It's Christmas in Our Florida Home too!

 Yesterday, we went to church and then I went shopping all day with my daughter, I decided to buy a few Christmas decorations so I can bring the spirit here in our Florida home. I immediately decorated when I got home and I was so tired after I finished because I wrapped some presents too. I was going to post last night but I fell asleep.
 
Anyway, here is how it all looks now.
I only bought a small tree because I have no time to put it down. We are celebrating Christmas early this Saturday with all the kids and then we fly back home to Mississippi the next day.
Can you spot it there?
I already had this long big jar there. I just added some greeneries.
I added various small Christmas trees on the tables.
I brought the runner from our Natchez home. I bought it  from Belize in the Caribbean several years ago . I added some small trees and red candles and red and green candle holders on the formal dining table.
 
I placed santa and snowman candle holders on the breakfast table all of them  brought from the Mississippi home. My luggage was overweight. I had to move some stuff into my hand carry in the airport.
My grandsons were asking me how can the snowmen carry a Christmas tree with their feet, lol.
a closer look of the formal table centerpiece.
Here's the living room again.


Here's a closer look of the tree. It's only 4 ft. tall so I elevated it on a round occasional table.

Now I can rest and just start baking cookies, Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you are all enjoying this Christmas season.
I always appreciate the hostesses of these wonderful parties!

I'm pea green with envy over your vacation home in FL. My DH would move back in a heartbeat if I'd agree to leave the grandchildren...which I WON'T!! LOL

It looks lovely & I know you'll enjoy being able to escape to warmer weather. That is the ideal situation to be able to have 2 homes & not have to drag clothes, golf clubs & tennis rackets back & forth.

How nice that the kidlets will get to join you there & share Christmas. Have a wonderfully Happy & HEALTHY Holiday, Hon!

fondly,
Rett
