To do this I added some fringe garland to some paper lanterns I had on hand, cut out some birds in black & white patterned paper, and threw it all up on the mantle with the banner.
I think it is pretty cute for a last minute idea.
Wanting to keep things simple, I also took down my scrolly candle holders from either side of the map and I think they may be down for good… What do you think?
Lately I have been dreaming of an airier, lighter feel in the living room and hoping that 2010 will be the year of A New Couch & Rug, or at least a new room re-arrangement.
I know I need to finish our bedroom first but I am setting that goal for Thanksgiving, so that leaves 2010 wide open for other design projects….
