This year I once again got to play the Christmas elf. While my daughter was at work I went over and decorated her living room for the holiday.
A Christmas surprise!
Well, it really wasn't a big surprise because we had discussed it before hand. But she certainly was pleased when she came home that evening to find her tree up, and her mantle and dining room decorated.
She had decided on a woodland themed tree this year. She had lots of ornaments already...birds, birdhouses, mushrooms, butterflies and some wonderful feathers. I added boxwood, eucalyptus branches, a few silk flowers and a couple of my crunchy garlands.
I really like the tree, but my favorite thing in the room is the mantle.
This mantle is a bit tricky to decorate because it isn't very deep. I went simple with this adorable owl. He is far to cute.
Then a repeat of the tree decorations with boxwood, eucalyptus, more feathers, flowers and a scattering of ornaments.. I love it...and so did she!
This will be my last post until after Christmas as the time is getting close and there is still far too much to do. I want to wish you all a blessed, happy, and joyful holiday.
