IT'S LOOKING ALOT LIKE CHRISTMAS........


I finally got my house all decorated and it's feeling like Christmas!!! I had my annual cookie exchange today so that is why the table is all set.





























I absolutely love this nativity set. Mark and the kids gave it to me for my birthday one year.












It's amazing what you can with a few greens, a few roses and some fresh cranberries.














Every year I try to do something a little different with my tablescape. I used terra cotta pots and spray
painted them white and added fresh greeniers with a big round Christmas ornament in the middle.

































I absolutely love Better Homes and Garden's web site. I got this floral arrangement idea along with the one above from their site.  It it so pretty when you light the candles in the middle.  They are kind of hard to see in the photo. 











If you decide to push fresh greenery around your mirrors, you need to spray it daily with water to keep it fresh through Christmas.

WOW. It all looks so good! I wish you would have told me the part about spraying the fresh greenery sooner. Mine is all dead now. I love the mirror on your mantle and the table looks incredible. It all just looks amazing!!

Your home looks so pretty all decked out for Christmas. I really like what you did with the dining room table with those simple but elegant centerpieces. Thanks for joining my blog party and inviting us in to look around! Merry Christmas! -Julia :-)

Lovely all! Is the word welcome stenciled on your front door? Love that idea!

Mark and Trisha said...

The welcome on my front door is vinyl lettering. It is so easy to put on and if you ever want it to come off you just use a blow dryer. Just google vinyl lettering and there are lots of companies.
