A little vignette of sparkly silver glass trees...

mingling with mercury glass candlesticks...

a couple of snow dusted bottlebrush pretties
& an elegant chandelier.

I just love these silver trees!!
They were a clearance find several years ago
and I wish I had gotten more of them.

They look just amazing marching down the center of a table
or decorating the mantle...

I added in a couple of heavy gold glass chargers & a couple of plates.

A little faux artichoke in the center of each dish

The gold chargers are super thick and heavy and have an embossed
appearance so they look like wood graining.
I wish they had them in silver!

Christmas decorations are beginning to appear around our house...
right now, though,
I am gathering up lots of inspiration....

  1. The silver trees are beautiful. I love silver and sparkly. I also love the mercury glass and bottle brush trees. I haven't started decorating yet but I am ready to go. I am hoping to get started next Wednesday with my first tree going up. Looking forward to the feathered nest Friday in a couple of weeks--just in time :)

  2. Oooh, they are lovely. I have that all the time, wishing I'd got more of a great bargain.

    Well, if you see any more will you get some for me...I love them!!


  3. The silver trees and the candlesticks glisten in the light of the candles and look BEAUTIFUL! What a nice vignette. Your Holiday party sounds like so much fun! I had hubby bring down a couple of my Christmas boxes yesterday and I must confess, I started putting stuff up. I ADORE this time of year!

  4. Hi Courtney, Love your slver trees, a great little sparkly forest, I am chomping at the bit to get all christmas decorated!

  5. I love the trees. Do you remember wher you go them? I have not begun and Christmas decorating. I need to get through Thanksgiving first! I like the 3 wreaths hung together too.

  6. I love your silver trees! They look sooo pretty.The vignette is gorgeous.I'm going to put my tree up very soon!I'm going through all my christmas stuff now.


  7. Very pretty!! The vignette is beautiful! I am loving silver and mercury glass mixed in with natural elements this year. At least, that is my goal!

  8. Hi Courtney! I love the combo of those silvery trees under your gorgeous crystal chandelier! It looks so incredibly elegant! :-)

  9. Oh Courtney... I love those... especially the mercury glass candlesticks... I am a sucker for mercury glass!

  10. That looks so nice Courtney. I love mercury glass. Too bad you didn't get more of those trees, they look really good with the candlesticks. I can't wait to get out all my Christmas decorations :)

  11. Courtney, this is like torture. I just realized that I have mercury glass....somewhere and I don't know where it is. I had a hard time falling asleep last week, and I dreamt that I couldn't reach the mercury glass. How sad is that?LOL. Can't wait to see what awaits!

  12. oh swoon. I love all that silver. The trees are gorgeous!! GORG!!! I cant wait to see the rest

  16. Love all the silver and mercury glass in your display...I want to do something on my mantel like that for Christmas. I also like the three wreaths hung together with ribbon.

  17. Love these silver trees. We are decorating in silver and lavender this year - those would be really pretty. I'm your newest follower!

  18. Hi Ms. Courtney! Love your silver trees...luv the combination with the silver candle sticks...very festive and nostalgic at the same time. Haven't started my Christmas decor yet, I usually do it after Thanksgiving.

  21. Hi Courtney, I also love the silver trees and candlesticks! I bet it is especially beautiful with the light reflecting off your gorgeous chandelier. I haven't started decorating yet but I have been itching to get started.
    Hugs, Sherry

  22. Oh, I like how you've used the artichokes! I'm going to have to remember that!
    I love the little silver trees. Beautiful!

  23. Courtney, Love your tablescape! I am using more silver and white throughout my house this year. Where ever did you find those artichokes?? What fun! My holiday decorating has started already.... I figure- if I do it now, I can enjoy it longer. It takes a long time to set up all my trees! :-)
