Coffee Table Christmas Glitz




I have been tweaking things and trying to add a little Christmas decor.  I am going to make it all a little sparse this year, so I dug through all my flower bins and decided that I had enough glitz to make a statement, and call it good.
I made a floral arrangement for the coffee table.  I wanted it to tie into the gitz of the dining table.




 The pictures don't show all the shine, but the poinsettias are sparkly gold and so are the twig picks.




 Nice and simple, but perfect for the low key, glitzy decor I have planned.


The dining table got a few changes while I was at it.
   (Yes, I am still tweaking.  I've already replaced the candlesticks with these hurricanes.)



 and I added this little Santa to the mix.


I like the look better, plus I don't have anywhere to store these huge fragile hurricanes.  So, I will just use them and that solves that problem.


I'm going to call it all good except for the tree.


 The tree will go in the front window next to the leather chair.




DH got all the boxes down, so I need to get going with the rest of the house.

I am joining the following parties:
   A Homespun Christmas @ Savvy Southern Style
   SNS @ Funky Junk Interiors
   Classy Clutter for Spotlight Saturday
   Show and Tell Saturday @ Be Different Act Normal
  Overflowing with Creativity @ It's Overflowing

  1. Very pretty, Marty! Love that little Santa. I hear you on the space issue. I do have hurricanes and glass vases stored wherever I can fit them! Of course, when I need them I can never remember where I put them. : )

  2. I'm taking a cue from you and putting out less this year, too! I've finally learned that the more I put out, the more I have to put away after Christmas! Your tables look great. Can't wait to see your tree!

  6. Hi Marty, I always enjoy your posts and I also have decided not to put out so much this year as I fell a few weeks ago and hurt my arm so everything is quite a chore right now. I can't wait to see your tree..I'm sure it will be charming...take care.

  8. Looks beautiful Marty. From reading the other comments it looks like a lot of us are scaling back on our decorations. I'm slowly tweaking mine to be less formal to fit our little mountain home. Can't wait to see your tree.

  9. Very pretty!!! I like how the magnolias pick up the color of the one pillow on the sofa. Yes, it seems many of us have the same idea for scaling back......and I hear ya on the storage problem.....time to get rid of some stuff!!!

  10. I love the dining room table arrangement...classy, pretty and Santa adds a special touch. I had a friend stop by yesterday and told me my house was decorated like a cabin or lodge, so I guess I got exactly the feel I was going for this year...lots of nature.

  18. My friend, you always do such a beautiful job and you know how to add very classic touches without going overboard. I love your deer. Deer are my newest passion this year. Sorry I haven't been by lately, its crazy at the Garrett House. Love you always.

  20. Lovely decorative sense. I love the flowers. My mom loves artificial flowers, and panic for a new bunch in every Christmas. Other than that the designer furniture made the room look more trendy.

  22. Looking good Marty! Those are lovely hurricanes on your dining table. I love glitz!

  23. That looks so pretty, Marty! I love that you kept some of the glitzy pumpkins from Fall in your Christmas decor. They really add so much, and there is something just so absolutely charming about pumpkins. That is an adorable little Santa that you added to your dining table, and it truly was the finishing touch.

    Happy decorating and have a great weekend!
