~ Chocolate and Oranges ~

Hello everyone, I hope you had a fabulous weekend.

The Chocolate covered ottoman in the front room is always a fun area to decorate. Last year I used the Chocolate Santa in the same area, just a different setting. You can see those pictures HERE. I love to reuse my favorites in different ways.
When I started decorating the silver tray I used this beautiful vintage green dish. I liked it, then realized I needed a larger bowl. With the size of the tray I felt a little more presence was needed.
Shopping the house I remembered this beautiful dish that normally sits in the entertainment center bookshelf in my office.

I've had the Cinnamon Clove Oranges for many years, I knew this year I wanted to use them in this area of our home.  Adding a few pine cones and greenery put the finishing touches on a beautiful bowl.
I like to leave things out through the Holidays that have personal meaning to me. After all that's what Christmas decorating is all about isn't it? Bringing memories to the surface to make you smile and make your heart sing.

I brought the small silver cup in from the kitchen, added the crystal orb for a bit of bling. :-))

I'm so glad you came by, I enjoy all of your visits.
