Deer antlers in home decor

I've been a little bit obsessed with deer antlers lately.  I think Terry started it when she found that amazing wooden stag/deer head for her baby's nursery {here}.

We're hosting Thanksgiving here in Nashville this year, so I needed to come up with a quick (and informal) table before the family arrives.  My goal was to use what I have rather than buying new.  With the exception of the champagne-colored chargers (a cross between gold and silver, and therefore … [Read more...]
