Deck the halls...and lights!


So you want to decorate your light. I started with a bit of garland.

I just worked it in and out until it looked good and even and then gave it a good fluffin'

started with some dollar tree snowflakes..

and a few more

I found this beautiful ribbon at the Dollar Tree too!It looks white here but it is such a pretty blue~

more snowflakes...

Icicles that my Mom and I made years ago.

It's starting to come together.

Needs more snowflakes!






Im loving this blue so much I want to paint, ugh! Miss Pat at the backporch has the dining room I dream about. Hmmmmm.

  2. Good Morning Miz Susie,
    I decorated my chandlier over the dining table last year for the first time and I thought it looked good till I saw yours this morning *smiles* Girl you have it going on! Yours looks so beautiful and I love you went the snowflake and icicle route, you can leave it up well into January. Another beautiful idea Susie!

  3. This looks AMAZING! I love that it will take you all through the winter and not just the holidays (if you so choose). If I attempted something like this it would look like a cat exploded or something. This is absolutely stunning!!!

    So, what color ya painting? And will it be done before the holiday?

  5. So pretty! I was going to do my dining room chandelier in just snowflakes without the garland. But yours looks so pretty that I think I'll add the greenery too.

    Thanks!

  7. I love it!

    You find the best stuff at Dollar Tree!

    I'm going to decorate the light fixture over the farmhouse table this year. When we get home from the lake, that is. Still some decorating to do.

    Thanks so much for the mention and compliment, Susie! The paint is Sherwin Williams' version of satin (SW Interesting Aqua, with Topsail on the ceiling.

    Happy Thanksgiving!

  8. Beautiful! I love the blue also. That color is calling to me in my dining room too. I'm trying to figure out how it would fit in with all the red, gold, and green that I already have.

  23. That looks so cute. I always hung glittery blue ornaments and garland from our kitchen chandalier. This one looks like my old dining room light in FL. You will have to put up a nak@d photo of it. My husband was shocked when our music minister was over and I told him what I called the light... look at the part hanging down. What does it look like to do. You can find them under your daughter's bed with her barbies.

  39. Last year when I was decorating my lights like yours I ran into a problem. ..with all the turning I unscrewed the whole fixture from the ceiling. The only thing keeping the chandilier in place were the electrical wires and my hand. Good thing my husband was close by or I would have wound up crouching in the middle of the dining room table to get everything back in place. So you can bet this year when I decroate it I will be very careful.

    Hope mine looks as good as yours!
