Last week while my daughter was at work I went over and decorated her house for the holidays. Since she went back to teaching full time this has become somewhat of a tradition. It's fun for me and I know that she likes coming home from a busy day and finding her house all ready for Christmas.
I love this swinging door going into the kitchen - it is the perfect spot for a wreath.
In the dining room I tied some decorative bows on the chairs and added a casual centerpiece - made a bit more elegant with mirrors, crystal candle sticks, and some casually strewn ornaments.
I went a little overboard on the credenza. I filled my wooden box to overflowing with garlands and ornaments and added twinkle lights. It's a bit flashy, but this is the one time of the year that glitter and glitz seem to be okay.
In the living room a very simple mantle...
...she will add the Christmas stockings later.
And across the room the tree - definitely the focal point.
All in gold with leopard ribbon and lots of sparkle.
Aren't I lucky I get twice the fun of decorating for the holidays.
Thank you for visiting.
