Christmas Coke Crate as a Centerpiece…

Well…it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas at my house!  Most of our decorations were brought up from the basement last night.  It took a few people and a lot of huffing and puffing, but I am grateful for the extra hands 🙂

While down in the basement, I brought up one of my old Coca Cola soda crates.  I decided to incorporate it with my kitchen decor.  I love the worn red and white lettering – perfect vintage Christmas colors.
