Christmas Vignette

by Chris on December 4, 2010

It’s no surprise that I am late for a party. Rhoda’s having a vignette party. Well, had a vignette party. I’m showing up right around the time that the last guest is leaving, and she’s turning off the lights to go to bed. Oops.

It’s been a little busy around here lately, but the decorating is coming around! It all started with this blue tree. Can I get an “Amen!” Love it.

It was half off at Hobby Lobby. Naturally, that meant I had to buy two. (You’ll see the other one later.) The ornaments came in a package at Target for $4.00. I wired them on with some floral wire and snipped off the excess . You can’t even see it.

I found this little beauty at Marshalls (I think), and it’s a good thing it was the last one. I might have gone a little crazy with a whole herd (flock? gang? school?) of glittered reindeer. Looks pretty cute with the ornament I made, eh?

In an effort to show off my laziness resourceful-ness, I kept the basket I used for my fall vignette. Sticking some candles and glittered ornaments in there Christmasfies it.

Put it all together, and what d’ya get? A simplified, festive, blue Christmas. A good blue Christmas. Not one that you’re all depressed about or anything. That would be weird. Why would I decorate for a depressing Christmas?

i was also late- better late than never! and i also have that tree, but in gold…. they were out of blue. and i didn't like the silver because it was tinsel-y on the stem, too, and i wanted the nice clean stem. love your colors!

Oh…that little blue tree is so pretty. I don't remember seeing these at Hobby Lobby. And I love that reindeer…I would have bought it too if I'd seen it. I love the whole combination.

What a truly wonderful vignette. Love that deer, but love the cute ornament you gave him even more.
Nothing depressing about this vignette, blue or otherwise.

Nikki December 6, 2010 at 9:29 pm

Thanks for the display–I love the idea of different colors to red and green only–and this blue is vibrant and calm at the same time. Well done!

Michaela December 11, 2010 at 8:01 am

So cute! Love the turquoise/blue colors (:
