I saved my favorite part - the Christmas tree - for the last stop on the tour of our holiday home. This year, we decided to change things up a bit, and put our tree in the dining room. We're having Christmas dinner here, and I thought it would be fun to be able to see it while we ate. It also happens to be the only room in our house with a street-facing window, so we can now enjoy all that sparkles from both inside and out.
I thought it would be interesting to show you a before and after, so I took this picture after the Dining Room had been stripped of it's usual accessories and the table was pushed to the side . . .
Candyland colors in red, pink, turquoise and green
The 30' wreath rests on the opposite wall and a bench from the kitchen nook was placed below it
Sequined stockings hung by the window with care
(The initials are for Mommy, Daddy & Baby)
Presents piled up in a borrowed (from Kendra) Radio Flyer
Chandelier adorned with "gum drops" and (you guessed it) more crystals!
Thank you for your visit! It's been fun Decking The Halls with you this year, and I hope that today finds you filled with the warmth and beauty that is the Holiday Season.
Wishing you much happiness and love,
