It’s Day 7 – Holiday Decor Ideas!


My entertainment center (an old buffet of my grandma’s) is one of my very favorite pieces. I know I mention “favorites” a lot but this piece never fails but to make my heart flutter.

It deserved some holiday cheer!

I used one of my plaid throws to add the colors I wanted to the space.

From there, my beautiful old oil lamp of my grandparents’ got center stage.

My new wreaths came in from outside my home and hung on either side to create some symmetry and another splash of red! I had a whole bunch of extra pine cones left over both from my wreaths and from my ornaments so I put them to work here too.

From there I used cotton as “snow” across my mantel up to my mom’s angel that my uncle hand carved and painted many years ago.

I also made a purchase of a short string of twinkling lights off of Amazon to run along in my “snow”.

As always my grumpy Santa joins the party as well.

All in, I am officially in the mood for some apple cider and the holidays!

    What a cute buffet! I am a huge fan of anything plaid so I am loving the idea of using a scarf for decor!

    Your buffet is beautiful! Adding that plaid throw with the pine cones and the lamp is all you need to make it look festive 🙂
