Crystal, Reindeer and Angels

Not long ago I showed a few pictures from the garden center I visited just after Thanksgiving.  They also have a Christmas section that I always find something at.

There was a large chandelier with ornaments hanging from it so I bit the bullet and bought a few pieces to create my own.  I wanted an all crystal look.

I was going to use ribbons like this but I don't have that much space to work with so I decided not to bother.

I used a short garland made with pine needles to start with. I draped it around like a wreath.  Then I topped it with another short garland made with a stick like material and heavily coated with a chunky glittery silver finish.  Then I added another layer with these jingle bell strands. I hooked on the crystal ornaments below  
and that's it!

The lighting is driving me crazy- I just can't get the look I want.


I bought the snowflake tablecloth on mark down a couple of years ago and lost track of it.  When I found it this year I decided it was going to be my backdrop for this arrangement.

This is a silver mercury glass bowl I've used for several years.  The ornaments are a collection I've been building from Pottery Barn for a while.  

The two silver mercury glass vases have been with me a while.  I put candle rings at the bottom that match the one layer on the chandelier.  I put two arrangements of red amaryllis, holly and pine boughs.
I decided to put the reindeer on here this year instead of grouping them with the Santa sleigh.



Angels
 This area is beautified with lots of angels!

 This angel has been with me since the days of the Bombay furniture stores.  I think I got this in 2006.  Still miss them!

 This one is new- she caught my eye.

This is my other poinsettia that I picked up at the garden center.  I love red- can you tell!! This large Angel piece looks good with a glowing candle but this year I popped the poinsettia in there and I liked how it looked.  I'll probably do this again next year.

 All this resides on the built in cabinet that divides the room where we added on in 1996.

There you have my crystal, reindeer and angels!

  7. It felt very warm and cozy visiting you today. I don't have a chandelier, but if I did you can bet it would be decorated.

  8. Liz,
    I love your chandelier, dear friend!!!
    I agree, they are difficult to photograph.
    (I've found the best time of day is just before dinner. . .between 5~6PM.)
    I adore the poinsettia within the ring of angels!!!
