Salty Sister Decorates - Christmas Table Vignette

Welcome and thank you for stopping by.  I love Christmas and Christmas decorations.  I am thankful to the ladies that are hosting the link parties this year.  At the bottom of this post are the links for more beautiful decorations.

One thing to know about this Salty Sister is I'm slow when it comes to adding Christmas decorations.  If it wasn't for these linky parties and my desire to participate, I probably wouldn't have much done yet.  They are motivation to help me get it done!

I love decorated homes and I can get into decorating but I'm kind of slow.  Took me all day yesterday to do this table.   I start off with only a vague idea of what I am going to do and then it's like putting puzzle pieces together.

I kept adding things but it felt like I was fighting with it, my decorating philosophy is when you have to force something to work, it's not working.  So once I realized that, it was time to start taking things away.

One thing I love about decorating for Christmas is that I feel like I have permission to use glitter and girls I do love glitter!  I also love velvet and rich opulent fabrics and shiny, sparkly things.

Rejoice in the Lord always.  I will say it again: Rejoice!  Let your gentleness be evident to all.  The Lord is near.  Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in christ Jesus.

I pray you have peace that surpasses all understanding this Christmas.

Merry Christmas.

Jerri- This is really a lovely vignette- I like that you incorporated the nativity with the use of fabrics to make it all seem so lush. Love the blues and the browns and the mercury glass. Your mantel is gorgeous, as well. Nice and full, tastefully done. Visiting from both parties....

I am having so much fun reading everybody's decorating posts. So many great ideas. What I pulled out of yours is to put the nativity low on a table. I seriously would have never thought of that. Mine is rather simple compared to yours but you really have me rethinking. I figure by Christmas Eve i should just about be done tweaking. :)
Lovely really.
