Adventures in Decorating: playroom refresh

We had the Pottery Barn Cameron shelves painted white and moved both desks into the playroom. It’s not done yet but here is the progress so far.

Adventures in Decorating: It’s a simple Red and White Christmas

My Favorite Christmas Decoration. My Godmother's Nativity Set.

My Favorite Christmas Decoration. My Godmother’s Nativity Set.

I kept it very easy this year. Red, White, a little bit of silver. The new polka dot ribbon is velvet, such a nice change for my glitter torn hands.  The secret to the mesh in the tree is to really shove it in there. The silver little tress were $1 at Dollar Tree and the sparkly snowflakes will stay in our house until Valentine’s Day. I forgot to take pics of the bathroom, but it’s  got the Grinch bobble-head in it again for when the holiday spirit is hard to muster!  I took a leap and wrapped the presents to match the decor this year.  Hobby Lobby’s wrapping paper is the best and I’m never buying anything else.   I’m publishing the pics rough and I’ll come back and arrange and provide details later, I have some last minute presents to wrap Lovies. I hope you and yours have an amazing, joyous and wonderful Christmas and Holiday Season!

Best,

Laura

Adventures in Decorating: The Delta Zeta Turtle Xmas tree

The rest of the house is fairly simple this year. Red , white and silvery color scheme. Not a lot of mesh or sparkly beaded garland. I wanted to have one thing that was. Little wild and crazy. I’m hosting the local alumnae group Christmas party this year so I decided to do a pink and green table scape and tree this year. I saved all my turtle ornaments for the dining room and kept the green to a minimum so the pink would blend with the room. I lie the Dr. Seuss esque fuzzy line green and pink chenille swirly balls so I put them all on the table scape and really layered on the white and pink underlights. I may add more tithe dining table come party time. But for now it’s my Delta Zeta tree and table.

Adventures in Decorating: The lights are up

Babu and I took advantage of the warm night before the coming snow storm and got the rest of of the lights up on the porch and across the front garden. The two metal topiaries I wrapped in lights to look like trees. One has cutting from Martha places inside it to add more green and one is the ivy I am training. Porch isn’t done for decorating but I am getting there. Pictures of the window boxes in daylight are pending. Happy Holidays.

Adevntures in Decorating: Meet Martha

Every year we get a live tree. The biggest fattest tree we can find. Every year The Destroyer names the tree. This year he named her Martha, our first “girl” tree. In spite of scaling back the progress has been slow this year. Iv’e got more done than this but here is the tree progress so far. I figured out the deco mesh looks best when pushed back into the tree and not swooped or puffed in any way. How are your holiday decorations coming?
