To me, each Christmas season not only gives me the spiritual aspects but creativity as well.
I love this festive season because of the lights, the food, the people, and a chance to challenge my decorating skills.
The latest I made this year is my dining table centerpiece for Christmas. I used my antique glass pastry plate, some red ribbon, Brush Christmas tree ornaments and the Nativity crèche I bought from Jerusalem. It becomes even more symbolic putting the crèche in the center of the table.
I also happened to have a pair of my old candles from the Norwegian Christmas market and my old table runner I got from HongKong a while back.
For the hallway, I used a garland I found in a Scandinavian House Christmas sale, and glass ornaments from other stores I do not remember and white acorns to depict icy cold winters by the entrance hallway. Below, I also found a garland of pearls to depict snow on top of a garland if greens and laurel leaves.
I used the snowman to hover over the #waterford crèche laid on top of the mirror with the 3 Kings that followed the star that led them to baby Jesus. All the warmth of wood in a darker entrance gives light using a lot of glass and mirrors to set the happy spirit of Christmas.
When I decorate for Christmas, I have reasons for what and why I position objects. It’s beginning to look more like Christmas!
Have a Merry Holiday to all!
