Garland on a French Country Chandelier

Sometimes I need a little nudge.

It could be in the form of an upcoming brunch at my home,

or of visits to some beautifully decorated homes on Christmas tours,

or in this case, 

a gift of some amazing garland.








I've thought about decking this chandelier out for the holidays more than once.













The potential was there,

but the "doing" was not.

Pinterest didn't offer me a wide variety of French country style chandeliers dressed up for Christmas.

All I knew was that I wanted something light and airy for this breakfast room fixture.





Then the light turned on.

Lou, the talented daughter of my delightful friend, Laura, gave me two pieces of wired garland.

The minute I saw them, I knew where they were supposed to go.

Adding a little white burlap ribbon and a few pinecone ornaments, it was exactly what I didn't know that I wanted all along.





Thank you, Lou!

  1. Eilis,
    Perfect! I love the light airy look of the greenery that allows the beauty of your chandelier still to be seen. It was good to see you this week at our Texas bloggers lunch.

  2. Ellis, that looks so pretty and was just the right touch. I used real clippings from the garden in mine, to take a pic, and now they are dead! My husband couldn't keep his eyes (or his comments) off of them with his morning coffee by the tree!!..Happy Weekend..Judy

  4. This looks just gorgeous, Ellis. I have done my chandelier for so many years. I use live pine and floral wire to keep them attached to each other. Then I wind ribbon or beads in and out.

    You have done a festacious job!

  5. Your chandelier is a real beautiful, Eilis, and all the more so with that lovely frosted garland. I've put something (greens or garlands or ornaments) on the chandlier for many moons but it helps when you have something as lovely as yours to work with in the first place!
