Winter Decor

 How was your Christmas?  Mine went by way too quickly!  My parent's stayed with us on Christmas Eve and we had homemade chicken noodle soup for dinner.  My brother and his family came for Christmas morning and we had breakfast sandwiches and cinnamon rolls.  Fischer was so much fun opening presents this year!  I took my Christmas decorations down on Monday and my house always feels so naked afterwards.   
Have no fear, I decorate for New Years/Winter.  I went to JoAnn's today to see what kind of sales they were having.  All Christmas stuff was on sale for 75% off.  I got these electric candles and knew that I needed to put together a winter vignette for my coffee table. 
The candles are a pretty white that fades down into silver.  I put them on my silver rhinestone tray.  I also picked up some wintery picks and took them apart to decorate around the candles. 
Big snowballs, little snowballs and snowflakes all covered in glitter.  What's not to love?  My coffee table is decked out and ready for my least favorite month of the year-January. 
My mantle got a makeover too.  I love decorating my mantle for each and every season and New Years/Winter is no different.  See the big white alarm clock in the middle?  Cody got me that for Christmas and I knew it would be perfect for a New Years Eve vignette. 
Aqua, white and silver are the perfect color for winter.  I added the 3 new Eiffel Towers that I got this year into the mix.   
My New Years Eve party hats are still one of my most favorite things that I have made.  They look perfect year after year. 
I love the way this tray looks dripping with aqua beads and pretty snowflake candles.  Can you see why I love this color so much?! 
I love my mantle and even though I use the same elements each year to decorate it, I place them differently and give it a completely different look. 
And I always hang my burlap winter banner, just in case the freezing cold weather doesn't remind us that it is really winter out there! 
Have I ever mentioned that I am a complete klutz?  Well, I am!  On Christmas morning, I was going to the door and ran into 2 boxes of tile with my little toe.  Going full speed of course.  My poor little toe was sheet white in the beginning and then you could see the bruise starting to form.  The night after Christmas, I ran into the corner of my bed and it hurt even more.  It got so swollen that you couldn't see the bruise and I couldn't wear shoes.  I am limping around and trying my best not to re-injure it.  But isn't my bruise so pretty?!  It's even bigger now!  So you see, I am a major klutz! 
Do you have any plans for New Years Eve?  We will probably go to dinner, go to the dollar store and buy some junk food and then try our best to stay up until midnight.  We lead such an exciting life!  Have a Happy New Year!

Your silver tray with the candles is a perfect touch for winter. I love the mantle and the new clock and party hats are perfect! I actually have an entire tote that says winter décor. Have not had a moment to even pull it out. Last year I decorated my mantle for New Years, but this year I think it will just get a winter theme. OUCH! sorry about your foot! I am a bit of a klutz as well. Thanks for sharing with SYC. See you in the New Year! :)
hugs,

I love your wintry décor, especially your coffee table vignette and the aqua on your mantle! Careful, Girl, a banged up foot is not the way to start the new year. :/ Wishing you a happy and SAFE new year!!

I am sorry to say this, but I am glad to know that I am not the only klutz out there. But, to bump it twice - OUCH!

I have all the Christmas decor put away except the mantel. I like your idea of the clock and will use it as inspiration for my mantel tomorrow.

Merry Christmas.

Love your mantel and all your beautiful winter decor. Ouch, I can sure feel your pain and I sure hope the swelling has gone down by now. Thanks so much for stopping by to share at our first Talk of the Town party.
