Christmas At My House

I've had several people ask me to publish pictures of my Christmas decorations.  There's nothing special about them.  It's just that this is the first year I have decorated since my Gentle Ben went to heaven.  The whole time I was decorating I kept thinking, "Ben would be so happy."  He loved Christmas better than any man I know.  He always tried to be the first in our neighborhood to have his decorations up.  The year before he died, the kids came down and had them up in October so he could enjoy them.  I have the best children in the world.

Okay, so here are some of my decorations.  

 This is my living room

 My Christmas Tree - Not lighted.  It is a slim tree
Christmas Tree all lit up
I always take a big roll of wide gold or iridescent ribbon and push it into the branches of the tree as my first step of decorating it.  When it's lit, the lights reflect off it and gives the tree more sparkle.  I also put ting-a-ling in it.  This year I only put it around the bow.

Of course, this is my fireplace with mine and Max's stockings.  I used deco mesh and added a garland of white poinsettias.  The JOY is a set of 3 stocking holders.
 My coffee table.  At first I had the tree in the middle by itself but felt the table needed something more.  So I had an extra wreath, so I put it around the tree, filled in the open space around it with red balls, added some red balls to the wreath, then twirled red ribbon around the wreath.  
My dining room table.  Got the place mats at Kohl's at 60% off.  I've had the napkins and napkin rings for a while but never used them.
My centerpiece.  I filled a brandy snifter with red balls, and wrapped two sprays of white poinsettias around it.  Very simple.
My front door holding the wreath I made this week.  We posted it earlier this week.
 My mailbox didn't escape being decorated either.  I used deco mesh on it.  Jacob told me it was a little fancy for his taste. LOL  You never have to worry about what that child thinks.
