Winter centerpiece

Remember I told you I was ready for a fresh, peaceful decorating scheme? Well, I'm still on a roll. I took my Christmas centerpiece off my dining table and added a simple display.

First, I started with a silver tray I got as a wedding present 29 years ago.

I topped it with a new lantern my sister-in-law gave me for Christmas. It has a battery operated candle in it. So cute! I added a pewter candle stick with a grapevine napkin ring, a small clear glass votive holder, and a special framed picture. I love the framed picture. Up on a shelf, it can't be appreciated for it's beauty. It is a photo of the sun shining through the woods. Below the photo is a blessing and a verse. I've listed them below.

May God's love enfold you,
may His light surround you,
may His peace fill you and guide you on your way.
"The Lord bless thee and keep thee." Numbers 6:24

  1. Very nicely arranged and nicely photographed you are obviously very artistic. In the photos the background colors are muted and pleasing and you opened up your lens to get minimum Depth of Field so the background was soft and did not compete for the attention of the viewer. GREAT JOB.

    I just stopped by to say "Hi" since you are one of the followers to my photography blog. Hope it's not too late to wish you a GREAT 2010.



I'd love to know what you're thinking. Please feel free to leave ideas and comments.
