Here's her efforts ...
My son sprayed the box for me with Krylon Colormaster in nickel. Then I taped it off and used gold to create two stripes around the box. I figured I may as well get with the mixed metal trend.
Fresh flowers are a must anytime of year.
A favourite vase, fluted and textured makes a stunning centerpiece on my coffee table. Nothing else is needed.
And my favourite berry wreath that has been in every room in the house over the years surrounds a vase of baby's breath and white carnations. You can tell I like my flowers simple and usually white because they work anywhere with anything, especially with red.
I was very lazy with the dining room additions....
I'm not a theme driven decorator, but nature is always a staple in whatever I do. My new purchase for 2014 was two white carved reindeer. I always buy a green plant; this year it is a Norfolk pine in a faux burlap container. May it live for awhile.
For my dining table centrepiece I simply added some fresh cranberries to my Boben vase, and used it as a candle holder, added a string of red wooden beads (at least 30 years old) and fake red berries to the well used vase of twigs. In honour of the season I changed my tray to my favourite white one with the silver leaf birds and leaves.
