Christmas Mantle/Buffet

It's time for Christmas Blog parties galore, and the first stop is my favorite, Debbie Doos Blogging and Blabbing Magazine Copy Cat Challenge. I flipped over the Better Homes and Gardens Christmas Ideas 2011 issue. It is packed with beautiful ideas and features several of our favorite bloggers. I was looking for an idea to copy and was fortunate enough to find a picture loaded with things that I had on hand...yippee! I dont have a mantle but I do have a buffet that I talked about here. I didn't get it done in time for Thanksgiving but I did finish it in time for Christmas. I'll share the full reveal on that later, but right now it's all about Christmas. Here is the picture I tried to copy:


I saw this and thought it was great way to put some of my milk glass collection to good use. So here is my take:


As you can see I also made a  wreath that I will have a post and a full reveal on later.  I placed a vintage runner on top of the buffet because the mantle is white in the photo and because I didn't want to reveal the buffet just yet, sneaky huh?  Here are a few more shots of my copy cat.






As usual this was a fun Challenge, I cant wat to see what everyone is doing for Christmas this year, I'm joining  These fun parties this week,
