Hope Decor Tips for Creating Christmas Memories with Vignettes.

Farmhouse Christmas Vignette

 

I'm excited to invite you to stop no. 6 in my series... Creating Christmas Memories with Vignettes. I know you'll love this Farmhouse Christmas Vignette. Be sure to learn how to create your own and be inspired.
I bet you are in the process of making your home MERRY AND BRIGHT! Decking the halls and doing Fa-la-la-la-la fun things this Christmas! I am doing that right now too! One great way to give your home a festive holiday look is by creating Christmas vignettes. I’m so thrilled to be a part of Diane’s CREATING CHRISTMAS MEMORIES WITH VIGNETTES. And I am soooo happy to be here at AN EXTRAORDINARY DAY today!!!! A big thanks to Diane for letting me visit her beautiful blog and be part of this wonderful series!

My favorite vignettes to create any time of year are ones on my kitchen table. This Christmas I am decorating in naturals, long pines, pinecones and berries. Mostly neutrals, whites, blacks and greens. Sigh! My favorite color combo! This vignette sings Christmas to me. Like a quiet walk in the woods in winter. I adore winterscapes, and winter woods and all things winter. I think winter is an under loved season! And this time of the year a vignette like this one reminds me of the song, Silent Night… my favorite Christmas carol. It’s a song about early, early Christmas morning and the announcement by the angels of the Christ Child’s birth. The wee hours of Christmas are my very favorite. It just feels holy!

Did you know that Silent Night was written as a poem first? Its origin is from the Austrian Alps in 1818. One Christmas when the Church organ was broken, a pastor put his poem to guitar music and the most beloved Christmas carol was born. You can read the whole story HERE.

In the spirit of an “all is calm, all is bright spirit”, I’ll show you how I put this vignette together!

I corral my vignette items in a basket, tray or this big wooden packing crate. I think the wooden crate looks best on my barn beam table. I covered the bottom of the box with a printed burlap. It make the perfect container for vignettes!

In the crate I stacked green and white dishes, a white pedestal and some cute pinecone plates circled with greens! I love love love stacking dishes, especially in a kitchen vignette! I say, “Get those dishes out of the cupboards and use them to decorate!”. And I like to put a touch of the season in bowls… unexpected and fun!

More bowls and a big sugar pinecone!

Speaking of a touch of the season… I put a little pine tree on a chippy black bench. Using benches, risers and pedestal dishes varies heights in your vignettes and adds lots of interest.

Another must in a kitchen table vignette is a lantern or candle. There is something so romantic about lighting a candle at dinnertime! I added greens and a big burlap and black and white houndstooth bow to the top of the lantern.

Isn’t Yvonne’s Farmhouse Christmas Vignette gorgeous?

Thank you Yvonne for inspiring us on so many levels.  I love everything about this vignette and as always your photography captures a mood that I want to evoke in my home, as well.  One of calm and peace, filled with rich meaning.

I’ve been reading Yvonne’s blog, Stone Gable for a long time.  She is an amazing woman of incredible creativity and amazing homemaking skills.  I appreciate her genuine warmth and how she gently infuses her faith in her writing.  I’ve told Yvonne, that I think she is the queen of vignettes.  Many times, I’ve shown her blog to friends for creating those beautiful decorative moments we all love to have in our homes.

I know you’ll want to connect with Yvonne on Facebook :: Twitter :: Pinterest
and of course her blog… Stone Gable

 

This is the sixth in our series, Creating Christmas Memories with Vignettes.

If you missed it, the series began here.

I want to remind you that the beauty of decorating with vignettes, is that you can place as many or as few as you like in your home.  It will reduce your stress because wherever you complete a Christmas memory vignette your decorating is done until you have the time or desire to create another.   If you’re time-starved this method of decorating is very freeing.
