More Holiday Decorating

While I truly love modern decor, for me, the holidays are a time to throw all minimalism out the window.  Today's post features unusual places I've found to add holiday embellishments in my home.

Finally, I am getting around to posting a photo of the console I wrote about receiving!!  Here it is in my dining room:
I absolutely love it, but I am absolutely not a photographer and those mirrors make taking photos without my reflection really difficult!

More apothecary jars with holiday contents adorn the top.  A mirror hung in the window provides a focal point with a beaded wreath hung inside. 
(A gift from friends - thanks Eddy family!)
 A simple stick with mirrored ornaments adds festive flair to the sideboard.
 Poinsettias and greenery in a metal entertaining bucket spruce up yet another mirror in the dining room. 

The kitchen is the heart of holiday entertaining, so why not give it a Christmas makeover too?
Fun holiday plates in a glass fronted cabinet 
(Thanks, Laura and Barbara!).
Garland accents on the pendant lights and more holiday plates above the cabinets.
More greenery draped along a curtain rod gives a holiday glow.
Simple sprays of Christmas greens in mercury glass urns give a cheerful accent to the piano.
Here's a fun way to display holiday cards:
Disclaimer:  This photo was taken early in the season; please do not be offended if you do not see your card pictured.  I have put them all on display, I promise!!

 This is just another garland with added greenery.  I used the wired branches to hold the cards.

And don't forget the Christmas tree!
We have a very traditional tree with lots of sentimental and handmade ornaments with fun glittery accents.

Happy Holidays, Everyone!
