Winter Decor on Etagere Shelves

Before Christmas, I purposely decorated my etagere shelves with a snow themed vibe so that it could serve for both the holiday season and for a winter look afterwards. 


Let me take you on a shelf by shelf tour.

Top shelf

This "Let it Snow" sign was the inspiration for the winter themed look. I placed a set of decorative skis beside it on the top shelf.

A glass tree and a ceramic deer head candleholder sit to one side.

Little flocked trees, an acrylic tree and another deer head sit on the other side.

Here's the full view again and we'll move to the next shelf below.

The 2nd shelf

A snow family are playing winter sports on this shelf with Junior on the toboggan.

Dad has his skis and is ready to hit the slopes.

Mom is thinking about going ice skating.

I placed a snowy tree picture as a backdrop to the snow family shelf.

The 3rd shelf

This Holiday Ski Lodge signs sits centerstage on this shelf.

An acrylic deer and tree sit on each side of the sign.

Let's head to the bottom shelf now.

Moose, trees and a snowman create a winter scene here.

This snowman is all bundled up against the cold.

White ceramic moose sit on each side of the snowman.

Buffalo snow adds to the wintry look.

The full view again

We've had all kinds of winter weather recently so my dual purpose decorating has served me well and I'll definitely be able to leave it up for awhile yet.

New Year's Eve Tablescape

Happy New Year! 
The years seem to fly by faster and faster and now we are even starting a new decade.  I'm looking forward to all that 2020 has to offer.   Of course, I had to design a table that ushers in the new decade in style and I hope you enjoy seeing the details.



I went with a frosty look which would also work well for a festive winter tablescape.

Cylinder vases were filled with little disco ball ornaments and topped with a decoration that reminds me of fireworks.

The vases were interspersed along a frosty sage green coloured garland. 

Larger disco ball ornaments were tucked in the garland.

I also wove a strand of fairy lights in the garland to add a bit more sparkle at night.

The garland was set on a silver snowflake embellished table runner.

The place settings were done in silver and white.

I attached a disco ball ornament to a snowflake napkin ring to add some New Year's bling.

I did a bow-tie style napkin fold but turned it sideways for a different look.

Stainless steel flatware went perfectly with the colour scheme.

I filled little spice jars with coordinating greenery and silver berries and these hold the placecards.

A wine glass and a champagne flute stand ready for the festivities.

Did you stay home or go out for New Year's Eve?  We did a bit of both with Mr Delight preparing a yummy steak and crab dinner and then we went out with friends.


Wishing you all the best in 2020!
