"Christmas…So Soon?
How we Decorate at Our House"



It just hit me…Today!  Yes, Thanksgiving is only a week away, and for me, in addition to a wonderful Thanksgiving meal shared with family and friends…we will start decorating for Christmas!  Well, actually we will start decorating just a little before Thanksgiving, but we'll finish the outside the day after.  What are your plans?? 

This really is a "big" deal in our home!  If you can imagine being in the floral design business for so long and having a "Christmas Shop" each year for many years, I was always so tempted to "bring my work home with me"!  I just had to have that extra-special treasure or that Santa that I couldn't live without — to make  decorations in our home different and unique.  I suppose you could say we do it right when it comes to our Christmas decorating!  We have so many decorations, in fact, that I do not remember a year when we have actually used everything at once.  The one exception was maybe in 2006 when our home was on a tour of homes…that year, I guess we came as close as we ever have to using all our decorations at one time! Each box has to be brought down from the attic before the decision is made as to what we will use and what may end up going back up the steps and waiting until next year! 

WOW, just writing about all this really gets me in the mood.  My mind is whirling around with thoughts of what I need to do.  I am already thinking about where things will go this year so that our grandchildren have lots of fun in our "Christmas House"!


"Christmas Trees!  Let's Get Started…I'm Ready to Decorate!"


These unique and special trees are found in our house in many locations.  There is our extra large tree that completely blocks our front door; nine feet tall, and at least five feet wide. Since all our doors are glass, this is the one everyone can see as they ride by or arrive at
one or our Christmas gatherings.

Then there is the slim two foot tree on the nearby table which I LOVE! This is my "bird tree" and is filled with nests, leaves, and berries. An elf table tree is in the center of our island in the kitchen where cute elves and Byers' Choice Carolers abound in all shapes and sizes.

Without going into great detail about each and every tree in our home, there is a small, two or four foot tree in each bedroom and bathroom, slim pencil trees on either side of our front door, and two four foot table trees lighting our long back porch.
 Oh, and I musn't leave out my very favorite trees – the ones in our pergola. Their heights vary between five, seven, and nine feet tall and I cluster them all together. These tall, slim pencil trees are tied together and also tied to the arbor which encircles our favorite enclosure. They are filled with "outdoor" surprises such as birds, nests, and wild berries — fresh ones, such as nandina, holly, and whatever else I can find outside. You can just barely see them in this picture. This was taken about three years ago.  The pergola is now totally closed in on the top and all the sides with wisteria, and lady banks climbing rose bushes. It's like a secret garden out there!

 We also go out and pull down fresh honeysuckle vine from the nearby woods – yes, the very same honeysuckle that I use in almost all of my wreaths. We twist, curl, and tie these together around all three trees at once in many wild and curly shapes. They actually look like vines have grown right up around them where they stand. 

After dark they look so inviting we just cannot resist enjoying this outdoor space with a fire in the fire pit blazing away right in the center.

In the next newsletter, I will concentrate on decorating your large tree!  I'll tell you as well as show you in pictures what we put in our tree making it look "wild, beautiful, and different"!
