This majestic reindeer is ready for Christmas and he’s playing reindeer games with the stars! He’s out on a snowy night to catch stars and fill his sleigh with them! They will land softly among the greens and snow! The dining room centerpiece highlights my theme for this year’s Christmas… STARS! A nod to the star of Bethlehem and to the night the Christ Child was born! Stars hang from the chandelier overhead and fall softly to the table below. It’s a starry Christmas at StoneGable this year!
Decorating for the Christmas is such a labor of love. Every year I try to make my decor unique, new and something a little different. This year I am making lots and lots of stars with my Cricut electronic cutting machine and the free Make It Now projects.
The beautiful greens that fill the back of the sleigh is really a 10 foot prelit Balsam Hill garland. Using a garland to fill something large, like the sleigh, is much more economical (and beautiful) than buying individual greens. Don’t they look lifelike? And next year I can use the garland on my mantle or as a swag on a mirror!
I pulled apart an old snowy garland to add lots of white “fluff” to the centerpiece!
Red, green, gold and silver ball ornaments, also from Balsam Hill, dot the greenery in the sleigh.
The sleigh centerpiece features two types of 3D stars. I hung stars from the chandelier…
The reindeer is a handsome fellow, isn’t he? He came from Luckett’s a few years ago!
Here’s the star loving reindeer sleigh lit up…
