Seasonal Decorating

Holiday Home Tour 2012

Tuesday, December 18th, 2012

My friend Nester is having her annual Christmas Tour of Homes party today so I thought I’d share a few images you haven’t seen (and a bunch you have, ha!).  I used a lot of blue around the house this season since it really is my favorite to decorate with, but there is some red in the courtyard and a dash of pink in my office and the kids’ room. 

Here’s the grand finale so to speak – with some scenes I’ve snapped over the last few weeks from different spaces in our home all dressed up for the season and ready for our weekend party which we throw every year.

White + Blue Christmas Tree

Thursday, December 13th, 2012

We’ve had a flocked tree for three years now and I’m totally hooked on them!  It’s the one way we can have a white Christmas in our home since we don’t get snow here.  I loved the idea of using blues and greens to complement the mantel garland, and this year the stand sits inside a gray Colonial Mills braided woven basket.  It’s our blue and white Christmas tree all decked out for 2012!

I found this beautiful peacock blue ribbon with gold trim for half price at Michaels and couldn’t resist crimping and weaving it through the tree like party streamers.

I also opted for two strings of white globe lights instead of twinkle lights… I think I’ll string them outside when Christmas is over… I ordered them from Novelty Lights a few months ago and they come with real glass bulbs so you have to be careful with them but I love them!
