Let me show you how I put together a special holiday living room table vignette.
February, being the month of love, with Valentine's Day on the 14th, I am naturally drawn to hearts, flowers, and the color, pink.
On the coffee table that used to be my mother's, I placed a mauve and gold colored cloth my daughter bought for me in Italy. It's lovely and one of my favorite decorations.
A pink vase came down from a shelf to hold a bouquet of silk, pink and cream colored roses. It has thin ribbons in pink and green hanging down from it. This bouquet is old and came very close to being tossed in the Goodwill box but sentimental attachment prevented me from letting it go. (I know, I know. One day I must let things go but not yet. ha!)
Next, my sweet boy and girl sculptures were gently lifted from the mantel. (Read how they were acquired here: Thursday, May 27, 2010.)
