Adding height to your tables decor with a centerpiece as I have shown is so much fun. It allows for everyone around the table to access there favorite goodies and deserts. If you would like to see the details in these photos, Please click on each photo and it will enlarge.
The crown of our room is the old black wrought iron tole chandelier. Adding old mirrored ball ornaments, glittered tassels, and shimmering snowflakes give this chandelier such a gorgeous look. It is important not to forget all elements in your room when creating a Winter Wonderland Ambiance.
This beautiful china with the Silver Chandelier and rim was an early Christmas present to me this year. I love the way it looks and can easily be used year round.
My mother use to make Carmel Popcorn for all of her friends and neighbors when I was little. I remember her making it and watching her candy thermometer with anticipation waiting for the Carmel to reach the perfect temperature.
I adore mixing the Sterling Shiny Silver pieces with the aged tarnished patina of an old serving dish.
Another piece from the Vintage Chandelier & Crown China Collection. This teapot is great for holding hot chocolate, tea, coffee, or warm wassail.
WE WOULD LIKE TO WISH YOU AND YOUR FAMILY THE VERY BEST HOLIDAY SEASON! ENJOY YOUR TIME SPENT WITH LOVED ONES AND TREASURE EVERY MOMENT.

The land here in Hawaii is so lush and beautiful with gorgeous flowers and vegetation. There is so much to see and do. I am including photos of some of the things we have had the pleasure of experiencing. The sunsets have been incredibly breathtaking. We had two very romantic dinners as the sunset over Lanai. Every second on this beautiful Island has been Heaven on Earth...Our plane leaves tomorrow and we will be sad to go, but happy to know we are always welcome back. Aloha, and Mahalo
