|Dining Room before work started.|
|A 24" wood circle is put on top of a 26" pedestal|
on the left. Because the tree was going into a tight corner, it needed to be put on a pedestal.
|Tree is placed on pedestal|
|Bluish cherry blossom branches added|
Next I added several pale blue cherry blossom branches.
This softened and expanded the lines of the tree.
|Bright matte chartreuse balls added|
Matte chartreuse balls are hung symmetrically on the tree.
For a good looking tree, ornaments should never be hung randomly.
|4" wired cream ribbon is put back to back with|
the same ribbon in gold
Next I put cream and gold 4" wired ribbon back to back, made a bow in the middle of it , attached the bow to the top of the tree and coiled the ribbon down both sides of the tree.
|Blue damask balls, angels and beads finish the tree|
The skirted serving table is next to be done.
The top is cleared and work starts.
Two nails already in the wall on each side of the art work led me to make the bows and ribbon so that it looks like they are holding the roping up. The lamps were replaced with a pair of "antique mercury glass" electric hurricane lamps. The roping was decorated with chartreuse and blue damask balls. Artificial fruit adds more color.
