Oh, yes I’ve been decking the halls last week and it’s finally feeling festive around our house. The Welcome Christmas wreath on the front door beckons us inside.
I talked Peter into helping me put up some lighted garland around the door and on the railings this year and I really like it. I think this will be a new tradition for us.
Enter the frontdoor and the foyer table dressed in all the Christmas finery greets you, full of natural elements and a few sparkly wonders. This year, I went with more natural colors of bronze & browns in certain spots. Decided to use some items that are in other rooms of the house, as well as keeping my lady statue & adorning her with a shiny bronze bow. Come on in!
Some fresh cut greenery help to bring in more of the outdoors.
Sparkly netting adds to the Holiday vignette of a natural garden scene. I found these large balls at Hobby Lobby and saved them away just for Christmas. They weren’t sold as Christmas items last year, but I saw the potential in them & filed that idea away.
A mossy topiary fits right in too, as well as the large footed pedestal with moss and the large glass orbs with shimmery ribbon. This is one of my yardsale finds from over the summer…a leaf shaped plate with acorns on the handle. I knew it would be a good thing to use this year in one of my vignettes.
Everything looks just lovely. I really like all the calm natural things that you used to decorate.
It all looks so festive and inviting! I love creating little vignettes around the house. It’s neat how things not intended as Christmas decor can fit right in and look just right.
Was so nice meeting face to face, hope we can do it again soon!

Your home is so lovely on any given day, Rhoda that I knew it would be stunning at Christmas.
I’m holding off until Karla’s party on the 12 to show any pictures. But I can guarantee they come no where near the level of beauty you have exemplified in your decorations.
I love the natural element in your decorating for Christmas. Thanks for sharing.

Oh…so beautiful! Doesn’t it make you feel good to stand back and see what you’ve accomplished?!
a little birdie told me it was your birthday! Happy Birthday!!! Hope you have a wonderful day!
Is your big day…today…Dec. 6th?
Well…I’ve gotten word that it is…so “Happy, Happy Birthday…Rhoda…I hope you have wonderful plains to celebrate that 30 something birthay again….
And I wanted to mention how wonderful your Christmas decorations look…I love the bronzey/coppery accents and ribbon this year…along with a vintage green color…going to use those on some packages in white…and some in brown paper sack paper…I love that with the bronze…and it looks good with cream/gold, too.
