Christmas Decorating

Jeff & I did a little holiday decorating last weekend, motivated by all our holiday inspiration images.  I will admit that in between papers, projects and work, I still have a few finishing touches to make... But I wanted to share some today and tomorrow, so that we all have time to inspire each other's decorating too!  Remember to get your pictures ready for our Friday Linky Party!

Last Saturday, my sister came over and helped me get started with our mantel... I noticed that my favorite mantel inspirations had groupings of similar items and/or colors (must go back to my love of symmetry?)  So I went with a red and silver ornament-theme...

I found garland at Wal-Mart for only $2, and battery-powered white lights at Michael's for less than $3, which ended up being much cheaper than purchasing pre-lite garland. 

Most of the other items we already had, with the exception of a few more red ornaments (also found at Wal-Mart for $2.50 for a set of 12)

For our entry table, I found a pretty runner at Home Goods and decided to stick with the gold color-scheme on this table... Adding my 12 Days of Christmas ornaments and gold ornament tree (a yard sale find).

Are you almost done with your decorating?  I have an easy wreath project and a few more decorations for tomorrow (then we can all share in a Linky Party!)  Only 15 days to go... Can you believe it?


  1. Wow, your decorations came out wonderful! Great job :) Very inspirational. We've finished our decorating too and now we can just sit back and look at how pretty it looks. I love this season!

  2. Thank you! Would love to have you link up your decorations in our linky party today!
