When arranging your holiday vignettes, keep in mind the Rule of Three and odd numbers.
I love the idea of using your favorite black and white photos to create a wreath. Here, there are a few repeated “threes.” First, the grouping of 3 white things — the white candle, the bowl of meringues, the wrapped gifts — all placed at 3 different heights. There are also 3 different elements to this vignette: the wreath; the floral arrangement; the grouping of white things.
Here, Nienke of the Revel Blog creates 3 paper pom-pom snow balls at the center of her all-white vignette. She places the candle-filled cake plate, the snow balls and the vase with white berry branches at 3 varying heights, which allows the eye to wander. The mini white-ball ornaments also mimicked in 3 places (in the berries; scattered along the snow ball pots; and on the cake plate).
The olive tree, the star lantern and the wire basket filled with craft-paper wrapped gifts are 3 holiday items amongst a rustic background. I love the weathered window pane leaning against the wall and the paint-worn head. Altogether, an odd-numbered vignette.
Two sets of 3. The mercury ball wreath, the stag and the white grouping on the console table — which in of itself is composed of 3 white things, once again at 3 varying heights.
