It's never the same decor. Sometimes I like alot of live greenery. I used to use Holly because we had a big Holly tree out back, but that got dug out when we made some renovations. There are some other greens out there but this year my heart is set on going with white and silver. And a desire to keep it simple and use only what I have already in my decorations box.
I love the frosty Angel.
Some lacy for the top and twinkly white lights to start!
And I just kept layering all my favorite white or silver things until I was contented.
Some pretty white pointsetta, some ribbon in silver,
A sparkling silver candle in my cut glass dish... rimmed that with pearls.
And for the other side another cut glass dish and a small package from the dollar store all silvery, with a silver gift box tucked into it, and some baubles.
At the bottom I used my mom's Antique wash basin and pitcher, filled with ribbon and pointsetta!
Simple candles and a gift bag, so sparkly
I love how it looks, I just have to add the Nativity set...
My mom bought this for me a very long time ago. It is from Avon.
I have always cherished this!
I usually put it in the manger that my mom used when I was a little kid. I just changed it for this design.
And one other tradition, my mom never put the baby Jesus in the manger, until Christmas morning.
