Silvery and Gold Christmas on Piano

 I have finally taken down the Thanksgiving decoractions and am slowly putting up some Christmas decorations in my home.  Just a little silver, white and gold above my son's piano. 

I started by covering the piano top with a silvery vintage wrap designed by Emily Wetherby that belonged to my mother.  These pictures do not do the wrap/stole justice.  Believe me it is very GLAMOROUS, Old Hollywood looking.  (Not something I would wear.)

Sorry about the poor picture quality.  It was hard taking pictures with all that silver reflection. 

What I love about all four trees on the piano is the simplicity (What?) I mean - hardly any ornaments.   The tallest tree on the left is all white (glitter, of course) with gold ribbon wrapped around, it came with the glittered star on top.  The next is a small gold tree with a glittered star on top.   Next is the tiny silver tree with a hint of pink.  I decorated this tree with small bevels you hang from a chandelier.  The star on top is a glitzy star shaped pin. The tree on the far right is a silver lighted tree that I decorated with silver and gold ornaments.  It has a huge silver star burst on top.

The vintage looking Santa is a recent purchase.  He is carrying a small tree made out of (what else?)music sheets.
I think this is enough bling to brighten all my neighborhood. Hope you are having a wonderful time preparing for the Christmas Season. HO! HO! HO!

These are beautiful! Our tree is finally decorated - Henry and his girlfriend and her best friend did it the other night. They were so cute together. I have one more Nativity set to put up and then I think I'm done decorating.

I adore what you did! Yes, it is so hard to take pictures with the glitter and glitz isn't it? Anything white wants to throw the camera off too. I think your trees are gorgeous. They don't need any ornaments. They speak for themselves. I am really loving the white and gold and glitter. You did such a pretty job! Thanks for your lovely visit!

That is a BEAUTIFUL and very glitzzy
piano top. I love everything you did here.
The stole is so pretty and I would love wearing that....perfect for a little black dress. :)
I love ANYthing Old Hollywood.

Love all the little trees....I must look around and find some. I have a sofa table that would look great with a few little trees on it. Thanks for the inspiration.
