Dressing up the buffet..it's hard to see but I have two bowls of gold and bronze christmas balls, and my tealight snowmen.
The two trees flanking the buffet still have to be decorated, and the tables they are standing on are actually two of those plastic drawer storage cabinets that I dressed up with two cut up tablecloths.

Ohhhh and this...this is the 8ft+ snowdrift in our backyard. The back fence is 8ft...the drift actually goes higher than that just behind the tree. Good thing we don't need anything out of the shed too!

OK so it took minus 30 something with windchill and a helluva lot of snow, to motivate my son ( who sleeps till noon usually), to get up and go outside!
Who knew that at 21 playing in the snow could be so enticing :laughing:

Absolutely beautiful!! I'm not sure about the time you have available to you but, have you ever thought about window decorating for stores? What talent...and patience you have!

I neither have the imagination nor the energy to decorate like that :o.

Thank you, the hardest part was going up and down a rickety old 6' ladder, which didn't quite get me high enough, so my son held on while I stood on the very top on my tip toes, it was rather nerve wracking to be honest :laughing:

Absolutely beautiful. :cloud9:

Thank you! How many bows are on the tree? Well I haven't really counted, but I can tell you it's over 1000. Maybe 1200 ish, I had to buy a lot more bows this year because I did the entire tree this year. Previous years I only had to do the front and sides because the tree was always in a corner, being it's in a bay window this year I had no choice but to decorate the entire thing.
Yes that's my son, the one that hasn't been well lately, I was very happy to see him out there enjoying the snow like he did when he was a little kid, it seemed to perk him up, he truly enjoyed himself and man it was cold that day too -30 something! He dug the cave, where the back is there is another tunnel off to the right, but I wasn't gonna go out there and crawl thru it, even tho he begged and pleaded, I'm just not that brave!

Oh wow! I love how everything looks. I really miss decorating for Christmas:sad:
Thank you Ancientgirl, I'm glad you like it. :D

Thank you! Ya know LP, I have always wanted to start up a tree decorating business, that would include interior decorating for the holidays as well. I have boxes upon boxes of ornaments for different tree looks (that I have never used!). I would love to decorate store windows too! But to be honest, I just don't know how to go about starting such a business.
I have offered to do the dealerships trees (with the owner of my husbands dealership), but he didn't show much interest, so I didn't take it any further.

You could put all the photos in an album and take them around to different stores. All it takes is one store to start with until "word of mouth" gets around. :thumbs up

Wow - you go all out. Very pretty.

I don't have anything up and because my daughter is with her dad this year....nothing sparkly in my home.:sad:. If she is not there, I don't bother.

But hey - I like what you did.
