Christmas Decorations

This year, not much changed with the red and silver areas of the house. I decorated less upstairs in the den but added some color to the garland on the banisters. I used some of the bells I purchased from Etsy upstairs and moved a few things around. CHRISTMAS 2019 Last year I used silver candlesticks, votives, a red and cream striped table runner, pinecones, and white poinsettia arrangement on the coffee table. I’d been collecting silver Christmas decor for years. After Christmas 2018, my mom and I found a lot of red and silver ornaments at TJMaxx so in 2019 I added red to my silver tree. I bought tons of green stems and picks, red berries, red ribbon, and a silver star topper. I wrapped all of Matt’s birthday presents in red and white paper so it matched but it wasn’t technically, “Christmas wrapping paper.” I was pretty happy with this area of the house last year.

Front Door Christmas Decor

Last year I purchased this flocked garland from Pier 1 and I added some flocked picks and pine picks to a wreath I had made a couple of years ago. I did not add any color, keeping it neutral. It was boring, so as my mother suggested, this year I added color. I found some red berry picks and red velvet ribbon. I had planned to drape two strands of the red ribbon on the garland but it was too wide, so I just tied a strand on each side. I also had two little black planters with mini Christmas trees beside the door last year but I decided the planters were too small. I thought about bringing out my blue and white fish bowl planters and putting mini Christmas trees in them with red bows but since I have the little juniper trees right by the door, I think the garland and wreath will do.

Fall Kitchen

I did a little decorating in the kitchen. While shopping online, I picked up some little salt and pepper shakers and a pumpkin trivet. I found these cute towels from Williams Sonoma. I found the soup tureens at Kohls as a part of a fall vignette plan. I bought a tray and repurposed a pumpkin sign I got last year. But it did not go as planned. So I abandoned the plan and kept it simple. I continued the dining room theme of oranges and eucalyptus picks to the kitchen. I had a couple of mercury glass pumpkins left over so I put them, eucalyptus, pumpkins, and oranges in the display cabinet in the kitchen. Nothing too exciting. I like keeping all of my counters pretty clear so I do not have to move anything out of the way when I want to cook or I bring out any small appliances from my pantry. Once I purchase a new kitchen table and chairs, I will have more to decorate in the kitchen. We have done …
