For me it was discovering these gorgeous embossed red mercury glass trees at HomeGoods. It was a big departure form last year’s turquoises and green color scheme. I wove in pine garlands, twinkle lights, and added a few ombre bottle brush trees.
Dangling from the garland I hung mini 1940’s inspired Christopher Radko Shiny Bright bulbs. If you put me in front of an aisle of Christmas decor I am immediately drawn to the the glass ornaments. For years my parents have been gifting us collectible Christopher Radko glass ornaments.
Mixing high and low is one of my all time favorite tips to creating irresistiblly cohesive decor. I am confident that I am not the only one who loves to drive around town looking at everyone’s outdoor light extravaganzas. The large surface is ideal for wrapping gifts, putting together puzzles and playing games, and is the hub for Sunday football appetizers plus a whole lot more.
This year my husband assembled the latest Fixer Upper dollhouse from Joanna Gaines Magnolia line Hearth and Hand from Target. Both Chloe and our neighbor Harper had fun decorating and rearranging all the chic wooden furniture.
We added festive cheer to the outside porch with mini bottle brush trees.
This year I purchased a large black iron and glass lantern from Wisteria Flowers and Gifts and filled it with a collection of green and red ombre bottle brush trees and flickering faux wax lights. This trio came with batteries and a handy remote that can run for hours or can be set on a timer. You don’t need to be surviving an Upstate NY Winter to appreciate these beautiful throws.
I scored these vintage nordic skis with leather straps years ago at a local yard sale for $40. At the time I thought that was a bit too much to pay but I never looked back after bringing them out at Christmastime. On top our grand piano I set up a snowy winter wonderland village.
My collection of white pottery stayed out and I blended in additional red decor and a very MERRY light up marquee sign. Just a few weeks ago I decide to paint a Christmas theme chalkboard canvas art for the morning room. I do miss my floral art but when I revisited my Pinterest board Christmas is Coming and saw this quote I needed to be reminded how important being with family is around the Holidays.
A simple trio of flocked trees in a navy ceramic tray take center stage on the coffee table I turned to my friend Olivia Marsh from RocPenInk for some creative calligraphy handwriting. I couldn’t help sharing how similar our rescue Bo looks to my Commander Reindeer pillow.
I had all intentions of having images of our family members in each window but that didn’t get done before the photo shoot.
