Simplistic Style In Mind. . .
With a simplistic style in mind for hosting Christmas On Crooked Creektt,
I began to set the design for the Dining Room built~in china cabinet
during a rearrange in August.
Simply shuffling a few vignettes behind the glass doors
and adding a delicate touch of Christmas décor
brought about the symmetrical design that keeps me grounded
within my Traditional Style.
The use of a simplistic color palette
gives a cohesive appeal throughout each vignette display.
Choosing creamy ivory, tan and white
with a mix of Seasonal greenery soothes the visual senses
and allows one to enjoy the accents of Traditional Christmas red.
A frosted pine needle with red berry candle ring
rest atop the creamy ivory urn and dons a mocha hued spiral ornament.
A vintage scalloped creamy ivory plate and a white ironstone platter
serve as a backdrop for this ethereal vignette.
Tucked neatly within the vignette
is my newest addition to my growing tureen collection.
The detail on the handles and lid are reminiscent of the wings of a Swan.
From a Christmas Past. . .
this precious Holly Hobby Commemorative Plate
is a treasured accent to our Christmas decorating year~after~year.
Surrounding the plate is a white vintage creamer with a lidded sugar bowl
and a pitcher filled with frosted holly and ivy.
Seasonal changes to this vignette include
candy canes inserted within the tan pitcher and the addition
of vintage miniature red glass ornaments inside the gravy boat.
An heirloom creamy ivory McCoy bowl filled with tan shredded gift packing paper
support the vintage glass red stars adorned with tan satin bows.
The divided embossed pine cone serving platter holds homemade fudge,
white and milk chocolate pretzels on our dessert table
for Christmas On Crooked Creektt.
A Christmas Present. . .
The Joy plate was a recent gift from a member of my Women’s Joy Circle.
I adore the simplistic style of this 8~inch holly and ivy decorative plate.
It is a perfect backdrop for the urn filled with the same seasonal greenery.
Nestled neatly in front,
the first of my tureen collection.
I was quite smitten with the bow detail in the lid and handles of this tureen.
A close duplicate to our beginning, is the final vignette within the cabinet.
Similar objects of interest and scale complete the simplistic style.
Arranging this cabinet in Traditional Style during August
gave me the simplistic style I had in mind for Christmas On Crooked Creektt.
Until next time. . .
