Christmas Details...

I wanted to share with you today some of the Christmas decorating I completed this past weekend.

For those of you who may be just joining, I decided to take an nontraditional approach to my colour scheme on our living room tree this year.  I shared last week that I was going with Teal and Orange as my main colours on this tree.  I did add some additional blue, green, copper and gold ornaments, as well as, some mercury glass birds to the tree.

I also added some other decorations around the room.

For the top of the china cabinet, I changed out the fall platter for a gold rimmed plate with cardinals.
I took the sticks out of the urn and added some pine branches instead.  I changed out the printable in the frame to a great Christmas subway art printable I found over at Eye Candy.

Next I added some ornaments to my blue Ball jar.

And finally a small wooden sign - Believe!

For the dining room table, I used an old wooden tool trug that McG found at a yard sale this summer.  I filled it with Christmas greens and a few pinecones and some red and blue ornaments.

One of the endtables got a metal sign on clearance from Hobby Lobby and a few ornaments.

I also have a small Norfolk pine that I dressed up with some tiny ornaments.

Nothing too extravagant...just little bits of lights and shiny bulbs.

I have yet to finish the sideboard and the ledge between the kitchen and dining room.  I will be back later this week to show you those and our main tree in the basement family room!
