Silver & Gold Holiday Wreath

This is the third and final wall in the entry way to get the gold and silver treatment for the holidays.    You last saw this wreath a couple of Thanksgivings ago above the buffet in the dining room.   I brought it out of retirement and added a few more vintage silver balls and a few other "pretties".
I hung my gold and silver wreath above the harp table in the entry.   
I added some pearls and other vintage jewelry to the existing wreath,,,,,
I didn't glue my vintage jewelry to the wreath as I don't want to take a chance of ruining anything....I just laid them around in between the balls.
I chose my best silver set for the vignette.   For a little whimsy,  I topped the biggest silver teapot with a gold crown.
I added some bling to the Santas.....
I laid a vintage bracelet on Santa's hat....
and one of my rhinestone bracelets....
to this Santa's hat.  
If you want a closer look at the vignette to the left,  click here..... 
I love the nativity in the O in joy.....after all... that's the reason for the season!
If you want a closer look at the vignette on the opposite wall that you can see reflecting in the left side of  the here....

My next project is to add some Christmas cheer to the kitchen....see you soon!

  3. Your wreath is so beautiful Penny! I love all of the Christmas decor!

  4. Stopping by from the One Project at a Time link party. This is quite the wreath...I think it would also look great featured at a gold and silver New Year's Eve event. Thanks so much for sharing!

  5. Penny, that wreath is magnificent! I love that you have added bling to the Santas...
    Have a wonderful week.

  6. The wreath is amazing, wonderful, fantastic!!!!

  7. Penny,
    I love everything that you did to the entryway. It's gorgeous and stunning. I wish I could see more of the silver tree. You are making me want to put out my Christmas decorations now but I will wait until Thanksgiving week.

  8. It's so interesting how you begin to bring out the Christmas cheer and yet stay in keeping with the Thanksgiving Holiday.
    The stores do why can't we? I am getting started on my tree's this year. I even have the gardner scheduled to put up the lights on the BIG Redwood tree's in the front yard. Next week...:) Can't wait.
    The song "Silver and Gold" Christmas song goes through my head when I look at all your beautiful and stunning silver and gold decor. I love it, Penny!!

  9. Penny, I meant to ask your home on any of the Home Tours they have at Christmas? How I would have loved to have visited a home like yours instead of the ones, that were lovely but just not half as interesting and intricately decorated with such attention to detail and so many unusual idea's. What a treat visiting yours would be.

  10. Penny that wreath is gorgeous! I love how you have laid the beautiful pieces of jewelry throughout it. The bling on Santa dresses him up fine. You have a wonderful knack for putting things together! Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  11. Your gold wreath is stunning! Thank you for linking up to the VIP party.

  12. Gorgeous ! Love the wreath and all your decorating !

  13. I'm like everyone else and think the wreath you made is just fabulously divine.

  14. silver and gold. Thanks for sharing on the Thursday Blog hop!

  15. I love the ornament wreath but I am so afraid to try making one. It's that "afraid to fail" thing. All of your decor is lovely!
