Bit by bit the Christmas decorations have been going up at my house. In between working on client's homes and other seasonal projects - at long last I'm done..... or, mostly done. I still plan to put a little holiday cheer into my son's room who will be home from college in a few days, and there's that little tree I wanted to decorate in the family room, and I need to come up with something for place settings for the family get-together. Seems once I get started, I can't stop.. Someone help me!
I have to admit I rearranged furniture a little this year to make room for the tree and accommodate my holiday decorations. Sometimes the 'stuff' in our house gets in the way of our Christmas decorating, but most of it looks better with a little Christmas touch or two and that very 'stuff' can become part of a beautiful holiday focal point.
Welcome to Rachel's home and a short tour of the holiday decor I installed there. Her home marks the last client home I will be decorating this season. I'm cutting off early due to a wedding I will be travelling to the Dallas area for after Christmas.
Starting at the front door - I placed a frosty pine garland with red berries over the door. I actually doubled this up to make it thicker and more substantial looking. Since she has a tall narrow door, I place it only over the door area to crown it. Rachel had an old wreath lying around covered in red apples and plaid ribbon. I pulled the apples and ribbon off and remade it to complement the pinecones and frosty berries of the garland. The bright red poinsettias create a warm welcome!
I finished another home today decorating for the holidays and have included photos below! Betty's house is elegant and tasteful, and the Christmas decorations we added emphasize its beauty without overwhelming.
Her staircase and silly Charlie Brown tree are highlights of her holiday decor. I wanted to show you step by step how I decorated them!
