a holly jolly entertainment center

So I have tweeked my little garland to perfection, had a few moments of actual sun, and a moment to snap a shot or two.

No tutorial..just a snipet of the finished garland. I think I am too impatient to take pictures step by step...but let's be honest, I think it is more because my time is sooo limited {especially with daylight}.

Here is what I ended up with:

I found a cheap garland with some faux pine, pinecones, and holly berry. I added a few more pinecones {plain & glittery}, some white Christmas lights, some leftover red ornaments, and some willow.

Excuse the alcohol commercial. This must be the Bravo channel.

I am quite pleased with the red. Now all I need to do is put up the tree. What other decor elements do you have on your Christmas to do list?



  1. I love the garland, so beautiful. I really love the red, and I never do red...hmmm I just might need to after seeing yours!

  2. This is stunning! Love it! I am trying to declutter and decorate...and make some new decorations. Not thrilled with how the kitchen is looking these days....too cluttered on a daily basis by 4 kids...and am thinking, why bother putting more things! :) Can't wait to add that butter dish to the mix though...that won't be clutter, but a great piece of beauty. :) Hope all is well with you, and that your rotations are going well!!

  3. It looks perfect! I love, love, love the pine cones!

  4. BEAUTIFUL! I'm in love with your decor thus far, good job babe! I can't wait to photograph and blog about my decor (I'm 95% done)!

  5. I love the willow that you added behind. It really adds dimension to the whole thing. Today I'm going to get to work on my front porch. Can you believe I still have mini pumpkins out there? Bad!

  6. What a beautiful garland, I love the traditional colors and items from nature. Yesterday I bought a little garland from Michael's and looked for some at Goodwill. After seeing your post, I am really in a garland mood! Thank you ♥

  7. Wow! I love the garland, the willow added in is great! I'm working on the decor in the kitchen today and after seeing your garland I need to re-think my plain one!!


  8. Love it! I like the pine cones and the pop of red.
    left to do? Only the Christmas tree.

  9. Love the garland...maybe one day I'll decorate again! Next year, next year. And the mantel will be a good place to start since Olivia won't be able to reach that!

  10. Beautiful garland...I so need to finish my decorating:)


  11. A very pretty garland, looks great against the black shelf.

  12. I love it! It looks so great on the shelf! Nicely done!


Thank you for visiting my little corner of the world. Your comments make my day a little brighter, so know I treasure each one. Thank you!
