With only one day left until Christmas, I finally had an chance to take a few photos around our home. Thank goodness for help from my stylist friends. Together, we created a Holiday theme of silver, gold and red that is both cheerful and collected. We shopped the house for vintage items, and with a touch of old/new and fresh winter greenery, I’m pleased with our Holiday decor for 2011.
I mentioned before that the Christmas Tree in our living room is an artificial Balsam Fir, courtesy of Balsam Hill Christmas Tree Co.. I love it sans ornaments. Pretty, no?
Our family room has a more fun and cheerful vibe since that’s where we spend most of our time. We do a real Balsam Fir Christmas Tree every year, but this year we opted for a Fraser Fir from a near by farm. Both boys helped dress the Christmas Tree this year… it was fun!
One night, the boys and I were looking for favourite ornaments, Blair snapped this photo of us. A favourite of mine now of course.
There’s also festive touches in the dining room and each of the bedrooms, but you’ve seen the gist of it here. Have you finished decorating for the Holidays? Or should I say, are you ready for the Holidays? Thankfully, we are. With the exception of picking up our fresh turkey tomorrow, we have a pretty relaxing Christmas eve planned. Christmas day we’re hosting family, and this year we’re about 20 people. I’m looking forward to good times in the coming days with family and friends… how about you? Happy one day left -
