A Setting for Christmas Decorating

It's still early, right?  I keep telling myself, 'I am not behind, I am not behind'... I want to join the party today, but I'm a little behind.  I will get there, so could we do another Christmas decoration party a little later?  I would do it, but I'm not sure how.  I will show you what I have done.  That's right, we will emphasize the positive, and not dwell on the negative! 
Mantle--done (see more on mantle in older posts)

Christmas tree was decorated in bronze and gold, to go with the browns in the family room.

I used an assortment of mesh ribbon, ornaments, berries, and a few crystal ornaments to add sparkle.

Top of tree holds a mesh bronze bow, and an assortment of sticks and whatchamacallits.

Foyer tree and table--haven't gotten around to the garland on the stair rail.

Reindeer on server in dining room--need to add candles to his antlers.

Sideboard with reindeer--hmm, not sure... if I get time I will add a small tree in the corner where the fishbowl is.

Arrangement in LR--not quite finished with this vignette, either.

I will complete soon :)

OK, I think I'm done here...

It's so cold here I haven't finished the outside either.  Tune in later for updates :)  As for now, stay warm and thanks for stopping by!!
