Wow, it's been a busy two weeks of Christmas projects and decorating around here. Of course I can think of many more things I'd like to do, but I've decided to stop
We lucked out with a White Christmas last year...one can only hope it happens again.
Come on over to the Sugarplum House...pass the
You'll be greeted by the Fresh Magnolia Wreath in the Living Room.
I found these little trees at a nursery several years ago, and have yet to tire of their cuteness.
Keeping with the snowflake theme, I tied glitter flakes to the top of each. A glass bowl of pine cones with sprigs of spruce add to the natural warmth.
Behind you on the bookshelves, you'll find 3 of my favorite nativity scenes (not quite the set-up as Megan's beautiful nativity! And don't you worry, I have big plans for these naked bookcases!).
The glittered NOEL mantel adds so much sparkle to the room, and the kids love to play with the stuffed nativity on the hearth.
Another little tree and some greenery add to the festivities on the tables.
On to the Dining Room, the decor from the Fall Mantel now lives on the piano, and the table is decorated with simple silver candlesticks, berries and greenery.
The kid's rooms even have a little dose of Christmas decor! They feel so important being included.
The Hand Towels in the Guest Bath are holding up well, and they look so cute with another mini-tree (yeah, I stocked up on them!).
In the Kitchen you'll find more touches of Christmas. The reindeer tray from Ikea makes me happier than I'd like to admit, and I love gazing out the window past the Fresh Cranberry Wreath.
The Christmas cards are arriving every day now, and my cabinets are filling up nicely. We love seeing all our friends and family on display!
The Breakfast Room is a fun spot with the Candy Cane Runner and Felt placemats, and the table is ready for eating Christmas treats.
The Den is family central and decorated with a warm and cozy vibe. The stockings are ready for Santa, and Christmas lights in the fireplace add a fun glow. My son kicked in his decorating skills again and filled the wire basket with pine cones, ornaments and shiny beads.
The side tables and coffee table have their own Christmas vignettes.
And at the center of it all, stands the Christmas tree....decorated in all green lights, with a few strands of white star lights, and of course...lots of snowflakes!
Mr. Sugarplum insisted on the all green tree, and I'm surprised at just how much I like it! The rest of the ornaments are pictures of the kids every year, homemade ones from school, and special ones we pick up whenever we travel to a new place. It's fun to pull these out and remember sweet 'baby times' and trips. It makes decorating the tree sentimental.
I'm almost finished with shopping and wrapping, and the Red and White Packages are taunting the kids under the tree (even though they aren't for them!). Thank goodness for the Advent Calendar Tree to help ease the wait until Christmas!
Well, that wraps the Tour of Sugarplum Casa. I wish I could see all of your homes as well...you're such a talented bunch that I know they look beautiful!
I'm taking some time off to really focus on family for Christmas, but I have a super exciting line-up you don't want to miss! I'll tell you about it soon. Until then...Happy Weekend, friends! I hope it's full of raindrops on roses and whisker on kittens! ;)
