One More Holiday Decor Post

Just one more... just 'cause.

I wanted a lot of sparkle and shine around Falconhead.  Remember my DIY glitter candles?  Well they are currently residing on my shelf with my new favorite thing ever- my mercury glass candle holders from Party Lite

I also added in some trimmings from our tree, as well as the stockings holders I snagged last year from Freecycle

Ooooo... so many sparkles.  Happiness :)

I also added in a couple votive candles from IKEA

My spray painted pinecones from last year made a triumphant return.  You know I love to mix my metalics.

I also put together a quick centerpiece using a vintage bowl leftover from the wedding, a silver serving platter that was a wedding gift, tree trimmings, some leaves left over from my chargers, and extra Christmas balls

This bowl was easily my favorite.  I'm glad it made it's way back to us :)

And finally, the Christmas tree.  Our ornaments are pretty standard (cheapy vintage Walmart), but I love our tree.  The shape is so perfect.   Loves.

Oh yeah, and that adorbs rocking horse?  Thats for my niece Skybaby.  Can't wait to get it out of my house give it to her.

Any last minute decor at your place?

Always & Forever,

Ornaments are taking over my house. I seem to jam them in every vase or jar that I can get my hands on. I can't help myself!

Your centerpiece is way too fabulous!

Cool stuff! That rocking horse is really cute, I think your niece will love it!
I also love the margarita glass vase in the below post. That arrangement looks so pretty!
Happy Christmas!

I was wondering if JEGS had requested the rocking horse...I wasn't going to judge, but it did make for an awesome picture in my mind for a second. :)

Merry Christmas, Lizzie!

I LOVE the mantle! The reds look great. And the glitter candle is such a creative idea. My mom got a Christmas candle with red sequins on it, and I love the way it looks. Never thought of doing it yourself though! Great idea!

I have those IKEA votives! Love them! I desperately want those PartyLite candle holders... I wonder if my social S-I-L knows anybody who sells...
