Christmas decor

I know I've only mentioned 1000 times that I love holidays and love decorating for them as well. So, here's a brief snapshot of our home right now.

the front (w/ lots of lights...picture of it lit coming soon!)

My sister, Jennifer, introduced me to live garland this year (I'd never really thought of it). I bought a garland of cypress and white pine and have mixed it in with some of my fake. Also bought a real frazier fur wreath this year, wrapped w/ some of the white pine left over. It smells amazing, is affordable (depending on where you shop...ours is from Home Depot) and it's such a nice look!

the welcome wreath (burlap bow made with ribbon from
ballards - i'm not too much of a bright red fan, so i love this)

stockings (hung on the foyer desk with care
....no chimney or mantle for us!)

living room

table w/ Christmas china, new silver
chargers (great deal from Target, if you are
in need!), and lots of candles

This manger scene is one of my favorite Christmas things to put out...it's beautiful, and a symbol of the only real reason that we celebrate Christmas. The arrangement to the left is something i threw together with things leftover! Ended up loving the lights that i stuck down in the bottom of the hurricane.

And finally....

The [big fat honking 8 foot wonder of a] TREE!
(not fully finished, but good enough)

Merry Christmas!
