Decorating a Sideboard.

Hello dear friends! I am so glad that you stopped by to visit me in my little corner of the world Down Under! I hope that you are well.

All over blogland at the moment people are decorating their mantels for the holidays and I feel like I'm missing out because we don't have one. So, even though I don't have a mantel I am going to pretend I do a decorate a sideboard instead!

So here is a before shot of the sideboard decorated for Christmas:

(I do believe that I was watching a Jamie Oliver Christmas special that night!)

And here is the finished sideboard...Attempt 1!

I used a few ideas from my inspiration images (from the previous post) including the use of the drinks tray.

Our drinks are on the antique silver platter that my husband got me last year for my birthday. I love the details around the border and on the handles.

Uh oh, you caught me watching TV again....I was watching the Barefoot Contessa this time!

 The centerpiece is a Waterford crystal bowl, a beautiful wedding gift.

I really liked the idea of incorporating my sea-shell collection so I have filled a hurricane lantern with sea shells for the sideboard and I put my big bowl of shells on the dining table.

Yes, that is a tea towel on that dining chair....that is where my son sits!

I am quite happy with the finished look but knowing me I will probably make some little changes over the next few days.

 One last shot of some flowers I picked the other day in a vintage Bohemia crystal vase.
