Looking Glass

My Holiday Copy Cat is taken from the December issue of Better Homes and Gardens on page 92 called Looking Glass.



 I didn't have the big bowl to do the arrangement in so I used a glass cake plate and cover.



I had the bird, the balls, the fake snow, the greens are from my yard, and I had just purchased the nest when I was at Bachmans.
I changed it up a little by adding the balls around the cake plate.  It was quick and easy and I think it turned out great.









And there you have a quick, easy Christmas Decoration for no money.
I'll be sharing this at DebbieDoos Holiday Copy Cat.

All next week I will be partying with these gals at the Christmas Blogger Block Party.

 


I hope you will check them out!
Merry Christmas
Barb

Hi Barb, cute centerpiece! I like your copycat version.
I'm a little behind with my decorating-just finished the tree! I better hurry, so I can join the blog party fun!
Have a good week. Oh about that olive oil-I saw a selection at Home Goods and they may have some at Marshall's too!

Your inspiration was so pretty and you did a great job with your copy cat. It's amazing how everything looks so pretty under glass. That was a great idea using the cake plate and cover as a substitute.Thanks for visiting and following I'm following you as well.

Barb, Nice use of available materials. I like that you used your cake plate to "make it your own". Cute bird, too.
