Only 9 days left until the arrival of my little man! That's right, what once seemed like an eternity is now only days away as I am scheduled to have a C-section on January 20th. I've been keeping busy by nesting around the house.
Today I'm joining Marty's Tabletop Tuesday party at A Stroll Thru Life, showing off the new centerpiece I made for my Dining Room table.
I found this beautiful container at Tuesday Morning.
And by adding some of these faux pears, stolen from the kitchen,
and the faux stems shown here on the buffet,
I created this:
I like how it turned out as a centerpiece.
Not too big, not too small. Just right. Although I'm sure I'll be tweaking it as I always do.
What I love most about it is that it blends in with the surroundings in the Dining Room.
The black with gold trim coordinates nicely with the chandelier that hangs above.
And the floral detail on the container blends in with some other elements in the room.
I have a hand-painted chest under the buffet that was given to me by my husband's parents.
The pictures on the adjacent wall have a similar floral motif.
As well as my antique hand-painted tilt-top table in the corner of the room, purchased from an antique store last year.
And lastly, the pillows on my armchairs.
I also changed out the display on my buffet.
It went from this:
I found this container on the Island of Misfit Decor, aka, my storage room, and added the orbs, also from the Island.
Here's a look at the room as a whole.
I'm still in need of a new area rug. And I can't forget to include a photo of my favorite flea market find ever, my Florentine nesting tables.
I hope you enjoyed this little tour of my nest. Please visit Marty for more inspiring tabletops!
