Thanks for Adding the Pizzazz

Recently, I posted about my dining room buffet display created from estate sale bottle brush trees and bargain glassware I had picked up at thrift stores.

Many of your were kind enough to give me suggestions to enhance this collection. Thank you for taking the time to help me out. You provided lots of excellent feedback. I played around with the display, taking into consideration your wonderful suggestions, until I found something I really liked.

I added acrylic ice and clear gemstones I already had, vintage ornaments that my husband's mother gave us and put it all on a vintage white damask tablecloth that I picked up at an estate sale years ago.

It's not dramatically different. But, I believe the enhancements make it more cohesive and give it more punch. What do you think?

Make it a great day!


  1. Just those little enhancements really made it pop!
    Looks lovely.

  2. LOVE your bottle brush trees!The mirror and glassware really show off the trees so well. I'm your newest follower and visiting from Seasonal Sundays.

  3. That looks really fab! My trees are amongst the Christmas Village now, but in January I keep them out displayed on a cake plate as kind of a winter forest vignette.

  4. It looks GORGEOUS!! The things you added are perfect! Love the display, AND you have given ME some inspiration too! Thanks!!!! XO, Pinky

  5. What a fantastic idea! It definitely modernizes a classic vintage decoration!

  6. A lovely vignette. Very inspiring : ) Thanks for leaving kind comments at Polly's. Don't forget to enter our giveaway :)

  7. Using the clear acrylic ice and gems really ties this all together! Beautiful job!

  8. Ann, this is such a gorgeous display! I love the vintage bottle brush trees and the way they look on the mirrored tray and beneath the elegant glass!
