Decorating with Silver and Gold for Christmas

I started packing away some of the Halloween decor this morning..........I  don't really decorate a lot for what's a girl supposed to do with all that empty space?    Well,   this girl decided to put out a few Christmas!

I have wanted to make a silver Christmas tree for several years,   so I pulled out my stash of silver and started to build my tree.  
I added some bows, fabric roses,  and chandelier crystals to some of the silver "tree limbs"
I also added some pearls and silver and gold beaded garland to my silver tree   On the mirrored tabletop I have a crystal chandelier arm....s....for Santa.
My Santa is a recent purchase from Hobby Lobby.  I thought his black Santa suit was gorgeous......
Who could resist this sweet face...not me!   
Next to my Santa,  I have a 6' slim white Christmas tree.
I decorated it with silver pieces,  deer heads......
The reason for the season.....
I also hung a few chandelier crystals on the tree.

Speaking of may remember the three new ones I bought at the yard sales and auction last Saturday.   Well,  one of them was hung in the entry over my silver tree.
This vignette is in the entry...on your left...just as you come in the front door.    I hung a heart wreath on the wall across from it that you can see reflecting in the mirror.    There is a large white cabinet next to the heart wreath that I will decorate for Christmas in a few days.    I am going to carry on with the gold and silver theme.....should I add a touch of pink.....we'll see!

I started digging things out this afternoon..and it's all because you have inspired me ..and boy, did I need some inspiration. It's all going to be just beautiful! :)
