Tree Two! CHOCOLATE TRUFFELS on a SILVER PLATTER...

I LOOOOOVE this tree...the warmth that the Chocolates, Coppers with touches of Gold and Sliver...
This picture does NOT do it justice...the colors are much richer in person...

These are some tabletop figurines...look in that section (tabletop) at the craft stores , Big Lots or the Dollar stores...in the right size you can nestle them back inside the tree...Again, the unexpected...
A TIP! I OFTEN use tabletop and wall decor for the tree...

This is a Floral "Pick"...Remember me, im the pick QUEEN!  Its like an Arranged floral on a stem...Perfect to just bend in the right way and secure the stem into the tree...

Love the nature of using pinecones in a tree.  AND, if you are a DIY fan, you can let your creative juices flow...a little spray paint, some glitter and crystal beads if you are patient enough :-)

I have thesee on my trees at home (Remember, im an Interior Designer, so I have 5 trees, I know...Ridiculous!!)  These are NOT christmas ornaments...I found these in the regular Home Decor area of Hobby Lobby...They are in with the decorative balls...they go on 1/2 price about every 3 weeks...BARGAIN!

The same...just closer for the detail...

These were $3.99...then 1/2 off....you could get some glue and glitter and change the color EASILY...
So Simple!

Silver, almost Icicle like...these are GORGEOUS, hanging off the very tip of a branch OR lay them more back into the tree for depth...and they will catch the light and make your tree sparkle....

Uuuuuuummmmm....sorry...dont know what happened but this picture is TOTALLY UPSIDEDOWN...SO, just pull this picture up and do a headstand, cuz these crystal acorns hang BEAUTIFULLY, very delicate looking...

Aaaahhhhh!  A-MAZ-ING....Love the Copper, bronze color....

Some ornaments are less about the color and more about catching the light...just know that there is a difference...

These are again, more of an ornament to "catch the light"....makes a world of difference.  While I would hang some on the outer perimeter of the tree, I would DEFINATELY bury these deep into the branches...

Ahh!  Copper and Chocolate poinsettas...Nuttin better!  These have a little clip on them and are VERY SIMPLE to clip to the perfect bald spot!

These are like the tiniest little crystal chandeliers...

CHOCOLATE!  Its the ornaments like these that establish your color scheme...these were in boxes of 6...very inexpensive!

These silver had a crackle appearance, and the tree lights reflected off of them BEAUTIFULLY!  Its the ornaments like this that are silvers or crystals that reflect the light and they will make your tree GLOW...Its BREATHTAKING!
But to see these hanging on the isle where you purchase by ones, they are probably not going to be the ones that jump out at you.  They may even look a little dull...but once they are on the tree and the tree is finished and lights on, GORGEOUS!  Promise!

Just a pale green with copper poinsetta stem...just simply lay in the tree...I will be showing how...STAY TUNED!

A copper "pick" that again you slide into the tree branches...Very easy :-)

Ok...need I say anything...these a beautiful on the tree branch tips...And if you dont like em there, wear em as earrings!?!


Another pick...great for fillers...very inexpensive, usually $2.99-$3.99...then get them 1/2 off!
A TIP!  Hobby Lobby usually runs ALL of their Christmas inventory at 1/2 off from mid November till Christmas....

These cute little packages were also in tabletop decor, but lightweight and easily placed in the tree branches :-)


 This is one of my FAVORITES!!!  I LOVE Chocolates, Coppers, Silvers....Absolutely Luxurious!!!  These are some of the colors I have in my personal tree at home.  Some might think the chocolates and coppers would not be timeless...GOOD NEWS!  They are, ...not only in Christmas decor but in the colors you choose for your home the rest of the year,  earthtones are always going to be in.  Im just gonna let these Pictures speak for themselves... GORGEOUS!!!  And just totally YUMMY!

I will have more Chocolate Truffle on a Silver Platter soon....COME BACK!!!

Have a BLESSED day!

I LOVE picks too!!! I really love putting big things that aren't ornaments on a tree too! I saw that in a store one time. I just can't wait to see the rest of your trees. My main tree is burgundy, gold & rust/browns. I never thought about mixing gold & silver together though. I have a new tree for my kitchen this year that I have ornaments that we've collected on vacations. I'm still trying to decide on a color scheme for that one.

BTW - A button?? Are you kidding me?? I'm lucky I have a blog!!! I barely figured out how to put other people's buttons on mine!!

Also, I now believe that lack food & sleep was responsible for how I felt yesterday, not my much loved WINE!!

Thanks for following me!

And I thought I was the Pick Queen! Picks are definitely the secret to a "showy" tree... This one is beautiful!
