The pig has spoken!
He personally said to me – “bring on the bling.”
When Cleetus speaks, I listen.
So bling it was.
In the form of sparkling white lights and snow.
This cheery and bright Vignette in my breakfast room
sets the theme for the rest of the kitchen.
Sweater trees, pinecones and a little bit of sparkle.
I have a little surprise bonus too…
a step-by-step Lighted Candle Tray Project.
I hope you enjoy this…
Christmas Vignette Farmhouse Style
Every season, there are two areas of our home
which I decorate first.
The mantel, which I will be revealing this week,
and this area of the breakfast room.
The rooms are two entirely different styles.
One is English Country – and this one is
pure Farmhouse Country.
I started this vignette with a simple galvanized tray.
A strand of 50-lights was placed inside the tray…
Next, I layered fresh greens.
*disclosure: never leave lights and fresh greenery unattended.
I wanted a focal point but wasn’t exactly sure
what to use. I tried a wood-carved Santa…
It was too small.
I tried a glass, trifle dish.
Nope. Not right, either.
This one was too big.
So, I tried some candles…
They were just right.
Some candy-cane striped ribbon made it even better.
I added sweater trees and fun, polka dot moose.
A fluffy, pine wreath adorned with a sweater ribbon
bow surrounds Cleetus…
And with that…all was right in the Farmhouse Kitchen.
I love how this area of our breakfast room is so versatile.
A new wreath around Cleetus, a new runner, and some
accessories and it says instant Christmas.
I wish you could see in real life how this area takes on a
warm glow at night. I love to light the candles while
I am cooking dinner, and listening to one of my
all-time fave Christmas CD’s by Aaron Neville,
I did add one more small thing…
well, four small things actually.
Four glitter letters…
Four simple letters with so much meaning.
Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel …
Born is the King of Israel.
Joyeux Noel, my friends.
I look forward to sharing our home in these
next few weeks…bedecked in all it’s Christmas glory.
Join me this Wednesday for our Mantel Reveal.
Until then, I would love it if you would PIN these
images to your favorite Pinterest Boards.
I have one more very exciting thing to announce if you
are a Blogger or thinking of starting a blog…
I just released my first eBook…
