It's not even Halloween yet, so why a Christmas post already? If you're like me, the older I get, the longer it takes so I'm starting early. I recently read that if it helps to reduce stress, then go for it. These are actually pictures from last year that I never posted.
So I am starting with the foyer, as you come in the front door.
A white and silver decorated tree in a porcelain fish bowl sits at the bottom of the steps.
Santa and his reindeer are my greeters.
A garland adorns the staircase. I loop it around so we can still grip the handrail. Safety first!!
At one time I enjoyed decorating with fresh greenery but I like it to stay up for awhile and I don't like the mess.
On to the living room, which is just a small room to the left off the foyer.
Two marble pedestals hold silver arrangements.
My nativity is displayed here.
Moving on to the dining room--
My silver deer is included in my centerpiece, but is removed when we dine here.
This epergne lives here on my buffet, but I change the arrangement for Christmas.
The dining room tree is decorated with silver, crystal, and burgundy decorations.
I love using silver trays in decorating.
There are lights under the deer but I forgot to cut them on for the picture.
Christmas Eve dinner is held in the dining room and I use a fresh arrangement along with the other decor on the table.
My tea cart is ready for service.
Stopping here for now, will post the rest in a day or two!!
Thanks for stopping by!!
