Don't Forget to Look Up!

I'm waiting for some sun outside so I can photograph Christmas decor, but did want to share one little thing.  Don't neglect your light fixtures when decorating for Christmas! 

I love just a touch of greenery and sparkle to draw your eye up and continue the festive setting.   

Disclaimer:  Those are real cedar clippings...I know that they will stay green but it's an experiment to see what will happen to them as they dry out.  I don't THINK they are a fire hazard but we'll keep an eye on them!

I shared my candle cover dilemma with you in this post, and here you see that I decided to go dark with them (for now!).  In the past I have wrapped fake garlands around the lights, but wanted to freshen things up a bit this year.  I cut sprigs off the end of cedar branches and just laid them in place-no wiring or anything, just worked with them until they stayed put.   

A few other inspiration pics that are totally doable...

I saw something like this at Anthropology, they had just used a jillion clear glass balls and hung them together with string.  Super cool.

You know I love this one...anything with a branch!

Look up!  What little bit of sparkle can you add to your lighting?

  1. I thought I was done decorating! I think I'll make a quick trip outside for some greenery and spiff up my dining room chandelier! :) Thanks!
