2019:a Christmas Odyssey Part 2...

A Pink and orange Atomic Christmas...



On Jupiter, Mars Or Saturn...

Hey Flockers! We wanted to carry the space theme into the Dinning Room just in a different color scheme. I have always loved Pink and Orange together so I figured I would give it a try. I had plenty of pink and orange ornaments to use but nothing that screamed space, so I went back to my idea from part one and made some more planets using the new colors. I added some vintage shiny brites and lots of gold picks to tie it all together. You will notice with the gold picks I was able to use some of them to add a gold star trail around the tree. If you remember from part one I had a lot of trouble using the trails on the tree. I tried mimicking the same concept that worked on the previous tree on that tree but it did not work. I think it might have something to do with the living room tree being all metallic silver where the dinning room tree is a metallic silver mixed with a dull silver. Here are a few close ups of the Saturn Ornaments.




Don't let anyone treat you like a yellow Starburst...

As seen in the picture above, next to Saturn you see a Pink Starburst (because that is the only flavor that matters, lol). These are available in several different colors from Hobby Lobby. I try and purchase them when I can because they can be used for just about anything. I had some in stock already in Pink and Orange and they fit right in with the theme.




Out of the world tree topper...

The tree topper was the absolute last thing that went on this tree. To be honest I had no idea at all what I was going to do for a topper. I added everything except the topper and then it hit me like "Hey Big Dummy, Make a Giant Saturn". Well Duh of course it needed a big freakin Saturn on top! For this I used the biggest tree ball I could find and turned it upside down so that where the hook would go I could put the stem in to attach it to the tree. Other than that it is made just like the smaller ones. The gold stars that surround it are vintage and I found them thrifting a few years ago. I assume they were made to be tree toppers at one time and they worked perfect for the top of mine.


Dining in Outer Space...

My concept for this is simple. I wanted you to get the idea that when you sit down at the table you were looking down from outer space at a street filled with colorful trees and little houses all waiting on Christmas Eve. I also knew that I really wanted to use rainbow bottle brush trees. I ended up getting my trees from Hobby Lobby due to it being crunch time but they are also available from Glitterville. The little houses and gold skinny candle holders came from Spot's Dollar Spot at Target. The poodle candle holders are by Opalhouse from Target and the black and white striped runner is a DIY project from Halloween. I finished the table with gold chargers with black and white dishes and napkins that I got from Target of course. I guess we might as well say Thanks Target for helping with the year's table. The black and white taper candles are just white candles that I used black electrical tape to make the stripes, I do this a lot when I can't find the candles I want.


That Damn Blue table...

Of course I need to address the always there blue table. The plates I used on the table had a matching runner that I purchased but it was too long for my table so I used it to cover that damn blue table. If you remember from part one I made two deer this one I painted gold and added silver accents and put little pink bows on the antlers, because I will admit it.... I for a moment in my crafting frenzy forgot that girl deer don't have antlers lol. The two gold trees are again made by Opalhouse, I LOVE THIS BRAND! This is one of my favorite blue table projects to date.



Vintage Santas in Outer Space...

I have a must have attitude about Vintage Santa Mugs. My china cabinet is filled with them and other vintage Christmas ceramics that I have collected over the years. If you have any laying around you can inbox me for the address where you can send them. On top of the china cabinet is home to my prized lava ceramic tree and a few vintage snowmen I have found. The snowman standing on the bricks is a music box that still works, although he needs a lil TLC to get him to turn. The other snowman lights up like a ceramic tree and he had a corn cob pipe but it broke off and I can't find it.





I hope you have all enjoyed 2019: A Christmas Odyssey Parts 1 & 2. This year's theme was so much fun to visualize and create in this crazy head of mine. Please try some of the projects from this year's Christmas In The Kingdom and share them with me. I love to see what y'all are up to. Until Next time...
