Adding Winter Wonderland With Vignettes

No matter the size of your home, a lot of Christmas decorating can be achieved with vignettes.  I’ve lived in small apartments and condos  as well as a larger home. Whether you have room for a big Christmas tree or just a small table top tree, much of your decorations can be achieved with small arrangements on tables, bookcases, and shelves. I love using small scenes to fill a room. This holiday season my living room is a blue and silver Winter Wonderland.

When you enter the living room through the front door, you are greeted by my grandmother’s side table with a woodland scene. My fawn print is placed against the wall on snowflake place mats with greenery, pine cones, and a beautiful deer.

My coffee table has a small vignette on a silver charger with greenery. A small vintage porcelain teapot with a white snowman against deep blue is the focus. Small silver and gold ornaments are beside it.

Over the last 5 years I have collected blue, white, and silver figurines from thrift stores and garage sales. I love snowman figurines. On the side table on the left of the sofa, I placed a large blue and silver Santa with a smaller blue and silver snowman.

This holiday arrangement is completed with the addition of a crystal vase with white roses and a large pale blue poinsettia and a silver deer candleholder.

Going right to the sofa is a pillow with a fawn in the snow image .

Continuing to the right side of my sofa. I have a new knit sweater throw in off-white. My blue Santa pillow highlights the sofa and blends with vignettes on both side tables.

On the right side table is my Advent vignette for 2022. A mother-of-pearl vase is filled with bright blue faux poinsettias with silver and white accented greenery. This week I added a small blue snowman on each side of my vase. Now my side vignettes are both part of the Winter Wonderland theme.

Across from the Advent arrangement is a white wooden chair by my macrame wall hanging. I added large faux poinsettias in white, gold, and light blue to make the macrame wall art a Christmas decoration.

A pair of bunnies in the snow is pictured on the pillow in the chair.

I hope you enjoyed your visit to my home. The welcome mat is always out for you. Have a great December!
