Several weeks ago, I shared a simple Thanksgiving Centerpiece that anyone could put together. I used a few candlesticks, an artificial fall garland, and real pumpkins. It took 2 minutes. And then I shared another Thanksgiving centerpiece look using traditional fall colors. That one was also simple but was a little more elaborate. Since we are are in full-on Christmas mode, I wanted to do another look on the dining room table for the new season. This look isn’t actually a centerpiece, because you would more than likely move it for your Christmas meal. Unless you don’t really want to see or talk to your guests.. which may be a possibility. ????
Anyway, I threw together this vintage brass Christmas look for the middle of my table and wanted to share. Because I know no one who doesn’t like vintage brass items.
Just like the other two looks, I started with a riser, which is the riser that Deb made for me a few years ago. I shared the dimensions of the riser at the end of this post. I started with my vintage brass bowl that I grabbed a few weeks ago when I antiqued on the weekend. And added one of my favorite vintage-looking Christmas trees.
I have said before that I love mixing old bottle brush trees with new ones. The smaller ones that are beside the little brass bank houses are actually old ones. I like to pick them up when I see them for a great price. The larger ones that are displayed in the old wooden box are new ones. I liked how they all looked in that box.
And then, of course, I always add some type of candlesticks with my favorite candles. All of these are vintage brass ones that I have picked up here and there.
This dining table centerpieces will change a bajillion times before the end of the season. But, I saw all of these vintage brass pieces here in the cottage and thought they would look nice all thrown together. Stay tuned for more Christmas looks. I have everything out of the tubs and the cottage is still a disaster, but it’s coming along. Which, speaking of a disaster, did you see this reel? ????
