"A Stroll in the Park"

Welcome!!!

Today I will be sharing how I decorated the top of the TV Entertainment Center in the Living Room.....

But first, I want to Thank Claire, over at Claire Justine, for featuring my post, "Under the Sea" Ornaments, Part 1, from last week's Creative Mondays party!!
 Thanks so much , Claire!! And thanks for your very kind words!! I really appreciate it!!

I also want to Thank Sue, over at Sizzling Toward Sixty, for sharing my post,  The "Beach" Beneath My "Under The Sea" Tree,  on her face book site!!

Thanks so much Sue, for the recognition!!  Sue is also one of the hosts of the Over the Moon Party!!

Please stop by and link up to these lovely parties!!

In my previous posts, I have been sharing my late Summer decorating theme in the Living Room......

 "Under the Sea".......
It all started with the idea for decorating my 6 foot white Tree that sits in the corner of the Living Room from Spring until after Labor Day!!

I wanted to decorate it differently after the Patriotic Summer Holidays of Memorial Day and July 4th were over..........

Using sea shells that my dear neighbor, Elly, had collected while living in Miami during the Winters, I decorated the Tree in an "Under the Sea" Theme using the colors of aqua with a bit of peach.....
 I also decorated the corner over by the stairs using a bit of aqua.......
By decorating the LED Branch Tree here with aqua butterflies, dragonflies and birds.......
Click HERE if you missed that post......

A few years ago, I decorated the top of the TV Entertainment Center  and called it "A Stroll in the Park"..

This year, I decided to do it again but with a few different pieces.....
Picture a Summer day back in Victorian times when Mothers of that Era took their children to the park to ride the Carousel......
Evening is starting to fall and the lights on the Trees are coming on in the park......
Okay, I know there were not any lights on the Trees back then.....LOL!!
On the left side........
An aqua mercury glass candlestick with a flameless candle on a timer......
I tied a bow made out of aqua and peach ribbon to the candlestick.......

I have used these ribbons in other areas in the Living Room......

A LED battery operated Tree on a Timer.......
Surrounded by greenery on the bottom or I should say "shrubs" in the Park.....
These children cannot wait for their Mother to let them ride the Carousel!!!!
She has just gotten up from sitting a spell on the park bench.......
The figurines are from the Home Interiors Party Plan that is no longer in existence....

As are the pictures on the wall..........
The picture to the left shows the wooded area in the Park......

The Carousel sits between 2 street lamps.........
This young Mother decided to take her baby for a walk in her stroller since it was such a nice Summer afternoon......
Her baby started to cry so she took her out of the stroller for a bit.......
The Carousel was bought at Sam's Club many years ago after Christmas on Clearance.......
  This Mother is fixing her daughter's hair since it was tossled while riding the Carousel......
Another park bench offered a place to sit and rest while strolling through the Park......
The Home Interiors picture on the wall to the right depicts a church off in the distance......
Another aqua mercury glass candlestick.....
Along with another LED battery operated Tree..........
This young Lady just met with her Beau who gave her the lovely bouquet of flowers that she is holding........
She is thinking about her beau as she leaves the Park to walk home.......
More greenery or should I say shrubbery in the Park........
You can see that I have strung a set of lights throughout the display.......
 I will be sharing how this all looks in the Evening in another post.......

I hope you enjoyed taking "A Stroll in the Park" with me during Victorian times.......
 I want to show you this picture that hangs on the wall going up the stairs that is also a Home Interiors product and is titled "A Stroll in the Park"!!!!
 It was my inspiration!!!

In my next post, I will be sharing how I added some aqua touches to my existing decor throughout the Living Room.....
 And how I re-did a wreath that I made a few years ago by adding a few aqua flowers........
 So I hope you will be back to visit again soon.......

Summer Led Branch Tree, 2017

 Welcome!!

In the last few posts I did, I have been sharing how I decorated our Living Room for the remainder of the Summer in an "Under the Sea " theme........
 Click Here to see the post about my Summer "Under the Sea" Tree........

I also decorated other areas of the Living Room for late Summer but didn't quite use the Nautical Theme.....

But first, I want to Thank Laurie, over at My Husband Has Too Many Hobbies, for featuring  my post, "Under the Sea" Ornaments, Part 3, From last week's Snickerdoodle Create Bake and Make party!!
 Thanks so much, Laurie!!

Please stop by and link up to this great party!!

Over in the corner by the stairs, is a LED Branch Tree that Joe bought on Clearance after Christmas this past season at Bed, Bath and Beyond.......
You may remember that I decorated it like this for Easter.......
And for the Summer Patriotic Holidays.......
 Now I have decorated it a little differently for the rest of the Summer......
  When I first got the idea of doing a Summer Tree in the Living Room, other than decorating the Tree for the Summer Patriotic Holidays, I bought these ornaments on Clearance one year at Big Lot's after Christmas for $1.00 a pack!!!!!
  I decided to use them on this Tree instead.......
  2 different types of Butterflies........
  Dragonflies and Birds...........
They sparkle because of the LED lights....


You can see on the stairs are the lanterns that I keep there year round and decorate for each Holiday and Season......
I made bows out of the same aqua and peach ribbons that I used through out the Living Room like here on these shell filled jars underneath my Summer "Under the Sea" Tree.....
 Click HERE if you missed that post......

This LED Branch Tree rests on a marble topped table........
The top of the table......
A gold glittered candle in an aqua mercury glass holder.......
Surrounded by various shells......
A few embellished shells, which tie into my Summer "Under the Sea" Theme......
And hanging above this Tree is a wreath that I made and shared in a previous post......
Click HERE if you missed that post.......

This corner in the Living Room....
Ties in nicely with this area of the room..........
   In my next post, I will be sharing how I decorated the top of our TV Entertainment Center for the remainder of the Summer...........
 So I hope you will be back to visit again soon when I share "A Summer Stroll in the Park".......
