Is it too early for Christmas decor?
Depends on who you are and what makes you happy.
I was inspired, and whenever I am inspired by someone else I always disclose who it was. It wouldn’t be fair otherwise.
Pottery Barn did it again.
Love their Christmas decorating.
I saw these lanterns with the bulbs inside and fell in love.
Now if you don’t have lanterns you have several options.I purchased mine a couple years ago at Marshall’s.
The little one was $9.99
and the big one was $19.99.
I know Hobby Lobby has lots of inexpensive ones too.
If you want to use what you have,
consider a vase, a bowl, or even a basket.Here’s my version…
and quite honestly I like it better than PB.
I cleared everything off of my foyer table and started with a blank slate.
The lanterns I had which I mentioned above.
The lights are a string of white Christmas lights I also had.
I bunched the lights up gently on the lantern floor.
I used one set total, and hid the cord in the back.
I chose red and white Christmas bulbs/ornaments
from my Christmas decorations.
I stuck a few (unwrapped) leftover candy canes from last year in there too.
We have lots of Pine trees in our neighborhood, and a couple in our yard, so Rick went out in the DARK last night and found the Pine cones and branches.
I added them to our favorite bowl my Brother, Bobby, gave to us for our wedding,
and then Daphne suggested the tea lights.
