A while back I showed you all my front room, alternately called my living room, keeping room, and what-the-heck-do-I-do-with-this? room! Click here if you want to see what it normally looks like, and the process I went through to redecorate it. Definitely worth all the fuss, though, because it was so fun to decorate for Christmas!
Every year I buy a few bags of cranberries to put in my glass candle holders. So easy, and I love the color of the cranberries with the white candles.
I have a little tree for my front window that holds my "Twelve Days of Christmas" ornaments. I never noticed how many birds are in that song, until Nina and I unwrapped these, and she kept saying "What's that Mommy?" and I kept saying "It's...uh...another birdie, Nina!"
As you saw a few days ago in my kitchen/dining room, I love these little pepperberry wreaths, and I think they look cute hanging from a chandelier!
Here's our little manger scene. Nina loves to come and look at the characters, and she tells me the baby Jesus is "a good boy." Don't you love it?
Here's some simple berry garland going up my staircase. I found these at Goodwill in July, can you believe it? And that poinsettia at the top of the stairs is another Goodwill find, totally fake, for $5! Thank God, because it would be dead by now if it was real! (I am not a gardener.)
We are hosting Christmas dinner this year, so I think I will open up the dining room table in this room for the big feast. It will only be the second time I've ever hosted a dinner in here! I'll be sure to show you photos next week as I get the table all ready.
Have a great weekend!
P.S. Someone asked about the photos on my stairway and how I hung them. If you want to read more about it, check out this post!
