Cute Christmas Topiary and a Refreshed Décor!

(my laptop won’t let me type capitol m’s right now!)

my friend has a beautiful home and had just finished setting out all of her Christmas tree lights and decorations on her tree and then gave me a call.  What can you I created this for my friend’s dining room table…it took a while to build, wire, hot glue and, well, you get the picture…it took a while!  I love how it turned out.



Here’s the outcome…right after I took this picture, my camera went kaput, so now I have to figure out how to upload my cell phone pictures onto the laptop to show you the whole table.  Stay tuned!

And I’m back…went out and got a little thing of plastic to insert my tiny memory card into my built in card reader on my laptop!

Sometimes, the simplest thing you can do to spiffy up the house to look more festive for Christmas is to tie one on!  A beautiful bow, that is!  Choose a pattern that compliments your interior and adds some pop to the room.  You know you made the right choice when ever you walk into the room and it makes you smile!


I added some extra ribbon to the garland at the front door for some pop!


Don’t be intimidated by bow tying…lots of video tutorials online to help you out!


Tie them on picture frames and add an ornament and candle to complete the scene…


or tie one around a basket of greenery and add a few ornaments for instant holiday color…


and what’s a bowl of real fruit without some sparkly ribbon and ornaments?!




Now, back to the topiary…here’s his new home on the center of the table!


These are the cutest Christmas plates…four different scenes and dress up or down. 


Santa and snowman salt and pepper shakers don’t have to stand alone on the table!

The tree…


was loved on with gold mesh ribbon, a new tree topper of gold berry twigs and red feather picks, rather than the bow that used to be there.  Large red and gold balls were added all around the tree along with jeweled poinsettia and gold picks to add dimension to the tree.



All these new additions added the the existing ornaments make the tree claim the room!


In the kitchen, a simple ribbon was added to the gorgeous chandelier…it doesn’t need another thing!


The amaryllis arrangement after a visit to the shop…a good cleaning of the petals and greenery, a new two sided bow, Santa in the front and a beautiful jeweled cluster of grapes on the other side gives it new life…still so pretty.  It has found a home on a bed of Poly deco mesh with a small group of ornaments.


And finally, a few ornaments and Santa are placed in cups and on shelves in the cupboards to take in the tree!
