I was so depressed about taking down my Christmas decorations that I turned Monday into a “get things done” marathon. I went a little crazy making our apartment homey…
One of my goals for 2017 is to decorate my apartment, but I don’t think the intent was to do the entire thing in one day. I’m pretty sure Stephen wanted me to “power down” around 11:30.
While I didn’t accomplish everything on my list, but I did manage to create this super cute winter centerpiece. It’s not Christmas but still has a winterish feel.
We received this marble and glass cheese dome as a wedding present and I’m totally obsessed with it. It currently is holding candles and not cheese, but I just love the elegance it adds to my table. I put it on top of this lazy susan that we also got as a wedding present.
I stopped by Hobby Lobby and got three white candles in various sizes. Then I took a trip to their floral department (they’re having a sale right now, by the way!) and picked up fake moss, cotton, and pinecones. After arranging them on the marble platter, I made sure the dome fit over all my items then used the extra on the surrounding surface.
I paired my centerpiece with some cool tones for winter. I just love using wedding presents can you tell?
Then this was the finished product:
Not Christmas, but less painful than having a totally empty, Spode-less table.
How are you recovering during this post-Christmas period? What new decor are you adding to your home?
