You know how it is when you are looking for something and discover something you weren’t even looking for. That is how the accidental coffee table came together.
I was looking for ribbon to make a bow for the guest room swan, when I ran across the small mercury glass ornaments in the ribbon storage container. That gave me an idea that led to additional ideas. A Christmas coffee table arrangement was born.
When we were preparing for the move, we donated our Christmas trees. When we were settled in our new home and saw what kind of room we will have for Christmas decorating, we ordered two new trees. One for the TV room and one for the great room.
When the new trees arrived, yesterday, we put them together to make sure they were okay and the lights work. I’m glad we did because the great room tree provided wonderful Bokeh effects for these photos.
The green silk orchid tied with plaid ribbon, mercury glass trees and tray of mercury glass ornaments give a hint of things to come in the great room.
The trees will be decorated nearer Thanksgiving…maybe sooner.
A mantel plan is underway.
