Holiday Mashup

Jewel Tones

As we’re dashing through our day, decking the halls and dreaming of a white Christmas, we have to remember to just take a deep breath and enjoy the beauty of o’ Christmas tree and the holly and the ivy that add a festive touch to our holiday décor.  And while the twelve days of Christmas are flying by, we’re hoping that there’ll be jingle bells and silver bells in our future and perhaps some silent nights…  In the meantime, enjoy this holiday mashup (a great one by our favorite acapella group, Pentatonix) and god rest ye merry gentlemen and women!

Door Decor and More…

What do you get when you mix this…

Green and Glitter

with this?

A Door with Swag

A silvery, sparkly drop to decorate our doors!  We knew as soon as we saw the top image in Haus Design’s Holiday How-to’s that we were going to change things up a bit this year and forgo the traditional wreath for something a bit more interesting.  Once again, our talented friends at Nielsen’s in Darien translated our thoughts into beautiful reality and now our doors are divinely decked out for Christmas.

Ta-da!

We’ve also been adding some sparkle to the dining room with a charming boxwood topiary decorated with silver garlands, balls and pine cones…

Birds and Tree

while vintage-like baubles hang from the chandelier.

Silvered Touches

And the tree is trimmed with ornaments collected over the years, including our favorite small silver frames holding pictures of the boys as babies.  What’s not to love about the holiday season with all its glitter and festive fun (even when there’s still a ton of wrapping to be done!)

Trimmed and Terrific

What are your plans this weekend with four days and counting?  Whatever they are, we hope you have fun!
