Christmas In The Entry!
I love having a tree in the entry. I always decorate a fall tree and then switch it all over to Christmas after Thanksgiving, or as in this year, before Thanksgiving due to a full calendar and didn’t want to get behind.
The entry is the easiest room to decorate…
Holiday Touches In The Living Room….
I’ve used brown and gold in our living room andy I was wanting to add a pop of color. I finally decided on a turquoise color. It could also be called a peacock blue, too. Haven’t figured out the difference yet. I found some pillows and a few accent pieces. I plan on new window treatments but haven’t decided on an idea. We bought new leopard print carpet a few months ago, which I love!
Red and green decorations have to be my all time favorite at Christmas! Ribbons, nutcrackers, pillows, brush trees, shoes, elves and of course a children’s Nativity is usually what I put in this room. Each year, it is a little bit different simply because I have to have change. I love adding new things and putting them in different places.
Next stop is the Living Room….see you there!
We glassed in our patio a couple of years ago and it has been a blessing to use for family times of watching Christmas movies and gathering to visit and watch the kiddos play. I wanted to do the snowman theme since the kids tend to end up in this room when they are visiting.
The large snowman in the tree was a gift from my sweet friend, Carol, over 10 years ago. I’ve always loved that snowman and bring him out each Christmas. This Christmas, his place was actually in the tree!
Several years ago I came across a picture in my scrapbook from when I was dating Jim. We were at Church Ski Camp in Colorado. We wrote our names in the snow and later a friend, Robin, walked by and saw it. She took a picture of it and sent it to me at a later time. I love that picture and have cherished it for years. I found the perfect frame and I bring it out each Christmas.
That is the first decorated room on my blog tour…..now on to the next room.
