A Christmas Arrangement

I am getting my Christmas decorating done a little each day and will hopefully be pretty much finished by Thanksgiving, but I'm not holding my breath. This is what I put on top of the refrigerator. I bought 2 bags of these red glittery sticks at Kirklands (still have a lot left) and really like the height they give to an arrangement. I also have greenery and red balls stuck in the basket and I added a bow around my rooster's neck. Gotta keep my roosters on display and have them decked out too! Enjoy your evening and have a great Thursday!

I'm sooo jealous...I don't get to start decorating until after the Thanksgiving hoilday weekend...I will be out of town doing the college football thing...I'm also
going to work in some shopping at IKEA and Ballards Backroom while I'm gone! Your basket and rooster are darling. Happy Thanksgiving!

Blessings,
Linda

That looks great! I haven't started yet. I am trying to get this remodeling thing done -lol. I love the ribbon on the rooster.
Hugs,

We call the twig things: ting ting. I have tons in gold and usually use it on my tree and at the top too. This year is a different 'themed' tree that I am doing on a frugal budget. Just a little idea I hope works out like it is in my mind. I'm itching to decorate, but it will be the weekend after Thanksgiving.

Very nice that you consider the top of the refrigerator! : ) I like the basket because it's simple, but says holiday. I'll be starting on Thanksgiving with my decorating. Just can't get into yet!

I haven't even started yet. Too many other things going on. Love your arrangement. The glitter sticks are great. Mimi

Love the rooster and the basket is cute! I'm trying to do a little bit here and there so I don't feel so pressured right after Thanksgiving!

I really like it! I need to get to work on a few new things around here. It's always nice to freshen up things a bit with something pretty!

Very cute. I did the top of my fridge night before last myself. I'll have to take a picture of that and post it. Every room and corner needs just a bit of Christmas.

That rooster is looking mighty perky and proud of himself with that bow on! Looks great!

I love all your paint colors! What colors (and brands) of paint did you use in your kitchen and living room? I've been looking for a good gold color and also a good neutral color.

Thanks!

I love how you decorate the top of your refrigerator! I think your arrangement is lovely, and the ribbon on the rooster makes me smile because it's so cute!

Love those red glittery sticks. You know just how to use them. We don't have Kirklands here. Guess I'll try Michaels.
