Holiday House

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! The outside of our house is decorated, with magnolia and red berries playing the starring role. Though similar to what we’ve done in years past, we’ve changed things a little. The lacquered red magnolia wreath, from the Magnolia Wreath Company, is a fun new addition. They also come in silver, gold, pink, key lime, white and other colors.

Molly was running around while I snapped photos. She looks great wearing tartan!

Our interiors are about 90% complete. At the rate I’m going, I’ll be finished just in time for our holiday guests to arrive. I just added garland to the dining room buffett and love the effect. Glassybaby is always festive…this one is called Rudolph. How appropriate!

You’ll find lots of sparkle on our tree and throughout the house. Must be my Texas roots. The M you see on the tree is one of many letters we have hung. One for everyone in the family. I think these are great as ornaments, but just as versatile as a place card tied on a napkin or tied on a gift, using either the first or last initial for the recipient. Find them for $3.50 at Pottery Barn!

How does your holiday house look? Are you finished decorating and on to enjoying the season? I’m not quite there, but working toward the day where I sit by the fire and relax! 

Here’s to enjoying the process!
