretty (and inexpensive) wreath, I wrote a tutorial last year. You can find it here.
I also used one of my faux mercury glass votive holders. I wrote a tutorial on those as well. You can find that here. And I put these cute chenille Christmas trees on top of some brushed nickle candle holders. And I know you're going to be in shock, but I have a tutorial for those as well. You can find it here.
I added this photo in just for fun...it's the reflection in the mirror behind the wreath. Is it just me, or have you ever looked at a room in a mirror's reflection and thought "huh, I think I like the room better in reverse."? No? Oh, that's just me, then? Ha ha. But I do love the way the mirror reflects our Christmas tree.
Over in the dining room, I decorated the top of the buffet with a snowy-silver-and-white-winter-scape.
I added a little bling by putting a sequined tree pick in a vintage mercury glass vase.
Finally, a large, vintage, bottle brush tree that my mother gave me last year, sits next to a glittery church-and-tree village perched on a stack of old books.
Of course, the thing I miss the most about not having a fireplace, is the dilemma it creates about where to hang the Christmas stockings. I came up with a solution for that as well...
And I promise to show you in my upcoming Christmas Tree post.
Y'all come back now, ya hear!
