Christmas Decorations Up!

So I finally got the holiday decorations up outside and in. And to prove it I thought I'd show you what I ended up doing! 
Today I'll show you the entry  and the living room.
Because I got such a late start, and because we won't actually be home that much during the holidays, I decided to keep things pretty simple compared to what I did last year. 
You can see last year's decor here, here, here and here.
I mostly used what I already had out and created little vignettes throughout the house.
So come on in ...

I didn't do anything special on the bannister this year.  This little vignette greets you as you walk in.
To the left is this vignette under the mirror.

And through this entrance is the living room.

I always do a little display of my favorite vintage and glitzy ornaments on the coffee table.

I love lots and lots of candles during the holidays.



Ornaments in bowls and vases (or the latest buzz word, "vessels") I already had out.

No presents under the tree yet -- I haven't started wrapping yet! (Of course!)

I'll show you the dining room and the family room on Wednesday.
Have a great week!



  1. Deborah, you'll be happy to know that someone (me!) is even later getting decorations and the tree up than you. I think your decorations are just great!

  2. Wonderfully woodsy, Deborah. Just enough to honor the season and not too much to clean up after the first. In honor of tomorrow’s silence I’ll see you Wednesday. May you continue to have a good week.

  3. Love your tree. And that alabaster lamp, it is to die for! But you probably know that already.
