I’ve chosen 6 of my favorite tabletop Christmas decor ideas created by bloggers that I would like to share with you. If you don’t know them, you might even want to check out their blog.
Some people just have the knack for knowing what to put where. I admire someone who can draw the eye to a surface like a magnet.
Here are 6 holiday tabletops that inspired me this year and gave me ideas for decorating my apartment.
Coffee Table Display:
Virginia Sweet Pea used a vintage Coca-Cola crate to create a coffee table display.
It is simple with fragrant greenery, a candle, and a wooden Christmas tree. She added a few sticks found in nature to add to her vignette.
The result is a nature scene with a bit of color to accent the display.
Candles & Trees:
Liz at Love Grows Wild decorated her coffee table with a tray filled with white Christmas trees and birch candles.
And the result is a scene that is neutral and natural.
The tray mimics the roundness of her glass coffee table.
A Christmas Village:
Deb & Danelle always inspire me. Here they used a farmhouse sideboard and created a village. It has a variety of white ceramic houses and bottle brush trees.
When looking for inspiration, I tend to visit the Deb & Danelle blog because I love their style and vintage decor.
Traditional Christmas Colors:
First Day Of Home opted to use the surface of her coffee table to create a beautiful Christmas arrangement. She used a Christmas table runner as her base.
Next to that gorgeous Christmas tree, her table display adds even more colorful cheer.
A Vintage Holiday Arrangement:
The Liz Marie Blog always has gorgeous settings for holidays in her farmhouse. She created a vintage Christmas tabletop vignette.
This girl definitely has the knack to know “what to put where.” And as a result, I think she has had a couple of decorating books published recently.
Small Tabletop Tree:
Handmade Farmhouse has become one of my favorite blogs. She just seems to have that magic touch when it comes to decorating.
In this photo, she added a small Christmas tree to a wicker tray in front of a mirror.
I hope if you haven’t already decorated all of your tabletop surfaces, these 6 bloggers might give you inspiration. As it did for me.
I saw my ankle surgeon yesterday afternoon. He told me to wear the cam boot when I’m not sleeping or showering. Or driving of course, since it’s my right foot.
There is medication waiting for me at the pharmacy.
His wife is my ankle therapist. She will call me to set up physical therapy visits. She’s helped me a lot over the years since the break.
The doctor said he could give me a shot (I’m assuming in my ankle) just before the move. But I’m a little hesitant. There is the chance that that will just mask the pain. And in feeling better, I might hurt it further, doing more harm than good.
If I can walk without significant pain, I tend to not know when to stop. And with moving, as you know, there is so much to do before and after.
I’ve dealt with this injury for nearly 10 years now. And there’s seldom been a single day that I haven’t dealt with pain from it. A double ankle break is difficult to deal with.
As the ankle healed from the last surgery in 2014, two bones for some reason fused right where I bend my foot below my ankle. Which makes it even more problematic.
He did say that I had purchased very good shoes last week at Fleming’s. I was wearing the Drew sneakers and he picked them up and looked them over. And said they had chosen well.
