We’re back once again, to finish up the tour of the Holiday House and I hope you’ve all enjoyed this gorgeous home decked out from head to toe with Christmas cheer. We’ll pick up in the hallway outside the grand dining room. This is a large candle arrangement in the hall. Really large!
And here we have the elegant and grand formal dining room, which is totally breathtaking in calm shades of silver, cream, taupe and bronze.
This large mirror is on one wall.
And this is looking towards the front door and foyer.
An absolutely stunning table.
Moving on down the hall, there is a large formal study and they decided to outfit this room in nothing but nativity scenes, so there are an abundance, in large and small.
All shapes and sizes.
And even a nativity nestled in pretty urns with baubles and pretty balls.
Another table in the hallway.
Moving up the stairs to the guest quarters, this is the landing as you go up. My friend, Cindi, the designer did all of this area in reds and greens and she does a fantastic job with the florals. She knows how to do it up right.
She gave me some pointers on how to put arrangements like this together, so I’m going to have to try it out myself. Lots of different textures is one of the secrets.
On the upstairs console table are the 2 reindeer that you might remember from the floral design store, when we were in there for open house. I love these guys and this table is beautiful.
Another beautiful swag arrangement at the top of the stairs. So lush and pretty!
In the center of the hallway up here, Cindi added this large round center table and decked it out with fabric, bows and all things pretty, even a lamp. Love this, she did an excellent job on it all.
Another small arrangement along with a Christmas pillow sits on a chair in the hall. Think about adding red flowers to some of your arrangements for a fun look.
Another little alcove that Cindi did.
Moving on to the upstairs study, another pretty wreath hangs on the door.
And the shelves were decked out with all sorts of Christmas cheer.
Another tree in the study, with some flying angels, so very pretty.
A chair in the study gets decorated for the Holidays too.
Moving on to the upstairs guestrooms, this is the Africa room, with a tree all decorated in African ornaments and colors. How fun!
In the bathroom, this cute little arrangement of whimsical animals sits on the countertop. How fun!
This is where Elizabeth, our missionary, stood greeting all the guests who came through the house and telling them about the missions opportunities.
Another tree in that room.
Yet another guestroom, with what looks like the 3 wisemen.
Another pretty tree in here.
More pretties on a side table.
Fireplace mantel in one room.
Another dresser decorated for Christmas.
A gold tree tucked in a corner.
And some carolers.
Moving into one of the guest bath areas, red was chosen as the accent.
With some pretty feather trees.
Going downstairs to the media and playroom area, another arrangement is on the stairs.
And this cute vignette greets us at the bottom of the stairs. How cute is this? I totally love the hot chocolate mugs just waiting on company.
An alpine tree and village is downstairs too.
Along with a very colorful white tree. This area was decorated for the children.
With stuffed animals, toys and lots of bright colors. A kid’s paradise!
And Poo sits on the spiral staircase, which goes up the kitchen.
More pretty colors.
And finally, we are at the end of the tour! I hope you enjoyed it as much as we enjoyed doing it.
It was a fun time and these pics give you a small glimpse of how stunning this house really was! Now, I know you are all ready to get started with your decorating too, right?! Right!
I’ll be finishing my decorating this week and then it’s time to party!
Those are beautiful displays but I sure would hate to be the one that had to put all that away after the holidays.
