Christmas Decor Ideas Worth Repeating

I hope you all had a fabulous Thanksgiving.  We did, so much food and I ate way too much.  Now I need to work it all off and get my Christmas Decor going.

Time to get my ideas together for this year.

Looking back at what worked in the past is a great way to get ideas that can be tweaked and used again.

With parties and tons of entertaining, I seem to need a few different centerpiece ideas through out the Holiday season.

I looked back in the archives and found a few from the past that could work again with just a few adjustments.

I love a casual setting for the breakfast table.  Filling the soup tureen with nuts, berries and candles is a great way to use what you have.  This gives the table a fun farmhouse look paired with the straw picnic placemats.

I still have a thing for Roosters, so Mr. Roo pulling the Mrs. is fun.  I think she's been out gathering decorations.  This could work on an island or kitchen counter really well too.

For the dining room I need something a little more formal most of the time.

Dressing up hurricanes with some pearl sprigs and glitter candles can add a lot of interest to a simple vignette.

A champagne bucket is perfect for all kinds of centerpieces.  Here a bottle brush tree and a few picks give this vignette a touch of elegance.

I think we all have collected quite a few different "trees"  Grouping them together makes a statement much more dramatic than using them individually.

The bins are all coming out and the fun begins.  Can't wait to have the music playing, singing along and creating magic.  How about you?
