A Bit of Holiday Decor'...

Hey y'all! I hope you are having a fabulous week! Well, this year Christmas is sneaking up on me way faster than it ever has! I usually have the whole house (inside and out) decorated right after Thanksgiving. But this year I have been so busy and time is slipping away so fast. I did get up our tree, which I already shared with you guys. Well today I put up just a little bit more to make the house feel more festive. This is nowhere near what I usually do, but it will have to do. Next year I will have to get my rear in gear a lot sooner! LOL!

Here is our holiday table top. I went with red dishes, lime green chargers, and a toile place mat for the individual settings. For the center of the table, I added a beautiful piece that my Mom gave me for Christmas last year. I also added 2 glasses because I just couldn't pick between which one I liked best. Tee Hee!
 Here is an up close of the place setting...
 Here are the 2 glasses I used. They were both just too cute to choose between. I purchased both of them at the Christmas Tree Shoppe. The tall, thin Santa one I purchased this year and the candy cane one I purchased last year.
 Here is an up close of my centerpiece. It is the neatest vase that you can put any type of drink/cocoa into. It has a little spigot on the outside. Isn't it cute?! A BIG thanks to my Mom!!! Does she know me or what?! She always gives me the cutest stuff!
 Just one of the little personalized wooden decorations we have. I set this at the end of the bar as you go into the kitchen.
 I added a few holiday decorations in with my things that always sit on the bar in the kitchen. I love this tall, red reindeer. I bought him at a craft fair last year. The little gift box with trees on it is from my Mom too.
 The deer is really sparkly and has the cutest ribbon embellishment!
 And just had to show this off. Katie Scarlett and I have received so many cute cards and pictures from our friends at Yorkie Talk. I began putting them up on this cork thingy on the wall near Katie Scarlett's doggy condo. We ran out of room and had to start putting them on the fridge, but I still wanted to share a few of them. Look at all these adorable Yorkies we have to look at! Katie Scarlett loves to look at them every day!
Not much this year, but with the decorations and my holiday scented tart melting in the wax warmer, the house sure does feel festive! Merry Christmas everyone!

Pin It!

Wow it looks so festive! Love all the decorations but table is my favorite. I love a beautifully set table as so often anymore where ever you go people are eating off paper plates. I am the first to admit I am guilty of the paper plates as it is so easy. I just know you will have a wonderful Christmas.

Very cute and festive! I love your decorations! I still think you should be an interior decorator!
