Christmas Decor and New Year's Eve Setting

Rain, rain go away!!  It's been raining here for four straight days, snow expected tomorrow!  I am ready for some sunshine!! 

Thought I would finally post a few pictures of Christmas and a couple from a New Year's Eve vignette I sort of threw together at the last minute.  Since we ate out, there are no dishes, just a few decorative type things. 
Can't believe I didn't get a picture of the entire front entrance, but the skates were off to the side of the door.
Family room tree was again decorated with golds and bronzes.  
Tree top
Mantle was similar to last year, but I added a vase with greens, bronze pine stems, and pine cones, which have mini lights. In this picture they are unlit.
Mantle with pine stems lit...
Angels on top of bookcase were purchased at an estate sale woohoo!!  Only problem was when I wanted the candles lit (they were battery operated), I had to climb on a ladder.
 Coffee table vignette--reindeer was purchased this year at Tuesday Morning and candle holder came from an estate sale.

 In the dining room on the sideboard, my epergne was arranged with silver and glitzy fruit.

Another estate sale find, this pitcher held silver and crystal decorations.
DR tree was decorated with silver and mercury glass.
Outside arrangement
All set for New Year's Eve!
I liked these lighted branches this year, can you tell?

Happy New Year--better late than never--thanks for visiting with me, come again soon.
