Chandelier Transformation & Silver in the Dining Room

Pin It

ike last year, I jazzed up the chandelier with some bayleaf swags from PB. Unlike last year's chandelier transformation, I left off the angel ornaments and instead added a bayleaf kissing ball in the center. I realize this will require leaning over the table to be underneath it, but what the heck...kiss away!! I won't peek!!

Did you notice this one Christmas tree is elevated on a vintage Christmas tree stand? This is same stand that I used as a champagne server in my Elegant Junky Holiday post last December. {Related post: 5 Ways to Repurpose a Christmas Tree Stand over at Junkologie!}

This pair of solid silver candlesticks and the five-piece solid silver coffee & tea set are gracing the tea cart in the corner. Yes, I know, I know...not a coffee drinker, not a tea drinker...why have a tea cart or a coffee/tea set? Heck, I don't really know what to say to that. I guess it's just that the patina is fabulous!! I'm very relaxed in a lot of my decor, but I love some formal details mixed in. Aren't the lines on those candlesticks divine?

One lump or two? Sugar cubes...not coal in your stocking!! Well, I guess that depends if you've been as good as you say you've been this year. I'll call Santa to check the list!!
