Wanted to share a few pictures of our home
all decorated for Christmas "last" year...2010
(I am determined to recap December even if it takes all of Jan 2011!)
Winter vibe more than Christmas this year...trying to mimic what Pottery Barn did as display in their stores this year...did you see? Simply stunning!
White fur, natural elements like Boxwood, grapevine and white flowers, some mercury glass and lots of white candles! Loved how it came together
And since there was alot happening next to the stairs, I decided to abandon my usual greenery business and just used the lime green "scarfing" and lots of leopard /animal print ribbons and hung lime green glitter snowflakes
Dining room I used more lime green...in candles and other accessories and all my Fitz and Floyd Town&Country dishes, white Pointsettas and I hung my collection of Gorham Silver ornaments. I love to showcase them this way!
Lots of vintage balls inside my Pine cabinet...simple...
More piled in a white ruffle bowl...again, simple
and makes me so happy to see!
Pink and green glitter cone tress...$3.99! They are so fun...my Rooster is all pretty too with her silk ribbon and pink ball necklace
My favorite green birdcage with a winter vignette inside...
In the breakfast room I tied fresh greens and red balls to the chandelier...I also added lots more animal print ribbon - have loved using that!
Fresh greens, pine cones, red balls and lots of white candles
in the Family Room
Gum drop and Peppermint topiaries that the kids and I made while on bedrest with Christian...this was their 4th Christmas with us and although I am tired of them they are sentimental and I cannot imagine not using them...they are sitting on some sweet snow...sugar!
A favorite new tray from HL...1/2 off...
I'll share the trees, mantle and back staircase another day...
We have received over 25" of snow in the last 30 hours it was magical and we have had a great weekend sledding and building igloos, having a snowball fight, enjoying Chili with friends and consuming LOTS of Cocoa!
