This is the last week the home is on tour so to make it extra special we decorated it for Christmas! Let me get the logistics out of the way first. The tours are every day from 11-5 through Sundsy Nov 29th (except Turkey Day!!). Ok back to Christmas…. I say “we” because I had lots of elves. Thank you Lynn, Christi, Jenny, Blaine, Mom, Aunt Kem, Stella and Ilza! Y’all are the best! We started with the room colors, the boxes of past Christmas items I owned, natural cuttings from yards 😁, and lots of energy. I like Christmas decorations to reflect your home. So these decorations respond to the environment they are in. To preanswer a few questions… The greenery and tree are real. The tree came from Home Depot and the wreaths and garland from lowes (they get points for being the only ones with their natural Christmas ready to sell)…. Ok Jenny might have helped the guy unpacking the boxes to get the wreaths and garland out because she was the first Christmas buyer at both stores. The sled is from a family Christmas trip to North Carolina in 1978. And the last fact before the photos Christi, Lynn and Jenny did “enhance” the wreaths and garland with spruce and magnolia. I find that store bought wreaths are a good base but are never full enough. The photos start from the beginning to the finished decorations. Now onto the photos….
Now back to preparing for Thanksgiving!
