I've injected a little bit of holiday spirit into our living room. I'm not the type to limit myself to only a certain colour palette... but our decor is basically metallics (gold, silver, bronze) and a little bit of red tossed in with a whole lot of natural elements. I spent $20 at the dollar store and used decorations from previous years and non-Christmas items to pull our decor together. Here's a peek at our organ:
I hung silver balls that I purchased last year using twine from the hardware store. You should pick some up if you don't already have some - I use it all the time! I bought the three candle holders last year for crazy cheap since one of the red glass pieces was broken. I use the holders without the glass all year round! The little wreaths were under $2 - they're cute, and add a little bit of nature to our living room. The organ is so beautiful, I don't want to muddle it up with a lot of decor. This is just enough for me.
I decorated a little side table, too:
I used three little dollar store trees - they're cheap and do the trick. I bought the metallic mat from Wicker Emporium with some birthday money - it has silver and gold, so it can really work with anything. The candle holders were each under $2: bargain central! I also picked up some gingerbread-scented candles to burn in the evenings. They smell heavenly!
I'm off to wrap a gift or two before I start supper - I found a pretty frame for my sister-in-law today that works perfectly with the verse print that we're giving her. As far as supper goes, I'm feeling pretty uninspired. I just want to get it over with before I do some Christmas baking tonight. Wish me luck!
