Bright and modern, pink and green and blue were the colors I decided to pop into our new condominium for last Christmas’ decorations. My condominium is in a mid-century-modern building, so I have kept the colors rather neutral so that when an occasion like Christmas comes along, I can use whatever pop of color I choose to add spark to my holiday decor. I chose these bright colors along with white Christmas greens (that is an oxymoron, isn’t it) to give my holiday decorations a mid-century-modern punch!
I was so lucky last year to pick up this beautiful silver bowl. I didn’t know exactly when I would use it, but I knew I would use it. I have used it for so many occasions now! It is great for filling with ice and bottles of Champagne for a celebration! For Christmas, I used a large piece of styrofoam for the base, I pinned the white Christmas garland onto the styrofoam and then began building the centerpiece by using lots of brightly colored ornaments and a glue gun.
This piece was made by using a column of styrofoam. I covered the column of styrofoam in coordinating ribbon in case any of it showed through after I added the ornaments. I just glued the ornaments all over and then I tucked the white spruce springs into the spots between the ornaments. This was a great piece for using on the dinner table during a dinner party, as it was low enough to see over, as opposed to the large centerpiece I used for everyday and cocktail parties when no one was sitting at the table.
I wanted to share this picture of the entire piece of furniture so you could see how this bar of decoration adds a little Christmas color to this corner of my home.
I don’t have a fireplace or mantle in my condominium, so this bookshelf below my television fills the need for a place to decorate and add stockings on Christmas Eve. This garland was started with white mesh garland, a silver ball garland was added and then it was time to get out the glue gun again and add my colored ornaments. Don’t forget to tuck a few ornaments in some unexpected places and wrap a few gifts (or all of them) in coordinating papers and ribbons to complete your Christmas theme and decor. I hope you enjoyed my bright and modern Christmas decorations, I would love to see what your Christmas looks like!
