Glamorous Tree Skirt from My Favorite Brocante

beaded embroidered detail

Just look at this gorgeous beaded Indian-inspired full circle silk skirt I found at the flea market for a song...it makes a fantastic Christmas tree skirt! Not for my little tree this year in the corner there (I tried to make it work, but alas, too much!), but for a magnificent, tall, gorgeous tree worthy of such splendor!

isn't this beautiful and Christmas-y?

a la prochaine!

  1. Soooo beautiful! Can't you bunch it up in folds for the small tree? or put the small tree on a tabletop and cover/wrap the tree and cover the table with the rest? such a shame not ot use it. Bravo for the find.

  2. HI Jeanne-Aelia, I will try that and let you know....at first when I put it around the tree and hung over the table to the floor it looked kind of humorous to say the least! but you are right, there has to be a way! thanks for stopping and for the clever ideas!

  3. Bonjour! What a fabulous find - Lovely colours. I'm sure you will find a way to use it. Perhaps a larger table?
    Just notice your two favorite things on your sidebar, silver is one of my favorite things too - rummaging through old antique shops and markets usually turn up beautiful pieces!

  4. Ooh Bonjour, let's go!! Thanks for visiting! I'm determined with this encouragement to find a way to use that skirt. It would look dreadful with me wearing it, trust me!

  5. Lovely colors. Hope you find a way to use it.

  6. Problem solved....I'll post a picture soon....yes, I'm using it!! thanks for suggestions/ideas..


I would love to hear what you think! merci!
