Christmas Decor

     I was so inspired by the post I shared earlier this week on Christmas center piece inspiration that I spruced my own up. Sometimes it takes a little inspiration to get those creative juices flowing!

     I've had this arrangement for a couple of years now and I still like it but wanted to change it up a bit. Adding a tray and some extra decor from around the house was just the trick!

It was lonely before:

     I was challenged this year to come up with decor for my hutch shelves. I painted the background aqua this year and the old red and green decor just didn't look the same with that background {yuck!}.

     This year we moved the red and green to other areas of the house {here's last year's version} and focused more on silver plus brought a few aqua tones in as well. Flipping my books backwards keeps the tones neutral allowing that aqua to pop. I will say that flipping the books around was a little unsettling for my husband but I assured him all would be restored after Christmas! {Men~sometimes they just don't get the whole decor thing!}

  Things still have to serve their purpose and that basket with things peaking out is where we dump cell phones, keys, receipts and any other pocket treasures. My husband was glad I was still able to incorporate his antlers, but I like them glammed up a bit more! ;)

   I will be back this weekend with ideas for the outdoor Christmas decor from my porch!
