Now that the holiday season is winding down, I have a little time to work on a few posts. I love decorating for Christmas, and this year I had a deadline. We were going out of town for a few days on December 1st and I wanted all the decor to be up and ready to go by the time I got back. Here's a peak into the front rooms of the house. In my next post, I will put up the pictures of the back rooms, which include the kitchen and family room. Hope you enjoy!
Upon entering the front door, the first decorated tree stands in a fishbowl nestled in a corner by the stairs. The white ornaments were made by my mother, and this year I added different sized snowflakes and a white topper. White mini lights were added to the banister, and I had them on a chaser setting, which made the room feel magical.
Santa and two white glittery reindeer sit under the tree.
My silver neo-classical vase holds a new silver and white Christmas arrangement. The silver and gold deer are also new additions to this table vignette.
The stairs are always fun to decorate, and new white, wispy pine garland was added this year.
I added a swag over the inside front door.
Now on to the living room, which we refer to as the paaarlor, darling!
I found this great nativity which I placed on the console with my white angels and some greenery.
Here's a close-up...
On the bombay chest, I used my sleigh decorated with white ornaments, crystal grapes, and greenery.
I also put a full-sized tree in the corner. I have been using a smaller tree, but decided to use this one. It had a more formal look, with some burgundy-colored balls added in with the silver and crystal.
The fresh arrangement sat on my new tea cart before dinner.
A different angle...
I think that's enough for now! Please come back and take a look at the kitchen and dining room decor. Have a safe, healthy, and happy New Year!!
