Yesterday I had a sneak peek at Bottoms Up Antique Market's Holiday Open House. I took lots of pictures- the place is full of cool, inspiring, amazing and incredible stuff- industrial, vintage, French, fine antiques, repurposed vintage, funky clothes,handmade jewelry and more, all in a great old building I posted about here.
Because a lot of folks will be doing some holiday decorating this weekend and next, I thought I'd share some different ideas I spied for displaying ornaments.
The classic tree full of ornaments- especially cute when the ornaments are color coordinated and PINK.
Balanced on a cruet holder.
Sorted by color in vintage glass jars.
Lots of the same color in different sizes and finishes gathered in a planter make a big impression.
So do just a few ornament on a pretty plate.
Mercury glass vases look extra festive with an ornament perched on top.
Garden urns are great for smaller table top trees. Wouldn't you like to be invited to this tea party?
Love this two tiered Florentine tray overflowing with gold.
And how's this for a great take on Florentine?
...a whole tree decorated with Madonnas in Florentine frames.
If you don't have a whole tree, improvise with just a branch to make an ornament curtain.
If all this decorating has made you tired, how about a nap with a linen throw and pillow next to a giant basket of pinecone ornaments?
For more great holiday ideas, inspiration, and creativity, check out Bottoms Up Antique Market. They'll be open First Friday weekend, which is Dec 6-7.
