Twice the fun ~

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.

Merry Christmas


  1. The tree is wonderful and I'm amazed what a lucky daughter you have. To do some decorating for her is one thing, but to put up her tree? That's a great motherly thing to do.

  2. WOW such a beautiful home - love all the decorations. you really did a wonderful job and I know how happy your daughter was when she came home to see the terrific job you did.
    Can I put my order in for next year LOL

    Have a Very Merry Christmas.
