This year I went 'au naturel' with the decorations throughout our house, but since I started the weekend after Thanksgiving, I have already had to refresh my greens and Nandina berries with new cuttings. Our 15' Norway Spruce is so gorgeous, and takes up the entire sunroom, but sadly it is dropping all of it's needles with the cats venturing underneath and the dog's tails wagging in it's boughs. I fear it will have to come down right after Christmas.
[ We still will always have a fresh cut live tree. We love the experience as a family to go out and cut one down the day after Thanksgiving.]
Here are some highlights of the decorations in our home.
Here are the decorations in Bethany's home:
A true highlight of my holiday was offering the Christmas decorating service to clients. I decorated with the family's own trees, ornaments and lights but added the ribbon, branches and some extra touches. This family was so grateful and appreciative of what I did. Bringing Christmas to their home was truly an honor.
I hope you are savoring the journey to Christmas!
Bethany and I wish you and your families a glorious holiday and a very happy New Year!
Thank you for your support and inspiration this year!
