Christmas 2016: Soft & Pretty Lantern Centerpieces

I am diligently working on decorating my living and dining rooms for Christmas and am almost finished, the only thing that I have left to do is to put the white Christmas tree up (and I *might* have a thought in my head to make a new burlap wreath for between the windows in the dining room—that thought has not fully developed yet though…haha). 😉  In this little post, I want to share a few arrangements that I’ve made for these rooms, one large lantern centerpiece for the dining room table, one arrangement that I made to go around a lamp on my sideboard and then one smaller lantern centerpiece for the living room.  As y’all know, I always try to incorporate softer color tones into these more formal, yet country looking rooms.  So you’ll see a lot of light greens, blues, silvers, and whites…so soft and pretty.  I have made a YouTube tutorial video to show y’all how I put these three beauties together and I’ll post that link below.  First though, here are some pictures:

This is lantern centerpiece that I made for the dining room table:

The arrangement that I made to go around Mooney’s (my Grandma) lamp on the sideboard:

And a picture of both arrangements:

And last but not least, a picture of the small lantern centerpiece that sits on the small living room table:

Sophie was helping me too… ;):

And here is a link to my YouTube tutorial:

I’m so glad that I have climbed out of my “traditional red, burgundy, gold, Christmas box” for these rooms as I really do enjoy the lighter, airier, and softer tones that I’ve incorporated.  I hope upon hope that I have given one or two of you a new and different idea for your own Christmas decorating. 🙂

Until next time, y’all take good care! ❤
