Christmas starts early in our home. It’s tradition for us to get our tree on the weekend immediately after Thanksgiving. My husband strings the lights on the tree and I decorate it with the ornaments. Don’t you love my husband’s game ornaments next to elegant ones? 😉
It takes me most of the day to decorate the tree. Every ornament has its spot. I’m kinda finicky that way. Which now that I think of it, may be why my husband doesn’t want to help.
We host lots of holiday dinner parties. It’s our thing. This year I used red accents for the dinner table. I love the look of fresh white flowers and cranberries. It’s simple and classic. Some might say chic. 😉
Aren’t my reindeer plates so much fun?!
Coordinating fancy red cocktails are a must, like this Pomegranate Mojito.
I always give out cookies to friends and family… a lot of cookies. These pretties made it into everyone’s baskets.
I carried the red and white theme into the kitchen. I love using food as decor items in the kitchen, like cinnamon sticks, marshmallows, cherries and candy. I even ran lights all over the counter and used branches that had to get cut off of the Christmas tree to get it into the stand.
I decorated the mantel with a winter-y touch, using mercury glass, pine cones, glitter and candles. Sort of a silver and brown and white explosion of winter wonderlandiness.
There can never be enough glitter. Ever.
I added touches of red in the family room too. The red candles will stay out until Valentine’s Day. I’m always thinking ahead and this time I got free decorating for a different holiday. 😉
From our home to yours, may this holiday season fill your homes with love, peace, and joy!!
