I bought this silver stool this Fall at a church event sale with Christmas decorating in mind.  I like how this gives this vignette some lift to the area.  I am using a theme of aquas, whites, silver, rusty browns in our upstairs this year.
A tarnished silver dish, vintage strands  of chandelier crystal beads, soft aqua ribbon and 3 misc. sized bleached bottle brush trees.
Misc. silver pcs. used with glitter and sea shells.
Bleached tree in a dome, set on top of a vintage silver heart.
The entire coffee table scape.  This coffee table is waiting for a make over again, but will have until after the Holidays. 
Our Christmas tree is in this room, so the colors flow in this area.
Is this kitty tempted or what?  Good thing shes a good listener when we say NO.

So my friend called and was on her way over to see my white tree I had created.  I had about 1/2 hour to get myself ready, pick up the house and do a quickie table scape for the holidays on the coffee table.  The items were downstairs in a holding area ready to run up the stairs.  This is what I came up with.

Ignore the background color of this coffee table, and pretend it is black, white or chocolate brown.  Haven't gotten it repainted yet, and still have my 1990's green I had painted on this piece.

Thanks for sharing this with us.

She's left everything alone except for some snow covered faux branches that are in a tool box on display and a sign that says "Merry Christmas". She just has to mess with that.
