Family Room Music Table in Chocolate

 Hi there Folks..
I hope everyone has recovered from their Turkey Day meal.. I am slowing coming back to life after being stuffed for days..:)

 I'm partying with Marty ~ dont miss all the wonderous posts at this party...
Marty's Tabletop Party

I think I mentioned a couple of weeks ago my plan to have a Music themed Christmas and thats made it a bit slow going as so much has had to be made.. Not only did I choose music but I also choose not to use tradition colors.. We are running the gamet from vanilla creme to dark chocolate brown and we are Loving it.. My daughter is especially happy since these are her favorite colors.
  I still have so much to do for the tree and the fireplace mantle but I am calling this table done...
  I had the violins on music paper  printed at walmart.. As soon as I got them I wished I'd had them done in 5x7 size but - too late.. Plus these little photos in frames are all over the tree and larger would have been too heavy for the branches...
I started out with plates and filled glass jars and after looking at it for a day I decided it was TOO MUCH and moved some things to other places in the room..
 I love my faux window but Dang it ~ its tough to take a good photo in the area..
.  I used the pinecones Maryanne sent me last year in several areas...
I've had these music ornaments for many years and I always enjoy seeing them when I bring my containers out of storage .. Isn't it fun every year to open your boxes and see the holiday items you've cherished.. For me its almost like visiting with old friends.
 Thanks so much for coming to visit me.. I appreciate it very much and your comments mean a lot to me.
I'll be having tea and cookies on thursday so stop back in and we'll have a great time...
 Happy Holidays Hugs to All  ~!


  1. Hi Sonny,

    Oh I just love your centerpiece and those rich chocolate browns and taupes you have used! So classy looking and warm and cozy as well. Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family!

  2. Sonny, that is a beautiful display and I am loving the chocolate and vanilla colors.

  3. Very pretty Sonny! I love the colors and natural elements, it's always fun when we can incorporate something we've had in a new way-enjoy:@)

  4. I love the chocolate browns so much, my walls are a milk chocolate color and it goes with everything, Love your prettiness here..just beautiful :D

  5. Yummy color combination Sonny...I really love the music theme. I have one music ornament on my tree and I thought of you:)

  6. I love the rich colors you are using and the music theme is really creative! I can't wait to see more! :-)


  7. Hi Sonny,
    Your sofa table looks awesome. The musical theme with the chocolate and cream is so pretty. Very elegant. Like the lil frames with the musical instruments, can't wait to see the tree.
    Hope you are doing well, and glad you had a nice
    Thanks for your sweet comments on my Thanksgiving post, they were so appreciated.
    Have a super week,
    Blessings and Hugs, Nellie

  8. I love your window mirror, too, Sonny! What a great tabletop display. Love the music theme you are doing and that centerpiece is great. I noticed before you moved them the glass pieces filled with a few different items ~ I like the way they look!

  9. I love that centerpiece! Nice interpretation to the theme!

  10. Very pretty Sonny! Sometimes when I have a difficult time taking a photo I will bring in a couple of lamps from another room- sometimes it works & sometime it doesn't! Your second photo is gorgeous and you've captured the warm colors of your vignette. Thanks for stopping by my blog and for the nice comment :)

  11. Very unique, and so creative! I'm loving this!

    I didn't get a new post done. I was all set to start decorating then my dh started cleaning the carpet - throughout the whole house!! I'm waiting (patiently?) for him to get the decorations from the attic! :-(


  12. What a beautiful arrangement. I've been in the mood for browns this year, too!

  13. The table is gorgeous. Love your theme. I love your faux window. There is a high end furniture store close by that has a huge one like yours in one of the room displays. Every time I see it I want one just like it - but smaller. It makes every piece of furniture look great in the subdued reflection.

  14. Sonny, your arrangement is gorgeous. I love the colors you picked. Today while at Walmart I saw that they had beauty dark chocolate colored stockings and tree skirts. I wondered how that would work with a Christmas theme and here you are showing how rich it looks.

  15. I think we are twins:) Did you happen to notice my tree topper tutorial in my sidebar? My colors last year were browns, bronze and aqua. I loved working with those rich colors. Your home is looking gorgeous...I think I'd better click the follow button and watch it unfold!

    Thanks for your visit today.

  16. Absolutely lovely colors in your decor, Sonny ... glamorous & rich.

    Have a beautiful eve ~

  17. oooh, how opulent and decadent this looks, I am loving the chocolate poinsettia's as well..I have to see if I can find some in that color as well. I have ivory and a soft pale green, those chocolate ones would be a welcome addition in our home. Thanks for sharing, can't wait to see the rest of your decor!

  18. How absolutely gorgeous! Thanks for sharing!

  20. Love the music theme and the chocolates and cream. Yummy. I am a new blogger and hope you will stop by for a visit (maybe I'll have my new banner up, or not). I'm becoming your follower.

  21. Oh Sonny, this is just stunning. I don't even know where to begin. I just love it all. The music theme is so wonderful and the colors are just stunning. Every detail is just perfect.
