Today I’m sharing a white bottle brush tree vignette and a softer side of Christmas in the living room. The neutral tones are making it so warm and cozy in here, that I’m thinking about keeping the look through January.
It’s such a relief knowing I’m caught up with holiday decorating, and I can take a breather before packing it up again. Are you through with your decorating? How about shopping? My online shopping is complete and I’m ready to celebrate!
White Bottle Brush Tree Vignette
I found these big bottle brush trees last year, and I love their soft off-white color with flecks of snow. They make a pretty grouping on a vintage silver tray, which sets the tone for the rest of holiday decor.
My secret to keeping the bottle brush trees from wobbling is taping the trees to the tray. The artificial snow covers the base and also adds to the softness of the vignette. Be sure to check out my post Simple Bottle Brush Christmas Tree Vignette for close up photos.
I love using silver pieces during the holidays and should really keep them out year round. These smaller vintage bowls are perfect for holding ornaments with greenery and little pine cones.
Decorating the bar cart are two faux tress with ticking wraps and fairy lights. The large demijohn was a lucky find on a popup online antique sale. I’m looking forward to stalking my local thrift stores next year, because I have a lot of catching up to do. Anyone else feel like that too?
A faux cypress tree adds a pop of greenery to the side table. If you’re wondering what’s covering the base, I’m using a white linen napkin. It adds a soft texture to the tray arrangement and it doesn’t compete with the blue and white lamp base.
More collections On the Secretary
The secretary desk is always a favorite piece of furniture to decorate. As you can see I’m still using the secretary as a liquor cabinet, and it has lots of storage in the drawers. For more details see my post Ideas For Liquor Cabinets.
After a little rearranging, I have room in one of the nooks for more bottle brush trees. Honestly is there anything cuter than the row of multi-colored trees? I just can’t get enough!
My small ironstone collection and more white bottle brush trees create a mini vignette. And of course I have to include the floral frog tree just for fun.

That’s a wrap for my little softer side of Christmas tour and bottle brush tree vignettes? I hope you’ll have a safe and happy holiday season and celebrate the little joys that come your way.

Love your lighter side of Christmas… and bottle brush trees are always fun for decor. Love those sparkly acorns, too! Where did you find those? Pinned!

Thank you Julie! I found the little acorns at a gift shop several years ago and loved their soft vintage looking colors.
