Friday Favs: Christmas Decorations!

I love getting our house all decked out for Christmas, with poinsettias, lights and little sentimental knicknacks.We put a little tree up at the top of the stairs, and it fits perfectly in the little nook of the landing. It was a Black Friday steal that a friend picked up for me, and I had fun getting it all decked out in reds. There's red balls, red apples, cardinals and poinsettias in just about every nook and cranny of that tree.

In the dining room I went with very Christmas-y colors, and lots of glitz and glamour. The table is set with a fruit bowl with a pretty wreath around it, on a red tablerunner. I put little red candles on either side, surrounded by berries, and decked out the table with red and green chargers, silky red napkins and poinsettia napkin rings.

The antique dresser/buffet is loaded with little boxes that look like presents, and the shelves above it got their own decorations in color scheme appropriate colors.

The bookcase is showcasing our new stockings and the angel holders, both Christmas clearance items I picked up last year. I like how they lighten up the dark case.

On the piano in the living room I've got candles galore, and our nativity scene. I need Lover to build me a creche, but we didn't get around to that this December.

The tree is beautiful, and I am so in love with the topper that I found at Goodwill. It is a 12 pointed star with translucent panes, that let the light shine through. So pretty. It's hard to tell, but we hardly have any ornaments on the tree. We're saving them for Christmas Eve.

The mantel is my favorite part of the decorating this year. I put up a garland and spruced it up with some pinecones and picks, and then tucked glass candleholders all throughout it. The two hurricanes on the ends are holding tons of gold ornaments, and the gold mirror reflects all the light and sparkles and bounces them around the room. So pretty.

So that's my little holiday home tour. Hope you enjoyed it, and more importantly, I hope you enjoy the holiday Season. Merry Christmas!

Everything is very pretty. I love the gold on the mantle. I have never had much gold in our Christmas decor, but this year I've been drawn to it. It's quite lovely.

And, I love your big tree. So pretty!
