Christmas Cabinet Vignette

I couldn't resist spreading my free greenery everywhere I could around the house for Christmas.  I love the way it drapes and softens the hard edges of cabinets and mantels.  I have a wonderful old cabinet that used to hold my clock collection that I've decided to swap out for my wedding china and it too was covered in greenery and topped with a little Christmas vignette...
I was so happy to see that my "perfect shade of blue" antique wine jug and the wedding china made the move across the country without breaking!

After liberally spreading the greenery, I simply intertwined some of my patio lights (purchased from Target) and played with different arrangements on top of the cabinet by varying the height and depths of the objects.
I replaced my indoor fern with a cotton arrangement that I put together and added a few glass ornaments to a bird nest that I had on hand...

...just to add a little Christmas cheer in unexpected places.



I love how the lights of the Christmas tree across the room reflect off the glass of the cabinet...

Hope you enjoyed!

Oh how lovely! I love the greenery and items added to the top! I have a black cabinet in our dining room and an oak buffet and hutch in our kitchen, both full of white dishes too. Your cabinet has great character and I love how pretty everything looks.
