When I needed a place to perch the decorated crate, the entryway table was the natural choice, as it would keep the "snow" away from the dog and cat.
The vintage truck makeover inspired the whole color scheme and vintage vibe.
When I put the crate on my table, it needed to be accessorized with more wintery items. So, I went looking for things to put with it. A white runner was too summery; a burlap one was too plain. I finally settled on this fun red and white plaid table cloth that I have had for years.
Next came the side opposite the crate. On their last trip to DFW, my mom had brought me this adorable puffy red star as a souvenir from a cute little shop in Amarillo called Lizzie Mae's. (If you are ever in that area, stop by that shop! It is chock-full of adorable home decor items and gifts!)
Anyway, I set it down in front of the lamp, but the area looked a little skimpy. A trip to Target proved successful when I was able to find some greenery and this adorable birch star lantern. I set it up on a rustic candleholder and arranged all my goodies.
I had gotten plenty of the green branches, so I put some on top of the crate to hide the wires from the lights. A cute little white lantern with a red/white gingham ribbon finished it off just right.
Finally, hanging in front of the mirror is a little burlap wreath I made. It was my first try at making one of these and I love how it turned out. The red poinsettia, as well as the red/white plaid "H" ornament (also from Target), added the pop of color I wanted. I'll be helping about 25 ladies make these easy wreaths on Sunday night at a Ladies Christmas Dinner. I'm hoping it goes smoothly. Wish me luck!
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed the little tour around my entry table ;-) I'm still putting the finishing touches on Christmas decorating around the house... How about you? Is your house all ready for the Christmas season?
