I have a pre-lit tree... well... it used to be pre-lit anyway! When I got it out today and plugged it in there were no lights! Zip, nadda, zilch! The tree is lit in sections and once I started taking the lights off so I could purchase new lights I found that it was only the bottom section that didn't work so I was able to just remove that section and spread the remaining lights out. Sounds like an easy enough task but with pre-lit trees every 2" of light strand is actually wired to the branch (2" might be an exaggeration but sure it felt like it!)
I managed to get the rest of the house decorated and the tree is up but not decorated yet.
Today I wanted to share my table centerpiece. I didn't buy anything new for this except the snow and it was a thrift store find!
I started with the vintage silver ball wreath which I found at an antique store several years ago, it is one of my favorite Christmas decorations😍
Then I added my grandma's glass cake stand in the center.
Then I added a small wood slice to give my little vignette different levels.
I've had the Putz houses for a long time, I picked out just the white ones for this centerpiece and added in some white bottle brush trees, a larger feather tree, and the snow!
Then I added some white candles, a paper book tree, and a tiny snowman on the table beside the vignette.
And then sprinkled the snow all around.
I love how it turned out!
I also added a shelf and vintage coat hooks on the wall next to my free-form plate display. I found the coat hooks at a garage sale with the intention of using it in my antique booth to display things but as it sometimes happens... I thought it looked better in my house!! Ha ha!
It's just a piece of old molding with some old hooks screwed into it, I think I paid $1 for it. I like the rustic look it has. I hung a pretty floral decoration and my childhood stocking on it 😄
The '25' numbers are just paper mache numbers from Hobby Lobby that I painted white and then glittered, the wreath is made from large pom-poms glued to an embroidery hoop, the little fire truck was a yard sale find last year. I filled a jar with old red Christmas lights, and the tree is a new Tuesday Morning find.
I'll show more decor pictures soon, have you gotten any decorating done yet?
