Time to Deck the Halls



I so hope everyone had a fun and Blessed day yesterday with all of your loved ones.  Our day was wonderful, and we all felt so blessed.

Just a few pics from Christmas Decor last year.  Time to get out all of the boxes and start in for this year. This is a look at my dining table last year.


Love this Santa, it was a special gift from many, many years ago.


We always do an old fashioned tree with ornaments from all the past years.  Some from my mom, mil and tons that my children and grandchildren have made.  I love every single ornament on our tree.

Throw in tons of lights and to me it is perfect.

I love this nativity scene, it was my Mil's and I am so thrilled that she gave it to me.  This is the display that I had on the buffet last year. 


Ok, so let the fun begin.

  1. Your dining room table looks stunning, as always. I love the Santa! You have a lovely Christmas tree, too!! I am loving getting new ideas for this year, aren't you?

    I'm so happy you had a great Thanksgiving...we did , too. But I am not looking forward to unpacking Christmas boxes. Where are those elves when you need them?!!!

  3. I'm in the middle of mine, but am taking a break as I decide where I want to put certain things this year. I like to do something different every year, even if I liked the way I had stuff set up the prior year. I'm also trying to figure out what I want to put under my cloches, Marty! : )

  4. What a beautiful centerpiece!! I like your tree because it is the way I do mine. More of what I call the traditional colors and style. Very pretty! We aren't having Thanksgiving until Sunday here so I have to wait until next week to decorate. Have a great weekend!

  7. Marty, I love all my ornaments too,, my tree always looks like a train wreck of ornaments that don't present a theme but each of them tell a story about our family.

    I'm trying to jog myself out of my self inflicted turkey coma and go down and start pulling the Christmas boxes out. So far....not so much. Thanks for sharing your 2009 Christmas, I particularly love the way you presented your Nativity with the cloche.

  12. Well, if that is what you call it...fun?!?!

    I am up to my knees in Thanksgiving tubs. Trying as always to fit all the new, and I didn't even buy that much, in!!

    Maybe tomorrow I will tackle the Christmas tubs.

    I am getting ready to do it though!!

  31. Your tree and decorations from last year are gorgeous! I haven't gotten mine out yet - we're having a different grandchild spent the night each day of their Thanksgiving vacation. I can't wait to start decorating my home soon.

  32. Hi Marty, Your tree was beautiful last year! And I like those dainty tall votive candle holders on your dining room table. Can't wait to see your decorating this Christmas--it's my first year of Christmas time blogging!! Linda

  33. I do remember your beautiful home during Christmas last year.
    I am hoping to do something with the cheese domes and cake plates and domes for your party. As you might remember, I don't have even one real cloche...but can't buy anything now. I have made it a point to do all my Christmas decorating without buying ONE single new thing. Don't you love a challenge.?

  34. Marty your home is beautiful no matter what the season, but especially so at Christmas! I can't wait to see what you do this year!

  38. Marty,
    I'm anxious to see all those lovely treasures you recently purchased showcased in your Christmas displays! ! !This year, as I've begun getting the Christmas decor out, I've changed a few areas to accommodate some "new" finds. . .and put a few "oldies but goodies" in different places. "Shake it up a bit" as we say in retail! HA! Your Santa on the dining table is such a lovely piece. Memories of Christmas past make the Christmas present more meaningful and give us hope that Christmas future will bring about good will to all!
    Fondly,
    Pat

  45. Gorgeous tree! I'm still living with turkeys and pumpkins, but that should change by this next week. If the elves are finished at your home, you can send them here next. I could use some help. LOL
