Deck the Halls or Rather, The Peacock Room

It's the second week of Susan's Deck the Halls party at . Mary is also hosting Mosaic Monday at Lets have fun, get some decorating ideas, and visit them both and all their participants!
I am taking you today to our dining room. We have a bold wallpaper there with birds. I call them birds of paradise but some say they are peacocks. Anyway, it started my peacock obsession since I did not really want to take the time to peel off the wallpaper and replace it. Here's a smaller green tree with green lights.
I adorned it with a few peacock ornaments.
and inserted peacock feathers in it

You probably have seen my snowman ice cream shop keeper on Pink Saturday. I kept it on the dining room buffet with a bigger snowman. Doesn't he look like he is the supervisor with a whip? LOL! That little snowman better do his job right!
Thank you Mary and Susan, for hosting these 2 great parties!
Thank you all for visiting. Please forgive me if I do not respond to comments right away. I am sailing on the Caribbean sea aboard the biggest ship in the world, the new Oasis of the Seas enjoying its maiden voyage! Check out the ship at, it's huge! If placed vertically, it is higher than the Empire State building; it is larger than Queen Mary 2, it has a
Central Park place, a boardwalk complete with a carousel, 2 rock climbing, zip line, water skiing, 25 shops, etc.
I am posting this in advance. See you soon!

What a pretty tree, Christine! I love your collection of peacock ornaments! And your little snowmen are so cute! Have a wonderful week!...hugs...Debbie

Sue said...

Wow, that tree glows! I may have to try one with colored lights again. I've used white for so long that I've forgotten how pretty it can be to add color. I hope you are having the best time ever!!

Welcome home from your cruise!
Your little tree looks beautiful. The colors are so exquisite together. I don't think I would want to take the wallpaper down either, LOL! It makes a great backdrop for your tree though.
The flamingos in your previous post are gorgeous! What stunning creatures they are, I bet they're ornery little birds somehow. Maybe I'm wrong!

Seems you and I have a penchant for peacock feathers and birds! My dining room tree is decorated with these. Yours is lovely- and I am one of those odd souls who likes wallpaper! Your mosaics are so nice, too. Love the green lights, Christine. Do you ever stay home? LOL
