This table is on the landing upstairs, so no one sees it except our family.
I am so happy I took the time to decorate it though because I pass it many times each day and
it makes me happy.
The framed map of Paris is always on the table and so are the faux paper whites.
I just added the trees and sparkly NOEL.
See the mercury glass tree in front? I bought it last December.
This year I looked everywhere for a second one and planned to use them on my mantel.
I finally found one (and the store only had one).
My husband then accidentally broke the new one. :(
I never could find anymore, but I actually really like the mix of trees in different materials, so its all good!
I made the ruffled tree.
I started with a shiny tree I found discounted and then took off all the garland.
I then used hot glue to attach layers of white cotton ruffle trim.
The store I got the trim from only had three yards so I ended up having to cut the tree down so the plastic The wood tree was on clearance last year and the white sweater tree I got from Target last year
for only five bucks.
In my entry way I have a red, green and white woodland display.
The mushrooms, gnome and mushroom house were all from World Market.
I bought them last year, but they are selling similar things this year.
I placed the gnome and green mushrooms in a birch basket I found at the thrift store.
The artwork is a gift bag I bought from the 99 cents store.
I cut out the front of the bag and used poster board as backing anf then placed it in a frame I already own.
I finally started to run out of steam decorating for Christmas.
It starts out fun and then I reach a point where I just want to be d.o.n.e.
I just stuck an old wreath up (that I love) and placed a deer candle holder on one side.
On the other side of the wreath I placed two gray frames I own.
In the small frame I simply stamped a red crown on white paper.
The crown stamp was from the cheap section at Michael's and I used red paint instead of ink.
The deer print is another gift bag from the 99 cents store!
Today was my boys last day of school. I love having them home for Christmas break!
So excited to bake cookies and listen Christmas music and go look at lights and go to the movies
and on and on!
