Silver and Gold. . .

Hello my friends, I’ve been holding off sharing much Christmas décor until the start of our ‘Creating Christmas’ link party starting on the 8th.
 
But I tell you, when it comes to Christmas I’m like a kid in a candy store.  Just can’t contain my excitement!
 
So to suffice I’m sharing just a bit of Silver and Gold.
 
No one tells it better than Burl Ives.
 
Silver and gold
Silver and gold
Silver and gold
Ev'ryone wishes
For silver and gold
How do you measure
It's worth?
Just by the pleasure it
Gives here on Earth
 
In our every day décor it’s not often we mix silver and gold together.  When it comes to holiday decorating it certainly is magical!
 
I love the combination of the silver beads with the gold tinsel on my book page wreath.

Ornaments adorned with touches of both Silver and Gold once belonged to my sweet mother in law.

To compliment the Silver and Gold accents on the Believe sign I placed a white bottle brush tree with Silver beads and a Gold glittery tree on the table below it.

I made sure to add touches of both Silver and Gold when I created this holiday star.

and to one of my Advent calendars.

And what could be better than Silver and Gold on your Christmas tree?

Silver and gold
Silver and gold
Mean so much more
When I see
Silver
And gold decorations
On ev'ry Christmas tree
Silver and bells
 
Silver, silver and gold
Silver, silver and gold
Silver and gold
Silver and gold
Silver and gold
 
I hope you’re having some fun with Silver and Gold.
 
hugs,
Jann

Silver and gold (and white) are my favorite go to decorating colors for Christmas. A little bit of bling, some candlelight and silver or gold, and you're set. ;)

It looks great, Jann...and I can just hear Burl Ives singing that in his rich voice. I loved him as a kid.

Everything looks great and I love the mix of silver and gold for the Holidays- xo Diana
