I’m joining in all the fun with the Christmas in July going on at right now at these fabulous blogs..
I wanted to share some of my pictures from Christmas 2011.
Here’s the living room mantel. All of the garland I use is the basic garland that you get at Wal-Mart or Hobby Lobby. I add real magnolia leaves and little cedar branches along the artificial picks.
The Christmas tree has lots of red with touches of gold. The large bow and ribbon are the mesh ribbons.
The top of the entertainment center features a head bust of Santa Claus!
My mercury glass Santa's are displayed on the piano. Last year I decided to coordinate the wrapping paper.
I picked up the three candlesticks at a yard sale last summer. After adding a little greenery, it was a perfect fit for the top of the music cabinet.
On to the kitchen….my favorite thing is the garland running along the top of the cabinets. Once again, I used basic garland with magnolia leaves and small pieces of cypress. In addition, I inserted red poinsettias and red mesh ribbon. At night when the lights on the garland are lit, it is so beautiful! The light tends to reflect off the mesh ribbon. I pull out my Christmas glasses and dishes to decorate the corner cabinet.
Even the top of the refrigerator gets a little whimsical decorations!
I accented the small china cabinet with touches of red Christmas décor…
as well as the china cabinet in the dining room!
And I couldn’t forget the mudroom!
The back door is decorated in candy canes and peppermints!
Thanks for stopping by!
