Gingerbread Kitchen Centerpiece

I am so excited that I finally got my kitchen table centerpiece finished tonight!!  I have been working on it off and on for a week or so.  What is the most exciting part is that there are only three things I purchased new this year for this look.  Those are the gingerbread man cupcake ornaments I used in my centerpieces!! 
Don't you LOVE how this looks?? 

I have had these red/white candles for about seven years or more.  I rarely burn them, so they are in fairly good shape.  A few dings here and there, but I can't part with them.  I love them!  I placed them on top of some icy looking candlerings I got from Hobby Lobby years ago.  LOVE those on my old "silver" candlesticks I got from Kirkland's back in the day.

Did you notice the cookies hanging from my chandelier?  I have done that same look for seven years now, and I am not tired of it yet.  Those cookie ornaments came from Old Time Pottery seven years ago.  I had to rig one up this year with picture wire because I lost the string.  I just wrapped greenery around it from the picks I use in the light.  I don't think anyone will notice!!

LOVE these silver/white snowflakes...Dollar General last year.  I saw them again this week.  They are supposed to be ornaments, but I use them all over the place.  Still look good and haven't lost their glitter.  The snowflake votive holder came from Hobby Lobby year before last.  $2.99 with half off.  Wish I had bought more than five of those!!!
Random shots of my votive cups and my cupcake ornament arrangements....funy how you can see something and you  just know!!

Love how this turned out!!  I really like the "price" or lack thereof even BETTER!!! 
Working a little in the living room now, and I also made a hot choclate station for the kiddos!! I'll be sharing that soon. It is C-U-T-E!!!!
Stay warm!!
