Christmas Decor, 2012

Whew! That was a lot of work but I am finally done decorating for Christmas, well not quite, but almost. Imagine putting away Thanksgiving decor and party stuff and taking down Christmas accessories from the attic and then decorating. My friend Noemie helped me which eased it up quite a bit. So many large bins!
 
Our carolers will greet you as soon as you enter in the foyer.
 
 
 
Those flowers on top of the pie table have been replaced for a more christmassy look. Look at the photo above.
 
 
Looking to the right is the living room and that is where I always set up the big tree. I had to move furniture around to accomodate the tree and the Christmas Village, which I decided to keep set up here. Last year, I had it in the family room on top of the tread mill.
 
 
 This time, I used the boxes used to store the buildings to elevate the village. I thought that would make it easier to store them back after Christmas.
 
 My friends with me are Brenda and Noemie. Believe it or not, we had another turkey dinner last night. They brought the food and I just prepared some desserts. After eating leftover turkey for 3 days, we had to eat fresh turkey again. I told them to better take all the leftover home cause I am not eating turkey leftover for another 3 days, lol.
 
 
 
 
Now we are going to the  family room.
 
 A Thomas Kinkaid Nativity. I think it is called "Bethlehem" I love it when the lights are on. I forgot to turn on the switch for the picture.
 
 

 
 

My Lladro bells.

A smaller tree in the formal dining room. I mainly use pink, green and peacock accessories here. The ribbon is colored dark pink though it looks red here, and green.

My newest tree.  I bought this wire tree from Kirklands and I decided to hang kitchen accessories on it.
I think it's a very fun tree complete with little coke cans and bottle and some lollipops, cookware and kitchen gadgets.

Love the rolling pins and colander.

My Santa baker!


In the breakfast nook is the heavy wooden snowman I bought from Lynne about 3 years ago.

 
I finally got to decorate the mantel in the family room today.
 
I added ribbons to the 2 lamp posts in the living room.
 
Thanks for stopping by. I appreciate all of you especially the following hostesses whose parties I am linking with.
