The holiday season is creeping up on us. I am slowly but surely getting the house decorated. When you come in my front door you pass the dining room and are greeting by this blue console table. I have never really decorated it for Christmas, but decided this was the year!
I began by hanging an evergreen garland of norfolk pine over the top of the diptych of a boat.

I have had my eye on this white peacock from Z Gallerie for a couple of years. I saw it on sale and decided the time was right!
A silver wine cooler made a perfect nest for the peacock. He really needed to be elevated to have his beautiful tail flow down onto the table top.
I added a second garland around the pictures and began to build up my holiday decorations. Buffalo snow was tucked beneath the peacock’s tail along with some flocked branches and snowflake ornaments.
At the other end of the console I thought I would add this floral arrangement with white orchids and white hydrangeas. Later I decided it was too showy and competed with the peacock. I always say, if you don’t like how something you are creating looks, change it or start over.
I built up the arrangement beneath the peacock with silvered eucalyptus, silver glitter leaves and and silver and white ornaments.
Here is another view of the peacock with the additional glitter greens and pale blue ribbon with mirrored trim down the center of it. You can see the crystal candle holders with the pale blue candles which replaced the floral arrangement.
The finishing touch was to add some battery operated snowy twinkle lights to illuminate the peacock at night.
