Reindeer on the Roof?


The prancing and pawing of each little hoof. . .







Wherever the reindeer landed, they are now on our farm table!




I haven't officially started decorating for Christmas. . . .





These beauties were unboxed in our garage over a month ago. . . .
I knew I wanted to use them for the holidays, so I set them aside.
After stumping my toe and turning the rascals over for the hundredth time,
I brought them inside. . . .

I absolutely love beeswax candles lit at night--
another thing I like about the "old days". . . .





I quickly grabbed a woven shawl for the table. . . .
 then nestled a pottery bowl inside two twig wreaths.





A few more additions and I was done. . . .
 Plain and Simple. . . .




Not sure how long the reindeer will be staying. . . .After all, they have a big Christmas Eve job to do. . . .But, just like Santa, they are AWAYS welcome at the Farm!!!!!

from my farmhouse to yours. . . .

You are inspiring me to figure out a Christmas centerpiece for our table. The table gets a lot of use, so it can be hard, but it would be nice for Christmas!

what a great deal on the reindeer, they are gorgeous! i like simple too...my husband and i are so opposite, he is gaudy like his mother (did i say that?!) and just like more and more and more, yuck! he's not happy until EVERYTHING is put up, no matter how tacky it looks :/ that's why i do it when he's not at home and hide the rest :D

Oh how I love your tablescape. I have a serious reindeer obession this time of year so you pretty much imagine how much I'm drooling over yours. Love the idea of the wreath inside the bowl too. Very farmhouse rustic - I'm loving it.

I have one tiny reindeer on my table, but nothing like your beauties. They are so unique and that makes them special.
Farmhouse hugs,
Cindy

The patina on your reindeer is fantastic! So much better than the shiny brass ones! Love it!
