Christmas in July…

With the temperatures in the 90’s I couldn’t help but think about Christmas…Sounds crazy, right?   What better way to escape the repressing heat than to daydream about crystal icicles, frosted snowflakes, shiny orbs, sparkling beads and glittery pine cones.

My Christmas Sideboard

This year my husband I decided we would decorate with our existing decorations.  We have boxes and boxes of decorations that we have collected over the years. We also have a wonderful variety of everyday objects we have collected that can easily be incorporated into our holiday decor.  I decided to take a little bit of this and a little bit of that to decorate my Christmas sideboard.

A little greenery!  I purchased this pre-lit winter garland several years ago.  For a couple of years it graced our fireplace mantel.  Then for a couple of years it welcomed friends and family as it hung over our front door.  Now the garland has landed on our dining room sideboard.  I am so thankful the lights are still working!

A little bit of glass! A couple of vintage birds have landed on the Christmas Sideboard along with a sugar bowl and a couple of vintage dessert cups.

A little sparkle!  Glittery pinecones, crystal snowflakes, a large mercury glass ornament that has lost its hanger and a yard find birdcage.

The decor was missing something until I saw the crystal cake stand in the panty and the glittery butterflies landed on the birdcage.  Then Voila a beautiful Christmas sideboard was laid out without purchasing so much as a pine cone.
