Deck the Halls!

I admit, I'm a bit of a minimalist when it comes to decor -- clean surfaces, not to much tchotchke and minimal clutter. But all bets are off when it comes to Christmas! Lots of glittery and shiny ornament covered surfaces. Although it took a bit for us to get in the mood this year, we chugged along (my mother in law insisted) and did a more subdued version of our particular brand of decorating. We're not totally done but here's most of it. 

Light pink, white and shine….
The kids love it!  A has told me that 'it's wonderful and very, very cute.' (!?)

I love a laden tree. 


We attempted doing no red so even the kids' PB stockings are put away this year


The foyer



Nooks and crannies



Even the powder room got into the act. I omitted the picture of the christmas tree on the toilet though… you're welcome



Our merry mantle


Maybe just a little red for our North Pole breakfast--- more about that tomorrow!



I love holiday themed dishes and napkins and they're the first thing I pull out when getting ready for Christmas.



Linking up with Andrea today for the final installment of the 'Come on In' Series.

  9. I like seeing the different colours people use to decorate. It inspires me to move away from the normal red and green of the season.
