Holiday Decorating - Our Dinning Table

Holiday Decorating

Our Dinning Table

Christmas is almost here, the tree is decorated with tinsel and lights, the gifts are wrapped and tied with bows and now it is time to set the table for our Christmas dinner. 

This year I chose a teal, white and silver theme for our table settings.  It all started with these really pretty reindeer that I purchased here in Korea.  

Then I found these pretty white plates and bowls with silver writing on them.  They say Eat, Drink & Be Merry!!!

I had the teal sparkle tree from last year and it looks perfect with my reindeer. 

I added silver bands to fancy dinner napkins and these beautiful Christmas crackers. This is the first year we have had Christmas crackers. 

I chose my clear French glass goblets with crowns to go with our dinnerware. 

Here are a few more photos to enjoy. 

A very special thank you to my Tiffany for helping me take these photos.  She held up the lace backdrop for me and directed the light.  

I love all the extra sparkle!

Thank you for visiting us today and throughout the year. 

This is the last in my decorating for Christmas series. It is a challenge to decorate here in Korea with our small living space and with many of my belongings in storage back home.  However, I have found it is not impossible and actually takes a lot less time. 

Wishing you and yours a lovely and blessed Merry Christmas. 

Hugs, Beverly

More Holiday Decorating - Winter Wonderland in Glass

Winter Wonderland in Glass

I decorate this large glass jar every year and this year is no exception.  Inside you will find a paper house that I painted and decorated with glitter, bows, beads and more. 

The tiny angels inside are actual vintage pieces that I have collected over the years. 

I added a light pink bow to the top and a sweet vintage angle and bottle brush wreath. 

And what would a winter wonderland be without beautiful glitter snow?  

I also added small bottle brush trees inside.

We are almost ready for Christmas. 

Tis The Season,

My Paper Churches and Vintage Goodies

I love vintage Christmas decorations and these little snowmen from the 1960's always make me smile. 

One of my favorite things is my ceramic pink Christmas tree.  

These paper churches are so lovely.  I got them at Target a few years back and they have become one of my favorites.  

I almost have everything decorated and I will be sharing more photos soon. 

Till then wishing your and yours a beautiful and bright holiday season. 

Tis The Season,
