|I finished decorating the formal dining room sideboard today. Some people call it a buffet.....some a sideboard. Since I am not going to serve food on it, I am going to call it a sideboard. |
|I chose to decorate the sideboard with white, pink, green, and even some pops of red......yes, I said red!|
|I don't normally use much red and green in my decorating. I'm kind of a pastel girl.....|
|But this year I decided to see if I could "marry" some colors that aren't usually used together.|
So far, I'm pleased with the look, But.....I guess we'll see how I feel when the whole room is done. This is a large room with a dining table at one end and a sofa and chairs at the other end.
I don't think that I ever used strings of lights on the sideboard before. I remember thinking....how will I ever cover those ugly cords? Well, I strung my lights and didn't worry about the cords showing.
I put them on the sideboard, on the bottom of the large white frame that hangs on the deer heads, and I also put them on the white wreaths around the deer's necks.
|I have a herd of vintage plastic deer prancing across the white picture frame|
|I also have some running thru the flowers|
|I have a Spode cheese platter, a red Cherry and Cable cookie/cracker jar, and some floral plates on the buffet.|
|The newest additions to my Christmas dinnerware are some pieces of Cuthberson. These dishes are made in England and blend very well with my Spode dishes.|
|I bought several pieces at the auction this past summer and will use them in my Christmas tablescape. ...which I will show you later...lol!|
|This is a Cherry and Cable butter dish that belonged to my mother and in the background you can see the matching water pitcher.|
|Harley has been hanging over the buffet for a couple of years now......|
|Last year he was all alone.....|
