Christmas 2013 Living Room Coffee Table Vignette

Today I added fresh pine and cedar to our Christmas decor including the coffee table arrangement in our living room.


Our living room has been decorated for over a week now, but I was waiting for today to add the greenery so that it doesn't dry out too soon.


For the coffee table vignette I used the colours, textures and themes that I am using throughout our living room this Christmas: fresh greenery and pine cones, stars, mercury glass, silver, white, cream, brown and grey. I lined the charcoal grey wood tray with a white vintage cutwork linen piece and then added pine cones, white wood stars, large mercury glass balls, medium shiny silver balls, clear blown glass vase fillers and a mix of small white, silver and cream ball ornaments.


Small ball ornaments were also added to the pair of lanterns along with a shiny silver bell hanging from the top, repeating the balls and bells theme used on the tree and throughout the room.


I love how the tree lights reflect off the ornaments (but not so much how they reflect the photographer lol.) It is fun and challenging to decorate our home using mostly the same decorations as last year and creating different vignettes. I'm really happy with how this one turned out. Our living room is fully decorated and now I just need to get some time and light to take photos so I can share it all.

  2. Very pretty! I love the reflective quality of mercury glass mixed with natural elements. I've got a big ole' mess of Christmas decor strewn all over my house. I hope I can finish my decorating by tomorrow night. I can't wait to see your finished room!

  11. The mixture of textures is perfect!
    I LOVE the color combination you are using, Elizabeth. Mercury glass, and whites are my favorites. I like that you added the stars.
    Did you ever watch the movie "Beetlejuice"? If you did..remember the head shrinker at the end of the movie? That's what your reflection in the bulbs reminds me of..lol. If you didn't see the movie...never mind. haha.
