Fa-la-la-la-la..la-la-la-love to decorate for the Holidays!

Well here are a few snaps of my Christmas decor this year. I have had my tree decorated since before Thanksgiving...but I just hate to take photos because my pictures always look so bad. New Years Resolution #1: Learn how to take better photos!

This is my entry way table with a little view into the family room. I love my new candles and stockings. Fun...kindof whimsical with a little splash of color. As you can see.. most of my stuff is all bronze and gold...not a real bright traditional theme!

Here is another shot of my entry table. I just love using apothecary jars to decorate...especially during Christmas and winter. It is very important for me to have the entry way looking festive... it is sometimes the only part of the house people see...plus it is the first impression ( and an easy area to keep clean)

My mantel... the wise men are one of my very favorite decorations. This picture does not do them justice.. they are all about 14" tall. They are the best!


Here is my tree ( well most of it anyways...the bottom is cut off) It is 12' tall and slim so I could fit it in the space available... 12 feet and skinny makes for a tipsy turvy tree. Meggie and I went to St. George a few days before Caylor and the boys showed up... he called and told me my tree tipped over... I was totally stressed. He was teasing me! NOT FUNNY! The big ornament hanging from the ceiling is also one of my favs! If I stand it in front of me it goes to my chest... it is almost 5 feet tall. LOVE IT!


My wreath that is on my door. Right now I am really wishing Mother Nature would "Let it Snow"... I've got snowboarders that are dying to hit the slopes...plus my yard is all dead and ugly- it needs to be covered up and look like a winter wonderland!

Meggie's trees in her room. I loved the cheetah- black and red theme. That is what color her room is! You can't really tell...but the ornaments are purses, shoes, crowns, and dresses. So girly and cute! She loves having them in her room.


That was just a few of my decorations... maybe I will post more photos later of other areas. I have got two parties this weekend and I will show photos of them too. This really is the most wonderful time of the year!
p.s. If you are reading this... leave a comment. If you like my decorations..leave a comment. If you spit on my decorations leave a comment. I have been on a vacay from blogging so I need a few comments to motivate me back. Come on people... show me some holiday love!

Looks fabulous. I know pictures don't do it justice. I tried taking pictures of mine, and it looks so much better in person. I'm sure it looks amazing in real life. I've been trying to find a little something for you, but I can't find anything that is Amy worthy. I'm still looking!

Looks like you had fun at the Festival of the Trees. Oh. . .wait, thats your house.

My Christmas decor=ghetto compared to yours. But, I have been spraying everything with glitter, so does that count?
