2011 Christmas Tour :: Living Room

Decorating for Christmas is so much fun.  I’m delighted that you stopped by our home.  Christmas cheer starts outside with a lighted PB inspired garland and ball embellished wreaths to match.

We usually enter our home by way of the screened porch.  This area is decorated for the season, too.

The screened porch door takes us into the living room decorated in traditional red, green, gold, and silver.

I shared our mantle here.   Making my own fresh wreaths is a pleasure.

Glittered pinecones shine in the morning light.

I love how the cloche glows in this picture.

Swarovski crystal snowflakes send sparkles of diffracted light all over the living room.

The 2011 snowflake is a beautiful design.

Thanks for stopping by our home.  I’ll share more rooms this week.  I’m looking forward to seeing your homes decorated for Christmas as well.

  2. Simply beautiful

  3. I love the combination of traditional and natural elements of the wreath and pinecone with the sparkle of glass and crystal. I could sit in this room all afternoon sipping on hot cider.

    Spectacular!! I love the homemade wreaths, especially the one outside. The crystal tree is brilliant and beautiful. We lived near “crystal” country in Germany back in the 80’s when my hubby was stationed there with the Army. Crystal shops in every corner and lots of bargains. I wish I had bought more than just a bowl and bell. These crystal stars are so elegant, I would love to see how they glisten around the room! So festive 🙂
